MATTHEW
CHAPTER 1
The book of the genealogy of Yeshue-Meshikha, the son of Dawid, the son of Avraham; Avraham fathered Iskhaq, Iskhaq fathered Yaquv, Yaquv fathered Yehudah and his brothers, 3 Yehudah fathered Partz and Zarakh by Taymar. Partz fathered Khesrun, Khesrun fathered Aram, 4 Aram fathered Aminadav, Aminadav fathered Nakhshun, Nakhshun fathered Salmun, 5 Salmun fathered Baaz by Rakhav, Baaz fathered Euvid by Reuth, Euvid fathered Ishai, [and] 6 Ishai fathered Dawid the king. Dawid fathered Shelemun by the wife of Auriya, 7 Shelemun fathered Rekhavam, Rekhavam fathered Aviya, Aviya fathered Aysa, 8 Aysa fathered Yahushaphat, Yahushaphat fathered Yuram, Yuram fathered Euziya, 9 Euziya fathered Yutham, Yutham fathered Akhaz, Akhaz fathered Khizaqiya,10 Khizaqiya fathered Menashe, Menashe fathered Ahmun, Ahmun fathered Yushiya, 11 Yushiya fathered Yukanya and his brothers in the captivity of Babel. 12 And after the captivity of Babel, Yukanya fathered Shelatheil, Shelatheil fathered Zurbabel, 13 Zurbabel fathered Eliyaqim, Eliyaqim fathered Ahzur, 14 Ahzur fathered Zaduq, Zaduq fathered Akin, Akin fathered Eliyud, 15 Eliyud fathered Eliazar, Eliazar fathered Mathan, Mathan fathered Yaquv, 16 Yaquv fathered Yauseph, the father of Maryam, from whom Yeshue, who was called Meshikha, was born. 17 Therefore, all the generations from Avraham until Dawid, [were] fourteen generations, and from Dawid until the captivity of Babel, fourteen generations, and from the captivity of Babel until Meshikha, fourteen generations. 18 Now the birth of Yeshue-Meshikha was like this: when Maryam his mother was engaged to Yauseph, before they were joined in marriage, she was found [to be] pregnant from the Rukha d’Qudsha. 19 But Yauseph her husband was upright and was not willing to disgrace her and he was thinking that he would dismiss her privately. 20 But while he was considering these [things], an angel of Marya appeared to him in a dream and said to him, “Yauseph, son of Dawid, do not be afraid to take Maryam your wife, for he that is fathered in her [is] from the Rukha d’Qudsha. 21 And she will give birth to a son and she will call his name Yeshue, for he will give life to his people from their sins.” 22 Now all this that happened [was] that it would be fulfilled what was spoken from Marya by way of the prophet: 23 Behold, a virgin will conceive and will give birth to a son and they will call his name Amanuil, which is interpreted, our Alaha [is] with us. 24 And when Yauseph rose up from his sleep, he did as the angel of Marya had commanded him and he took his wife. 25 And he did not know her until she had given birth to her firstborn son. And she called his name Yeshue.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 2
Now when Yeshue was born in Beth-Lekhem of Yehuda in the days of Herod the king, Magushe came from the east to Urishlem 2 and said, “Where is the king of the Yehudaye who was born? For we have seen his star in the east and we have come to worship him.” 3 And Herod the king heard and was troubled and all Urishlem with him. 4 And he gathered all of the chief Page 2 of 276

priests and Saphrey of the people and was asking them where Meshikha was [to be] born. 5 And they said, “In Beth-Lekhem of Yehuda,” for so it is written in the prophet: 6 You also, Beth-Lekhem of Yehuda, you will not be the least among the kings of Yehuda, for from you will go out a king who will shepherd my people Israyel. 7 Then Herod secretly called the Magushe and learned from them at what time the star appeared to them. 8 And he sent them to Beth-Lekhem and said to them, “Go, search for the boy diligently and when you have found him, come, inform me that I may also go [and] worship him.” 9 And when they had heard from the king, they went away and behold, the star that they had seen in the east went before them, until it came [and] stood over where the boy was.10 And when they saw the star, they rejoiced [with] very great joy. 11 And they entered the house and they saw the boy with Maryam his mother and they fell down [and] worshipped him and they opened their treasures and offered him gifts, gold and myrrh and incense. 12 And it was shown to them in a dream that they should not return to Herod and by another way, they went to their country. 13 And when they had gone, an angel of Marya appeared in a dream to Yauseph and said to him, “Get up. Lead the child and his mother and flee to Egypt and stay there until I tell you, for Herod is going to seek for the child in order to destroy him.” 14 Now Yauseph rose up, took up the child and his mother in the night, and fled to Egypt. 15 And he remained there until the death of Herod, so that it would be fulfilled what was spoken from Marya by the prophet who said: From Egypt I have called my son. 16 Then Herod, when he saw that he was mocked by the Magushe, was very angry and sent [and] killed all the boys of Beth-Lekhem and of all its borders from two years old and under, according to the time that he had investigated from the Magushe. 17 Then was fulfilled what was spoken by way of Eramiya the prophet, who said: 18 A voice was heard in Ramtha, crying and great mourning, Rakheil crying for her sons and not wanting to be comforted, because they were not. 19 Now when Herod the king died, an angel of Marya appeared in a dream to Yauseph in Egypt. 20 And he said to him, “Get up. Lead the child and his mother and go to the land of Israyel, for those who were seeking the life of the child have died.” 21 And Yauseph rose up [and] led the child and his mother and came to the land of Israyel. 22 But when he heard that Archelaus was king in Yehudah in place of Herod his father, he was afraid to go there and it was shown to him in a dream that he should go to the land of Galila. 23 And he came [and] lived in the city that is called Natsrath, so that it would be fulfilled what was spoken by the prophet: “He will be called a Natsraya.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 3
Now in those days Yukhanan the Immerser came and was preaching in the desert of Yehuda. And he said, “Repent. The kingdom of heaven is near.” 3 For this is he about whom it was said by way of Eshaya the prophet: The voice of one crying in the desert: prepare the way of Marya and make straight his paths. 4 Now [this] Yukhanan, his clothes were of the hair of camels and a girdle of skin [was] on his loins and his food [was] locusts and honey of the desert. 5 Then Urishlem went out to him and all Yehuda and all the region that was around the Yurdinan. 6 And they were immersed by him in the Yurdinan River when they confessed their sins. 7 And when he saw many from the Perishye and from the Zaduqaye who came to be immersed, he said to them, “Generation of vipers! Who has informed you to flee from the wrath that will come? 8 Produce, therefore, the fruits that are proper for repentance. 9 And do not think or say within

yourselves that we have Avraham [as a] father, for I say to you, Alaha is able from these stones to raise up sons to Avraham.10 Now behold, the ax is placed on the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree that does not bear good fruit will be cut down and thrown into the fire. 11I immerse you with water for repentance, but he who comes after me is stronger than I [am], whose sandals I am not worthy to carry. He will immerse you with the Rukha d’Qudsha and with fire, 12 he whose winnowing fan [is] in his hand and he will cleanse his threshing floors. And he will gather the wheat to his granaries, and he will burn the chaff in a fire that does not go out.” 13 Then Yeshue came from Galila to the Yurdinan to Yukhanan to be immersed by him. 14 But Yukhanan restrained him and said, “I need to be immersed by you and are you coming to me?” 15 But Yeshue answered and said to him, “Allow [it] now, for so it is proper for us to fulfill all uprightness.” And then he allowed him [to immerse him]. 16 And when Yeshue was immersed, immediately he came out of the water and heaven was opened to him and he saw the Rukha d’Alaha that was descending as a dove and it came on him. 17 And behold, [there was] a voice from heaven that said, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am pleased.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 4
Then Yeshue was led by the Rukha d’Qudsha to the wilderness to be tempted by the Accuser. And he fasted forty days and forty nights and afterwards he was hungry. 3 And he who was tempting came near and said to him, “If you are the Son of Alaha, say that these stones should become bread.” 4 But he answered and said, “It is written: Man does not live by bread alone, but by every word that comes out of the mouth of Alaha.” 5 Then the Accuser led him to the holy city and placed him on the outer edge of the temple. 6 And he said to him, “If you are the Son of Alaha, throw yourself down, for it is written: He will command his angels concerning you, and on their hands they will bear you up, so that you should not strike your foot on a stone.” 7 Yeshue said to him, “Again it is written: You should not tempt Marya your Alaha.” 8 Again, the Accuser took him to a mountain that was very high. And he showed him all the kingdoms of the world and their glory. 9 And he said to him, “All these [kingdoms] I will give to you if you will fall down [and] worship me.”10 Then Yeshue said to him, “Go, Satan! For it is written: You should worship Marya your Alaha and for him alone you should work.” 11 Then the Accuser left him and behold, angels came near and ministered to him. 12 Now when Yeshue heard that Yukhanan had been delivered up, he went away to Galila. 13 And he left Natsrath and came [and] lived in Kepharnakhum by the shore of the sea in the territory of Zebulun and of Naphtali, 14 that it would be fulfilled what was spoken by way of Eshaya the prophet who said: 15 The land of Zebulun, the land of Naphtali, the way of the sea, the crossings of the Yurdinan, Galila of the Gentiles, 16 the people who sit in darkness have seen a great light and a light has dawned to them who sit in the land and the shadows of death. 17 From then [on], Yeshue began to preach and to say, “Repent, for the kingdom of heaven is near.” 18 And while he was walking along the shore of the Sea of Galila, he saw two brothers, Shimon who was called Kipha and Andrew his brother, who were casting nets into the sea, for they were fishermen. 19 And Yeshue said to them, “Follow me and I will make you to be fishermen of men.” 20 And they immediately left their nets and went after him. 21 And when he crossed over from there he saw two other brothers, Yaquv, the son of Zabedai, and Yukhanan, his brother, in a ship with Zabedai, their father, who were mending their nets and he called them. 22 And immediately they left the ship and their father and
2 1

Page 4 of 276

they went after him. 23 And Yeshue traveled around in all Galila and taught in their synagogues and preached the gospel of the kingdom and cured every disease and sickness among the people. 24 And his fame was heard in all Suriya and they brought to him all those who were very sick with various diseases and those who were oppressed with severe pains and possessed [ones] and [those] who were insane and paralyzed [ones] and he healed them. 25 And large crowds followed him from Galila and from the Decapolis and from Urishlem and from Yehuda and from beyond the Yurdinan.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 5
And when Yeshue saw the crowd, he climbed a mountain and when he sat down, his disciples came near to him. 2 And he opened his mouth and was teaching them and said, 3 “Blessed [are] the poor in spirit, because theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 4 Blessed [are] the mourners, because they will be comforted. 5 Blessed [are] the meek, because they will inherit the earth. 6 Blessed [are] those who hunger and thirst for uprightness, because they will be satisfied. 7 Blessed [are] the merciful, because on them will be mercies. 8 Blessed [are] those who are pure in their heart[s], because they will see Alaha. 9 Blessed [are] the peacemakers, because they will be called the sons of Alaha.10 Blessed [are] those who are persecuted because of uprightness, because theirs is the kingdom of heaven. 11 You are blessed when they curse you and persecute you and say every evil word against you falsely because of me. 12 Then rejoice and be glad, because your reward is great in heaven, for so they persecuted the prophets who [were] before you. 13 You are the salt of the earth, but if the salt should go flat, with what will it be salted? It is not fit for anything, but to be thrown outside and to be trampled on by man. 14 You are the light of the world. It is not possible to hide a city that is built on a mountain. 15 And they do not light a lamp and place it under a basket, but on a lampstand and it lights all those who are in the house. 16 Likewise, your light should shine before men, so that they will see your good works and will glorify your Father who is in heaven. 17 Do not think that I have come to change the Namusa or the prophets. I have not come to change, but to fulfill [them]. 18 For truly I say to you, until heaven and earth pass away, not one jot or one stroke will pass from the Namusa until everything happens. 19 Therefore, whoever changes one [jot] of these small commandments (and will teach so to men) will be called little in the kingdom of heaven. But all who will do and teach this [Namusa] will be called great in the kingdom of heaven. 20 For I say to you, unless your uprightness exceeds [that] of the Saphrey and Perishye, you will not enter the kingdom of heaven. 21 You have heard that it was said to the ancient [ones]: You should not kill. And anyone who kills is condemned to judgment. 22 But I say to you, whoever provokes his brother to anger without cause is condemned to judgment. And anyone who says to his brother, “[I] spit [on you]!” is condemned to the assembly. And he, who says, “Fool,” is condemned to the Gehenna of fire. 23 If, therefore, you offer your offering on the altar and there you remember that your brother holds a certain grudge against you, 24 leave your offering there on the altar and first go, be reconciled with your brother and then come, offer your offering. 25 Reconcile with your opponent at law quickly while you [are] with him on the journey, so that your opponent at law will not deliver you to the judge and the judge deliver you to the officer and you fall [into] prison. 26 And truly I say to you, you will not come out from there until you give back the last coin. 27 You have heard that it was said: You should not commit adultery. 28 But I say to you, anyone who looks at Page 5 of 276
1

a woman as desiring her immediately commits adultery with her in his heart. 29 Now if your right eye causes you to offend, tear it out and throw it from you. For it is better for you that one of your members should be lost and not [that] your whole body should fall into Gehenna. 30 And if your right hand causes you to offend, cut [it] off [and] throw it from you. For it is better for you that one of your members should be lost and not [that] your whole body should fall into Gehenna. 31 It was said: He who dismisses his wife must give her a writing of divorce. 32 But I say to you, anyone who dismisses his wife outside of the case of fornication makes her commit adultery and he who marries a dismissed woman commits adultery. 33 Again, you have heard that it was said of the ancient [ones]: Do not be false in your oath, but complete your oath to Marya. 34 But I say to you, you should not swear at all, neither by heaven, which is the throne of Alaha, 35 nor by earth, which is the footstool that is under his feet, not even by Urishlem, which is the city of the great king. 36 You should not even swear by your head, because you are not able to make one separate hair [either] black or white. 37 But your word should be yes, yes, and no, no. Anything that is apart from these [things] abounds from evil. 38 You have heard that it was said: Eye for eye and tooth for tooth. 39 But I say to you, you should not oppose an evil [one], but he who strikes you on your right cheek, turn to him the other also. 40 And he who wants to go to court with you and to take your coat, give him your cloak also. 41 He who compels you [to go] one mile, go with him two. 42 Whoever asks you, give to him. And he who wants to borrow from you, you should not refuse him. 43 You have heard that it was said: Love your neighbor and hate your enemy. 44 But I say to you, love your enemies and bless those who curse you and do that which is pleasing to him who hates you and pray for those who take you by force and persecute you, 45 so that you may be the sons of your Father who is in heaven, who causes his sun to rise on the good and on the bad and causes his rain to come down on the upright and on the wicked. 46 For if you love those who love you, what is the reward for you? Behold, [do] not even the tax collectors do the same? 47 And if you greet only your brothers, what extraordinary [thing] are you doing? Behold, [do] not even the tax collectors do this? 48 Therefore, be made perfect, as your Father who is in heaven is perfect.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 6
And take heed with regard to your almsgiving that you should not do it before men, so that you may be seen by them, otherwise you [will] not have a reward from your Father who is in heaven. 2 Therefore, whenever you do almsgiving, do not sound a trumpet before you as the hypocrites do in the synagogues and in the marketplaces, so that they may be praised by men. And truly I say to you, they have received their reward. 3 But when you do almsgiving, you should not let your left hand know what your right hand does, 4 so that your almsgiving may be in secret and your Father, who sees in secret, shall repay you openly. 5 And when you pray, you should not be as the hypocrites, who love to stand in the synagogues and on the corners of the marketplaces to pray, to be seen by men. And truly I say to you, they have received their reward. 6 But when you pray, enter your room and close your door and pray to your Father, who is in secret, and your Father, who sees in secret, will repay you openly. 7 And when you are praying, you should not talk idly as the heathens [do], for they think that they are heard by much speaking. 8 Therefore, do not imitate them, for your Father knows what is needed by you before you ask him. 9 Therefore pray like this: “Our Father, who is in heaven, may your name be holy.10 May Page 6 of 276

your kingdom come. May your will occur, as in heaven, also on earth. 11 Give us the bread of our need today 12 and forgive us our debts, as also we have forgiven our debtors. 13 And do not let us enter into trial, but deliver us from the Evil [one], because the kingdom and the power and the glory are yours, forever and ever.” 14 For if you forgive men their offenses, your Father who is in heaven will also forgive you, 15 but if you do not forgive men, your Father will also not forgive you your offenses. 16 Now when you fast, you should not be sad as the hypocrites, for they distort their faces so that they may be seen by men that they are fasting. And truly I say to you, they have received their reward. 17 But when you fast, wash your face and anoint your head, 18 so that [the fact that] you are fasting may not be seen by men, but by your Father who is in secret. And your Father, who sees in secret, will reward you. 19 You should not place for yourself treasures on earth, where moth and rust corrupt and where thieves break in and steal. 20 But place for yourself treasures in heaven, where neither moth nor rust corrupt and where thieves do not break in and do not steal. 21 For where your treasure is, there is also your heart. 22 The lamp of the body is the eye. Therefore, if your eye will be simple, your whole body also is enlightened. 23 But if your eye will be evil, your whole body will be dark. If then the light that is in you is darkness, how great will be your darkness. 24 No man is able to serve two lords. For either he will hate the one and will love the other or he will honor the one and will treat the other with contempt. You are not able to serve Alaha and wealth. 25 Because of this, I say to you, you should not be worried about your life, what you will eat and what you will drink and not about your body, what you will wear. Behold, is not life more than food and the body [more] than clothing? 26 Look at the birds in the sky that do not sow nor reap nor gather into storehouses, yet your Father who is in heaven feeds them. Behold, are not you more important than they? 27 And who among you, while worrying, is able to add one cubit to his height? 28 And why are you worried about clothes? Consider the lilies of the field, how they grow without toil and without spinning. 29 But I say to you, not even Shelemun in all his glory was clothed like one of these. 30 Now if Alaha so clothes the grass of the field that today is and tomorrow falls into the oven, [will he] not much more [clothe] you, oh little of faith? 31 Therefore, do not be worried or say, “What will we eat?” or, “What will we drink?” or, “What will we wear?” 32 For the nations of the world seek all these [things]. And your Father who is in heaven knows that even all these [things] are needed by you. 33 But seek first the kingdom of Alaha and his justification and all these [things] will be added to you. 34 Therefore, do not be worried about tomorrow, for tomorrow will care for itself. Sufficient for the day is its [own] evil.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 7
You should not judge, so that you will not be judged. 2 For with the judgment that you judge, you will be judged and by the measure that you measure, it will be measured to you. 3 And why do you see the straw that is in the eye of your brother and you do not observe the beam that is in your eye? 4 Or how do you say to your brother, “Allow [me] to take out the straw from your eye,” and behold, a beam [is] in your eye? 5 Hypocrite! First take out the beam from your eye and then you will be proved capable to take out the straw from the eye of your brother. 6 You should not give a holy [thing] to dogs and you should not throw your pearls before pigs, so that they will not trample them with their feet and turn [and] attack you. 7 Ask and it will be given to you. Seek and you will find. Knock and it will be opened to you. 8 For everyone who asks will Page 7 of 276
1

receive and he who seeks will find and to him who knocks, it will be opened to him. 9 Or what man among you, whose son asks him for bread, will hold out a stone to him? 10 And if he asks him for a fish, will he hold out a snake to him? 11 And if therefore you who are evil know to give good gifts to your sons, how much more will your Father who is in heaven give good [gifts] to those who ask him? 12 All that you desire that men should do to you, so also do to them, for this is the Namusa and the prophets. 13 Enter by the straight door because wide is the door and broad [is] the road that leads to loss and many are those who go in it. 14 How narrow the door and straight the road that leads to life and few are those who find it. 15 Beware of false prophets, who come to you in the clothing of lambs, but within are savage wolves. 16 Now by their fruit you will know them. Do they pick grapes from thorns or figs from thistles? 17 So every healthy tree bears beautiful fruit, but a diseased tree bears diseased fruit. 18 A healthy tree is not able to bear diseased fruit and a diseased tree [is not able] to bear healthy fruit. 19 Every tree that does not bear healthy fruit is cut down and thrown into the fire. 20 So then, by their fruit you will know them. 21 Not all who say to me, “My Lord, my Lord,” will enter the kingdom of heaven, but he who does the will of my Father who is in heaven. 22 Many will say to me in that day, “My Lord, my Lord, in your name have we not prophesied and in your name cast out demons and in your name done many miracles?” 23 And then I will confess to them, “I have never known you. Go away from me, workers of wickedness.” 24 Therefore, everyone, who hears these words of mine and does them, will be compared to a wise man who built his house on a rock. 25 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and they beat against the house but it did not fail, for its foundations were set on a rock. 26 And everyone, who hears these words of mine and does not do them, will be compared to a foolish man who built his house on the sand. 27 And the rain fell and the floods came and the winds blew and they beat against the house and it fell and its fall was great.” 28 And it happened that when Yeshue finished these words, the crowds were amazed at his teaching. 29 For he was teaching them as [one having] authority and not as their Saphrey and the Perishye.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 8
Now when he came down from the mountain, large crowds followed him. 2 And behold, a certain leper came [and] worshipped him and said, “My Lord, if you desire, you are able to cleanse me.” 3 And Yeshue stretched out his hand [and] touched him, and said, “I desire. Be cleansed.” And immediately his leprosy was cleansed. 4 And Yeshue said to him, “See [that] you tell [no] one, but go, show yourself to the priests and offer an offering, as Mushe commanded for their witness.” 5 Now when Yeshue entered Kepharnakhum, a certain centurion approached him and was entreating him. 6 And he said, “My Lord, my child is lying at home and is paralyzed and seriously tortured with pain.” 7 Yeshue said to him, “I will come and heal him.” 8 The centurion answered and he said, “My Lord, I am not worthy that you should enter under my roof, but only speak a word and my child will be healed. 9 For I also am a man who is under authority and there are soldiers under my hand. And I say to this one, “Go,” and he goes, and to another, “Come,” and he comes and to my servant, “Do this,” and he does [it].”10 And when Yeshue heard [this], he marveled and said to those who had come with him, “Truly I say to you, not even in Israyel have I found faith like this. 11 And I say to you, many will come from the east and from the west and will lie down to eat with Avraham and Iskhaq and Yaquv in the kingdom of heaven, 12 but Page 8 of 276
1

the sons of the kingdom will go out to outer darkness. There will be crying and gnashing of teeth.” 13 And Yeshue said to the centurion, “Go! As you have believed, it will be to you.” And his child was healed immediately. 14 And Yeshue came to the house of Shimon and saw his mother-in-law who was lying down, and a fever had taken hold on her. 15 And he touched her hand and the fever left her and she got up and was serving him. 16 And when it became evening, they brought to him many possessed of devils and he cast out their devils by a word and he healed all those who were very diseased, 17 so that it would be fulfilled what was spoken by way of Eshaya the prophet who said: He will take our sorrows and he will bear our sicknesses. 18 And when Yeshue saw the many crowds that were surrounding him, he commanded that they should go to the opposite shore. 19 And a certain Saphra approached and said to him, “My Master, I will follow you to the place where you are going.” 20 Yeshue said to him, “Foxes have holes and the bird of heaven [has] a nest, but the Son of Man has no [home] where he may lay his head.” 21 And another of his disciples said to him, “My Lord, allow me first to go [and] bury my father.” 22 But Yeshue said to him, “Follow me and leave the town to bury their dead.” 23 And when Yeshue boarded a boat, his disciples boarded with him. 24 And behold, a great earthquake occurred in the sea, so that the boat was covered by the waves. Now Yeshue was asleep. 25 And his disciples came near [and] they woke him and said to him, “Our Lord, save us. We are being destroyed.” 26 Yeshue said to them, “Why are you afraid, oh little of faith?” Then he stood and rebuked the wind and the sea and there was a great calm. 27 And the men were amazed and said, “Who is this whom the winds and the sea obey?” 28 And when Yeshue had come to the opposite shore to the place of the Gedraye, two [men] possessed of devils met him, who were coming out from the tombs, very evil, so that no one was able to pass by that road. 29 And they cried out and said, “What have we to do with you, Yeshue, Son of Alaha? Have you come here before the time to torment us?” 30 Now there was a herd of many pigs a distance from them that was feeding. 31 And those demons were begging him and said, “If you cast us out, allow us to go to the herd of pigs.” 32 Yeshue said to them, “Go!” And immediately they went out and attacked the pigs and that whole herd went straight over a steep rock and they fell into the sea and died in the water. 33 Now those who were tending [the herd] fled and went to the city and made known everything that had occurred and about those possessed of devils. 34 And the whole city went out for a meeting with Yeshue. And when they saw him, they begged him to leave their borders.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 9
And he boarded the ship and crossed [and] came to his city. 2 And they brought to him a paralytic lying on a pallet. And Yeshue saw their faith and said to the paralytic, “Take courage, my son, your sins are forgiven.” 3 But some of the Saphrey said among themselves, “This one blasphemes.” 4 But Yeshue knew their thoughts and said to them, “Why do you think evil in your heart[s]? 5 For what is easier to say, “Your sins are forgiven,” or to say, “Get up [and] walk?” 6 But that you will know that the Son of Man has authority to forgive sins on earth,” he said to that paralytic, “Get up, take up your pallet and go to your house.” 7 And he got up [and] went to his house. 8 Now when the crowds saw [this], they were frightened and glorified Alaha, who gave authority such as this to men. 9 And when Yeshue passed over from there, he saw a man who was sitting [at] the customs-house, whose name [was] Mattai. And he said to him, “Follow me.” And he rose up [and] went after him.10 And as they were sitting to eat in the house, many tax Page 9 of 276

collectors and sinners came and sat to eat with Yeshue and with his disciples. 11 And when the Perishye saw, they said to his disciples, “Why does your master eat with tax collectors and sinners?” 12 But Yeshue when he heard said to them, “The healthy have no need for a doctor, but those who are very diseased. 13 Go, learn what this is: I require compassion and not sacrifice, for I did not come to call the just [ones], but sinners.” 14 Then the disciples of Yukhanan approached him and said, “Why do we and the Perishye fast much and your disciples do not fast?” 15 Yeshue said to them, “Are the guests of the wedding feast able to fast as long as the bridegroom [is] with them? But the days are coming when the bridegroom will be taken from them and then they will fast. 16 No one places a new patch on a worn-out garment, lest the patch should tear away from the garment and the hole become greater. 17 And they do not place new wine in worn-out wineskins, lest the wineskins should rip and the wine would be poured out and the wineskins be ruined. But they place new wine in new wineskins and both of them are preserved.” 18 Now while he was speaking these [things] to them, a certain ruler came near [and] worshipped him and said, “My daughter is now dead. But come, place your hand on her and she will live.” 19 And Yeshue got up and his disciples followed him. 20 And behold, a woman, whose blood had flowed [for] twelve years, came from behind him and touched the edge of his clothes, 21 for she was saying within herself, “If I only touch his clothing, I will be healed.” 22 Now Yeshue turned [and] saw her and said to her, “Be comforted, my daughter, your faith has given you life.” And that woman was healed immediately. 23 And Yeshue came to the house of the ruler and saw the musicians and the crowds, who were troubled. 24 And he said to them, “Go away, for the girl is not dead, but is asleep.” And they were laughing at him. 25 And when he dismissed the crowds, he entered in, took her by the hand and the girl got up. 26 And this news went out into all this land. 27 And when Yeshue passed over from there, two blind men followed him, who were crying out and saying, “Have compassion on us, Son of Dawid.” 28 And when he came to the house, those blind men approached him. Yeshue said to them, “Do you believe that I am able to do this?” They said to him, “Yes, our Lord.” 29 Then he touched their eyes and said, “As you have believed will it be to you.” 30 And immediately their eyes were opened and Yeshue rebuked them and said, “See [that] no man should know [about this].” 31 But they went out [and] spread his fame in all that land. 32 And when Yeshue went out, they brought to him a mute in whom was a devil. 33 And after the devil went out, that mute spoke and the crowds were amazed and said, “Never was it seen so in Israyel.” 34 But the Perishye were saying, “By the chief of devils, he casts out devils.” 35 And Yeshue journeyed into all the cities and into the villages and was teaching in their synagogues and preaching the gospel of the kingdom and healing all their diseases and all their pains. 36 And when Yeshue saw the crowds, he had compassion on them, because they were weary and scattered as sheep that do not have a shepherd. 37 And he said to his disciples, “The harvest is great, and the workers, few. 38 Entreat, therefore, the Lord of the harvest that he would send workers for his harvest.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 10
And he called his twelve disciples and gave them authority over unclean spirits to cast [them] out and to heal every pain and disease. 2 Now the names of the twelve apostles are these: first, Shimon, who was called Kipha, and Andrew, his brother, and Yaquv, the son of Zabedai, and Yukhanan, his brother, 3 and Philip and Bar-Tulmai and Tama and Mattai, the tax collector, Page 10 of 276
1

and Yaquv, the son of Alphaeus, and Labi, who was called Thaddaeus, 4 and Shimon, the Canaanite, and Yehudah Sekariuta, who betrayed him. 5 Yeshue sent these twelve and commanded them and said, “Do not go on the road of the heathens and do not enter the city of the Shamraye. 6 But go rather to the sheep that are lost from the house of Israyel. 7 And as you are going, preach and say, “The kingdom of heaven is near.” 8 Heal the sick and cleanse the lepers and cast out devils. Freely you have received, freely give. 9 Do not have gold or silver or brass in your purses10 or a wallet for the journey or two coats or shoes or staff, for a worker is worthy of his food. 11 And into whatever city or village you enter, ask who in it is worthy and there stay until you leave. 12 And when you enter a house, greet the household 13 and if the house is worthy, your peace will come on it. But if it is not worthy, your peace will return on you. 14 And whoever does not receive you and does not hear your words, when you leave the house or that village, shake off the dust from your feet. 15 And truly I say to you, it will be [more] pleasant for the land of Sedum and Amura in the day of judgment than for that city. 16 Behold, I send you as a lamb into the middle of wolves. Be therefore wise as snakes and harmless as doves. 17 And beware of men, for they will deliver you to the courts and they will beat you in their synagogues. 18 And they will bring you before governors and kings for my sake, for a witness to them and to the Gentiles. 19 Now when they deliver you up, do not be concerned how or what you should speak, for it will be given to you immediately what you should speak. 20 For it will not be you speaking, but the Rukha of your Father speaking in you. 21 But brother will deliver his brother to death and father his son. And children will rise up against their parents and they will kill them. 22 And you will be hated by all men, because of my name. But he who endures until the end will live. 23 Now when they persecute you in this city, flee to another, for truly I say to you, you will not complete all the cities of the house of Israyel before the Son of Man will come. 24 There is no disciple who is greater than his master, nor a servant [who is greater] than his lord. 25 It is sufficient for a disciple to be as his master and for a servant [to be] as his lord. If they call the lord of the house Beelzebub, how much more the sons of his house? 26 Therefore do not be afraid of them, for there is not anything that is covered that will not be revealed, or that is hidden that will not be made known. 27 What I say to you in darkness, you speak in the light. And what you hear in your ears, preach on the roofs. 28 And do not be afraid of those who kill the body, but are not able to kill the soul. But be afraid rather of him who is able to destroy the soul and body in Gehenna. 29 Are not two sparrows sold for a copper coin? And one of them does not fall on the earth without your Father. 30 Now yours, even all the hairs of your head are numbered. 31 Therefore do not be afraid. You are more important than many sparrows. 32 Everyone therefore who confesses me before men, I will confess him also before my Father who is in heaven. 33 But he who denies me before men, I will deny him also before my Father who is in heaven. 34 Do not think that I have come to bring harmony on earth. I have not come to bring harmony, but a sword. 35 For I have come to separate a man from his father and a daughter from her mother and a daughter-in-law from her mother-in-law. 36 And the enemies of a man [will be] his household. 37 He who loves father or mother more than me is not worthy of me and he who loves son or daughter more than me is not worthy of me. 38 And everyone who does not take up his cross and follow me is not worthy of me. 39 He who finds his life will lose it, and he who will lose his life because of me will find it. 40 He who receives you receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. 41 He who receives a prophet in the name of a prophet will receive the reward of a prophet, and he who receives a just [man] in the name of a just [man] will receive the reward of a just [man]. 42 And everyone who gives one of these little ones only a cup of cold [water] to drink in the name of a disciple, truly I say to you, he will not lose his reward.” Page 11 of 276

MATTHEW CHAPTER 11
And it happened that when Yeshue completed directing the twelve disciples, he went away from there to teach and to preach in their cities. 2 Now when Yukhanan, [being in] prison, heard of the deeds of Meshikha, he sent [word] by way of his disciples 3 and said to him, “Are you he who will come or should we expect another?” 4 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Go. Relate to Yukhanan those [things] that you have heard and seen. 5 The blind see and the lame walk and the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear and the dead are raised and the poor are given good news. 6 And he who is not offended by me is blessed.” 7 Now when they had gone, Yeshue began to speak to the crowds about Yukhanan, “What did you go out to the wilderness to see? A reed that is shaken by the wind? 8 And if not, what did you go out to see? A man who is clothed in soft robes? Behold, those who are clothed in soft [robes] are [in] the house of kings. 9 And if not, what did you go out to see? A prophet? Yes, I say to you, even [one] greater than a prophet.10 For this is he about whom it was written: Behold, I will send my messenger before your face that he would establish the way before you. 11 Truly I say to you, among those born of women has not stood one who is greater than Yukhanan the Immerser, but the least in the kingdom of heaven is greater than him. 12 Now from the days of Yukhanan the Immerser and until now, the kingdom of heaven was being guided with restraint and the restrainers were robbing it. 13 For all the prophets and the Torah have prophesied until Yukhanan. 14 And if you desire, accept that this is Eliya who was to come. 15 He who has ears to hear should hear. 16 But to what should I liken this generation? It is like children who sit in the marketplace and call out to their friends 17 and say, “We sang for you and you did not dance, and we mourned for you and you did not lament.” 18 For Yukhanan came not eating and not drinking, and they said, “There is a devil in him.” 19 The Son of Man came eating and drinking and they said, “Behold, a gluttonous man and [one who] drinks wine and a friend of tax collectors and of sinners.” Yet wisdom is justified by its works.” 20 Then Yeshue began to berate the cities, those in which his many miracles occurred and yet they did not repent. 21 And he was saying, “Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Beth-Sayada! Because if the miracles that were done in you had been done in Tsur and Tsaidan, doubtless they [would have] repented in sackclothes and in ashes. 22 But I say to you, it will be [more] pleasant for Tsur and Tsaidan in the day of judgment than for you. 23 And you Kepharnakhum, who has been raised up to heaven, will be brought down to Sheol. Because if the miracles had been done in Sedum that were done in you, she would stand to [this] day. 24 But I say to you, it will be [more] pleasant for the land of Sedum in the day of judgment than for you.” 25 At that time, Yeshue answered and said, “I give thanks to you my Father, Lord of heaven and of earth, that you have hidden these [things] from the wise and intelligent and you have revealed them to babies. 26 Yes, my Father, because such was the desire before you. 27 Everything has been delivered to me from my Father and no man knows the Son, except the Father. Also, no man knows the Father, except the Son and he whom the Son desires to reveal [him]. 28 Come to me, all of you [who] labor and bear burdens and I will refresh you. 29 Bear my yoke on you and learn from me that I am restful and I am meek in my heart, and you will find rest for your souls. 30 For my yoke is pleasant and my burden is light.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 12
At that time Yeshue was walking on the Shabtha [in] the sown fields and his disciples were hungry and began picking grain and eating [it]. 2 Now the Perishye, when they saw them, said to him, “Behold, your disciples are doing what is unlawful to do on the Shabtha.” 3 But he said to them, “Have you not read what Dawid did when he was hungry and those who were with him, 4 how he entered the house of Alaha and ate the bread of the table of Marya, that which was not lawful for him, nor for those who were with him to eat, but only for the priests? 5 Or have you not read in the Torah that the priests in the temple break the Shabtha and are without blame? 6 But I say to you, a greater [one] than [a priest of] the temple is here. 7 Now if you would have known what [was meant by], I desire mercy and not sacrifice, you would not have condemned those who are without blame, 8 for the Lord of the Shabtha is the Son of Man.” 9 And Yeshue went away from there and came to their synagogue.10 And a certain man was there whose hand was withered, and they were asking him and said, “Is it lawful to heal on the Shabtha?” so that they could accuse him. 11 Now he said to them, “What man among you who has a certain sheep, and if it falls into a pit on the day of Shabtha, would not grab [it] and lift it out? 12 Now how much more important [is] a man than a sheep? So then is it lawful on the Shabtha to do that which is good?” 13 Then he said to that man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched out his hand and it was restored like the other. 14 And the Perishye left and took counsel about him, so that they could destroy him. 15 But Yeshue knew [of it] and he went away from there. And large crowds followed him and he healed all of them. 16 And he charged them that they should not reveal him, 17 that it would be fulfilled what was spoken by way of Eshaya the prophet, who said: 18 Behold, my servant with whom I am well pleased, my beloved, for whom my soul longs. I will place my Rukha on him and he will declare judgment to the nations. 19 He will not dispute and he will not cry out and no man will hear his voice in the marketplace. 20 The broken reed, he will not break down, and the lamp that is dying out, he will not extinguish, until judgment comes to pass for victory 21 and the nations will trust in his name. 22 Then they brought to him a certain [one] possessed of a devil that was mute and blind and he healed him so that the mute and blind man could talk and could see. 23 And all the crowds were marveling and said, “Is this not the Son of Dawid?” 24 But the Perishye, when they heard [this], were saying, “This [man] does not cast out demons, but by Beelzebub, the chief of devils.” 25 Now Yeshue knew their thoughts and said to them, “Every kingdom that is divided against itself will be destroyed. And every house and city that is divided against itself will not stand. 26 And if Satan casts out Satan, he is divided against himself. How then does his kingdom stand? 27 And if by Beelzebub I cast out devils, in what way do your sons cast them out? Because of this, they will be judges of you. 28 And if by the Rukha d’Alaha I cast out devils, the kingdom of Alaha has come near to you. 29 Or how is a man able to enter into the house of a strong man and to rob his possessions, except first he will bind the strong man and then rob his house? 30 He who is not with me is against me. And he who does not gather with me indeed scatters. 31 Because of this, I say to you, all sins and blasphemies will be forgiven to men, but blasphemy that is against the Rukha will not be forgiven to men. 32 And anyone who will say a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven. But anyone who will speak against the Rukha d’Qudsha will not be forgiven, neither in this age nor in the age that is to come. 33 Either make the tree fine and its fruit fine or make the tree bad and its fruit bad, for a tree is known by its fruit. 34 Generation of vipers! How are you who are bad able to speak good [things]? For from the fullness of the heart the mouth speaks. 35 A good man from good treasures Page 13 of 276
1

produces good [things] and a bad man from bad treasures produces bad [things]. 36 For I say to you, [for] every idle word that men speak, they will give an account of it in the day of judgment. 37 For by your words you will be justified and by your words you will be condemned.” 38 Then answered some of the Saphrey and of the Perishye and said to him, “Teacher, we desire to see a sign from you.” 39 But he answered and said to them, “An evil and adulterous generation seeks a sign, yet a sign will not be given to it, except the sign of Yaunan the prophet. 40 For as Yaunan was in the belly of the fish three days and three nights, so will the Son of Man be in the heart of the earth three days and three nights. 41 The Ninevite men will stand in judgment with this generation and will condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Yaunan. And behold, one who is greater than Yaunan is present. 42 The queen of the south will stand in judgment with this generation and she will condemn it, because she came from the ends of the earth to hear the wisdom of Shelemun. And behold, one who is more than Shelemun is here. 43 Now when an unclean spirit goes out from a man, it wanders in places in which there is no water and it seeks rest, yet does not find [it]. 44 Then it says, “I will return to my house from where I came out.” And it comes [and] finds that it is empty and swept and set in order. 45 Then it will go [and] lead with it seven other spirits who are more evil than it and they will enter and dwell in it. And the end of that man will be more evil than his beginning. So it will be to this evil generation.” 46 Now while he was speaking to the crowds, his mother and his brothers came [and] they were standing outside and requesting to speak with him. 47 Now someone said to him, “Behold, your mother and your brothers are standing outside and requesting to speak with you.” 48 But he answered and said to the one who had spoken to him, “Who is my mother and who are my brothers?” 49 And he stretched out his hand toward his disciples and said, “Behold, my mother and behold, my brothers. 50 For everyone who does the will of my Father who is in heaven is my brother and my sister and my mother.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 13
Now on that day, Yeshue went out from the house and sat by the shore of the sea. 2 And large crowds were gathered around him so that he boarded a ship to sit down and the whole crowd was standing on the shore of the sea. 3 And he was speaking many [things] with them in parables and said, “Behold, a sower went out to sow. 4 And while he was sowing, it happened that [some seed] fell by the side of the road. And a bird came and ate it. 5 And other [seed] fell on rocky ground where there was not much soil and immediately it sprouted, because there was no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun came up, it became hot and because it had no root, it dried up. 7 And other [seed] fell among thorns and the thorns grew up and choked it. 8 And other [seed] fell on good earth and bore fruit, some a hundred and some sixty and some thirty[fold]. 9 He who has ears to hear should hear.”10 And his disciples came near and said to him, “Why do you speak in parables with them?” 11 Now he answered and said to them, “To you it is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of heaven, but it is not given to them. 12 For to him who has, it will be given to him and he will have abundance, and to him who has not, even that which he has will be taken from him. 13 Because of this, I speak with them in parables, because they see and do not see, and they hear and do not hear and they do not understand. 14 And the prophecy of Eshaya is fulfilled in them, who said: Hearing you will hear and you will not understand and seeing you will see and you will not know. 15 For the heart of this people has been hardened and with their Page 14 of 276
1

ears they are hard of hearing and their eyes are closed, lest they would see with their eyes and would hear with their ears and would understand with their heart and would repent and I [would] heal them. 16 But blessed are your eyes, because they see and your ears, because they hear. 17 For truly I say to you, many prophets and just [men] have longed to see what you see and they did not see [them], and to hear what you hear and they did not hear [them]. 18 But hear the parable of the seed. 19 [From] everyone who hears the message of the kingdom and does not understand, the Evil [one] comes and grabs the word that was sown in his heart. This is that which was sown by the side of the road. 20 And that which was sown on rocky ground is he who hears the message and immediately receives it with joy. 21 Yet he has no root in him, but is transient. And when trouble or persecution comes because of the word, he is offended quickly. 22 Now that which was sown among thorns is he who hears the word and the care of this world and the deception of riches choke the word and it becomes without fruit. 23 But that which was sown on good earth is he who hears my word and understands [it] and produces fruit and yields some a hundred and some sixty and some thirty[fold].” 24 He spoke another parable to them and he said, “The kingdom of heaven is compared to a man who sowed good seed in his field. 25 And when the people were asleep, his enemy came and sowed weeds in the middle of the wheat and [then] left. 26 And when the plant sprouted and bore fruit, then the weeds also were seen. 27 And the servants of the master [of] the house came near and said to him, “Our lord, behold, did you not sow good seed in your field? From where are the weeds in it?” 28 But he said to them, “A man [who is] an enemy did this.” His servants said to him, “Do you want us to go to pick them out?” 29 But he said to them, “[No], lest while you are picking out the weeds, you will uproot the wheat with them also.” 30 Allow both to grow together until the harvest. And in the time of harvest, I will say to the reapers, “Pick out the weeds first and bind them [into] bundles to be burned.” But gather the wheat into my granaries.”“ 31 He spoke another parable to them. And he said, “The kingdom of heaven is compared to a grain of mustard seed that a man took [and] sowed in his field. 32 And this [seed] is smaller than all the small seeds, but when it grows, it is greater than all the small herbs and it becomes a tree, so that a bird of heaven will come [and] nest in its branches.” 33 He spoke another parable to them. “The kingdom of heaven is compared to leaven that a woman took [and] hid in three measures of flour, until all of it was leavened.” 34 All these [things] Yeshue spoke in illustrations to the crowds. And without illustrations he did not speak with them, 35 so that it would be fulfilled what was spoken by way of the prophet, who said: I will open my mouth with parables and I will bring forth hidden [things] that were from before the foundations of the world. 36 Then Yeshue left the crowds and came to the house and his disciples came near to him and said to him, “Explain to us that parable of the weeds and of the field.” 37 And he answered and said to them, “He who sowed the good seed is the Son of Man. 38 And the field is the age and the good seed are the sons of the kingdom. And the weeds are the sons of the Evil [one]. 39 And the enemy who sowed them is Satan. And the harvest is the culmination of the age and the reapers [are] the angels. 40 As therefore the weeds are picked out and burned in the fire, so it will be in the culmination of this age. 41 The Son of Man will send his angels and they will pick out from his kingdom all the stumbling blocks and all the servants of wickedness 42 and they will throw them into the furnace of fire. In that place will be crying and gnashing of teeth. 43 Then the just [ones] will shine as the sun in the kingdom of their Father. He who has ears to hear should hear. 44 Again, the kingdom of heaven is compared to a treasure that is hidden in a field that a man found and hid. And from his joy, he went [and] sold everything he had and bought that field. 45 Again, the kingdom of heaven is compared to a merchant who was seeking expensive pearls. 46 And when he found a certain precious pearl, he went [and] sold everything Page 15 of 276

that he had and bought it. 47 Again, the kingdom of heaven is compared to a net that was thrown into the sea and gathered together [fish] of every kind. 48 And when it was full, they pulled it out to the shore of the sea and sat down [and] sorted [it]. And the good [fish] they placed in containers and the bad they threw away. 49 So it will be in the culmination of the age. The angels will go out and separate the evil [ones] from among the just [ones] 50 and they will throw them into the furnace of fire. In that place will be crying and gnashing of teeth. 51 Yeshue said to them, “Do you understand all these [things]?” They said to him, “Yes, our Lord.” 52 He said to them, “Because of this, every Saphra who is instructed for the kingdom of heaven is compared to a man [who is] a master [of] a house, who brings out from his treasures the new and old.” 53 And it happened that when Yeshue completed these parables, he went away from there. 54 And he came to his [own] city and was teaching them in their synagogues, so that they marveled and were saying, “From where [does] this wisdom and [these] miracles [come] to this [man]? 55 Is not this the son of the carpenter? Is not his mother called Maryam and his brothers, Yaquv and Yusi and Shimon and Yehudah? 56 And all his sisters, behold, are they not with us? So from where [do] all these [things] [come] to this [man]?” 57 And they were offended by him. And Yeshue said to them, “There is no prophet who is despised, except in his [own] city and in his [own] house.” 58 And he did not do many miracles there because of their unbelief.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 14
Now in that time, Herod the Tetrarch heard a report about Yeshue. 2 And he said to his servants, “This is Yukhanan the Immerser. He has risen from the dead. Because of this, miracles are done by him.” 3 For Herod had arrested Yukhanan and bound him and threw him into prison because of Herodias, the wife of his brother Philip. 4 For Yukhanan was saying to him, “It is unlawful that she be a wife to you.” 5 And he was desiring to kill him, but he was afraid of the people, who were regarding him as a prophet. 6 Now when the birthday of Herod occurred, the daughter of Herodias danced before the guests and she pleased Herod. 7 Because of this, with an oath he swore to her that he would give her anything that she asked. 8 And because she was instructed by her mother, she said, “Give me here on a plate the head of Yukhanan the Immerser.” 9 And it saddened the king, but because of the oath and the guests, he commanded that it be given to her.10 And he sent [and] cut off the head of Yukhanan [in] the prison. 11 And he brought his head on a plate and it was given to the girl and she brought it to her mother. 12 And his disciples came near, took up his corpse, buried [it] and came [and] made [his death] known to Yeshue. 13 Now when Yeshue heard [this], he went away from there in a ship to a desert place alone. And when the crowds heard [this], they followed him by dry land from the cities. 14 And Yeshue went out [and] saw the large crowds. And he had compassion on them and he healed their diseases. 15 Now when it was evening, his disciples came near to him and said to him, “[This] is a desert place and the time has passed. Dismiss the crowds of people that they may go on to the villages and buy food for themselves.” 16 But he said to them, “It is not necessary for them to leave. Give them [food] to eat.” 17 But they said to him, “We have nothing here, except five [loaves of] bread and two fish.” 18 Yeshue said to them, “Bring them here to me.” 19 And he commanded the crowds to recline on the ground and he lifted up those five [loaves of] bread and two fish and looked into heaven and blessed and broke [them] and gave [them] to his disciples and the disciples set [the food] before the crowds. 20 And all of them ate and were satisfied. And Page 16 of 276
1

they took up the rest of the fragments, twelve baskets full. 21 Now those men who ate were five thousand, besides women and children. 22 And immediately he urged his disciples to board the ship and to go before him to the opposite side, while he dismissed the crowds. 23 And when he dismissed the crowds, he went up to a mountain alone to pray. And when it became dark, he was alone there. 24 And the ship was many furlongs away from land, being tossed greatly by the waves, for the wind was against it. 25 Now in the fourth watch of the night, Yeshue came toward them, walking on the water. 26 And his disciples saw him that he was walking on the water. And they were troubled and were saying, “It is a false vision.” And they cried out because of their fear. 27 But Yeshue immediately spoke with them and said, “Be encouraged, it is I. Do not be afraid.” 28 And Kipha answered and said to him, “My Lord, if it is you, command me to come to you on the water.” 29 And Yeshue said to him, “Come.” And Kipha got down from the ship and walked on the water to go to Yeshue. 30 And when he saw the wind was rough, he feared and began to sink. And he raised his voice and said, “My Lord, save me.” 31 And immediately our Lord reached out his hand and grasped him and said to him, “Little of faith, why did you doubt?” 32 And when they boarded the ship, the wind quieted. 33 And those who were in the ship came [and] worshipped him and said, “Truly you [are] the Son of Alaha.” 34 And they traveled on and came to the land of Genesar. 35 And the men of that place knew him and they sent [word] to all the villages of the surrounding area. And all those who were very sick came near to him. 36 And they were begging him that they might touch [him], even if only the outer edge of his clothing. And those who touched were healed.

Then the Perishye and Saphrey, who were from Urishlem, came near to Yeshue and said, “Why do your disciples cross against the tradition of the elders and do not wash their hands when they eat bread?” 3 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Why do you also cross against the commandment of Alaha because of your tradition? 4 For Alaha said: Honor your father and your mother and he who reviles his father and his mother should indeed be put to death. 5 But you say, “Anyone who will say to a father or to a mother, [Let] whatever you have gained by me [be] my offering, and [then] he does not [need to] honor his father or his mother.” 6 And you nullify the word of Alaha because of your tradition. 7 Hypocrites! Well did Eshaya prophesy concerning you and say: 8 This people honors me with their lips, but their heart is very far from me. 9 And vainly they reverence me, while teaching the doctrines of the commandments of men.”10 And he cried out to the crowds and said to them, “Hear and understand. 11 It is not what enters the mouth [that] corrupts a man, but what comes out of the mouth, that corrupts a man.” 12 Then his disciples came near and said to him, “Do you know that the Perishye who heard this saying were offended?” 13 Now he answered and said to them, “Every plant that my Father who is in heaven has not planted will be uprooted. 14 Leave them alone. They are blind leaders of the blind. And if the blind lead the blind, both will fall into a pit.” 15 And Shimon Kipha answered and said to him, “My Lord, explain to us this parable.” 16 And he said to them, “Until now do you also not understand? 17 Do you not know that whatever enters the mouth goes to the stomach and from there is cast out [of the body] by a bowel movement? 18 But what goes out of the mouth goes out of the heart and becomes corrupting to the man. 19 For from the heart go out evil thoughts: adultery, murder, fornication, theft, false witness, [and] blasphemy. 20

These are [the things] that corrupt a man. But if a man eats while his hands are not washed, he is not corrupted.” 21 And Yeshue went out from there and came to the border of Tsur and Tsaidan. 22 And behold, a woman of Canaan from those borders came out crying and saying, “Have compassion on me, my Lord, Son of Dawid. My daughter is seriously oppressed by a demon.” 23 But he did not answer her a word. And his disciples came near [and] begged him and said, “Send her away, because she cries after us.” 24 But he answered and said to them, “I have not been sent, except to the sheep that have strayed from the house of Israyel.” 25 And she came [and] worshipped him. And she said, “My Lord, help me.” 26 He said to her, “It is not proper to take the bread of the children and to throw [it] to the dogs.” 27 Now she said, “Yes, my Lord, [but] even the dogs eat from the crumbs that fall from the tables of their lords and live.” 28 Then Yeshue said to her, “Oh woman, great is your faith. Let it be to you as you desire.” And her daughter was healed at that moment. 29 And Yeshue went away from there and came to the shore of the Sea of Galila. And he climbed a mountain and sat there. 30 And large crowds came near to him in which there were the lame and blind and dumb and the maimed and many others. And they laid them at the feet of Yeshue and he healed them, 31 so that those crowds were amazed who saw the dumb who spoke and the maimed who were made whole and the lame who walked and the blind who saw. And they praised the Alaha of Israyel. 32 But Yeshue called to his disciples and said to them, “I have compassion for this crowd, because, behold, three days they have stayed with me and they do not have anything to eat. And I do not want to send them away fasting, so that they will not lose strength during the journey.” 33 His disciples were saying to him, “Where is there bread for us in the desert to satisfy this whole crowd?” 34 Yeshue said to them, “How many [loaves of] bread do you have?” They said to him, “Seven and a few small fish.” 35 And he commanded the crowds to recline on the ground. 36 And he took those seven [loaves of] bread and the fish and gave thanks and broke [them] into pieces and gave [them] to his disciples and the disciples gave [them] to the crowds. 37 And all of them ate and were satisfied. And they took up the rest of the fragments, seven baskets full. 38 Now those who ate were four thousand men, besides women and children. 39 And when he sent away the crowds, he boarded a ship and came to the border of Maghdu.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 16
And the Perishye and Zaduqaye came near, tempting him and asking him to show them a sign from heaven. 2 But he answered and said to them, “When it becomes evening, you say, “It [will be] fair, for the sky is red.” 3 And in the morning you say, “Today it [will be] stormy for the sky is a gloomy red.” Hypocrites! You know [how] to investigate the appearance of the sky, [but] you do not know [how] to discern the signs of this time. 4 An evil and adulterous generation seeks for a sign and a sign is not given to it, except the sign of Yaunan the prophet.” And he left them and went away. 5 And when his disciples came to the other side, they had forgotten to take bread with them. 6 Now he said to them, “Watch. Beware of the leaven of the Perishye and the Zaduqaye.” 7 And they were reasoning among themselves and said that they had not taken bread. 8 But Yeshue knew and said to them, “What are you thinking to yourselves, little of faith, that [it is because] you did not bring bread? 9 Do you not yet understand? Do you not remember those five [loaves of] bread for the five thousand and how many baskets you took up? 10 Nor those seven [loaves of] bread for the four thousand and how many baskets you took up? 11 How do you Page 18 of 276
1

not understand that it was not about bread [that] I spoke to you, but that you should beware of the leaven of the Perishye and of the Zaduqaye?” 12 Then they understood that he did not say that they should beware of the leaven of bread, but of the doctrine of the Perishye and of the Zaduqaye. 13 And when Yeshue came to the region of Caesarea of Philippi, he was asking his disciples and said, “What are men saying about me, that I am the Son of Man?” 14 And they said, “Some say [that you are] Yukhanan the Immerser, but others [that you are] Eliya and others Eramiya or one of the prophets.” 15 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” 16 Shimon Kipha answered and said, “You are Meshikha, the Son of the living Alaha.” 17 Yeshue answered and said to him, “You are blessed, Shimon, Bar-Yauna, because flesh and blood did not reveal [this] to you, but my Father who is in heaven. 18 Also I say to you, you are a rock and on this rock I will build my church and the gates of Sheol will not subdue it. 19 To you I will give the keys of the kingdom of heaven and anything that you bind on earth will be bound in heaven. And that which you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven.” 20 Then he commanded his disciples that they should not tell anyone that he was Meshikha. 21 And from then [on], Yeshue began to show his disciples that he would go to Urishlem and suffer much from the elders and from the chief priests and Saphrey and [that] he would be killed and on the third day would rise up. 22 Yet Kipha took him and began to berate him. And he said, “Forbid it to you, my Lord, that this [thing] should happen to you.” 23 But he turned and said to Kipha, “Go behind me, Satan! You are a stumbling block to me, because you do not think [the things] of Alaha, but of men.” 24 Then Yeshue said to his disciples, “He who wants to follow me should deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 25 For he who wants to save his life will lose it. And he who will lose his life because of me will find it. 26 For what does a man profit if he gains the whole world and loses his life? Or what [thing of] exchange will a man give for his life? 27 For the Son of Man is about to come in the glory of his Father with his holy angels. And then he will reward each man according to his works. 28 Truly I say to you, there are men who are standing here who will not taste death until they will see the Son of Man come in his kingdom.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 17
And after six days, Yeshue led Kipha and Yaquv and Yukhanan his brother and took them up to a high mountain alone. 2 And Yeshue was transformed before them and his face was bright like the sun. And his clothes became white like light. 3 And [there] appeared to them Mushe and Eliya speaking with him. 4 And Kipha answered and said to Yeshue, “My Lord, it is good for us that we were here. And if you want, we will make here three booths, one for you and one for Mushe and one for Eliya.” 5 And while he was speaking, behold, a bright cloud overshadowed them. And a voice came from the cloud that said, “This is my beloved Son in whom I am pleased. Hear him.” 6 And when the disciples heard [this], they fell on their faces and were very afraid. 7 And Yeshue came near to them and touched them and said, “Stand up. Do not be afraid.” 8 And they raised their eyes and did not see anyone, except Yeshue alone. 9 And while they were coming down from the mountain, Yeshue commanded them and said to them, “Do not speak [about] this vision in the presence of anyone until the Son of Man rises from the dead.”10 And his disciples asked him and said to him, “Why then do the Saphrey say that Eliya ought to come first?” 11 Yeshue answered and said, “Eliya comes first to fulfill everything. 12 But I say to you, behold, Eliya has come and they did not know him and they did with him whatever they Page 19 of 276
1

desired. So also the Son of Man is about to suffer from them.” 13 Then the disciples understood that he spoke to them about Yukhanan the Immerser. 14 And when they came to the crowd, a man came near to him and bowed down on his knees 15 and said to him, “My Lord, have compassion on me. My son is one who is insane and he is seriously afflicted, for many times he has fallen into the fire and many times in the water. 16 And I brought him to your disciples and they were not able to heal him.” 17 Yeshue answered and said, “Oh faithless and perverted generation! How long must I be with you and how long must I endure you? Bring him here to me.” 18 And Yeshue rebuked it and the demon went out of him and the child was healed at that moment. 19 Then the disciples came near to Yeshue alone and said to him, “Why were we not able to heal him?” 20 Yeshue said to them, “Because of your unbelief. For truly I say to you, if you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you can say to this mountain, “Move from here,” and it will move and nothing will overcome you. 21 But this kind does not go out, except by fasting and by prayer.” 22 Now while they were traveling in Galila, Yeshue said to them, “The Son of Man is about to be betrayed into the hands of men. 23 And they will kill him and on the third day, he will rise up.” And [the saying] saddened them very much. 24 And when they came to Kepharnakhum, those who were receiving the two drachmas for the poll tax came near to Kipha. And they said to him, “Does not your master give his two drachmas?” 25 He said to them, “Yes.” And when Kipha entered the house, Yeshue anticipated him and said to him, “What does it appear to you, Shimon? The kings of the earth, from whom do they receive tribute and the poll tax, from their children or from strangers?” 26 Shimon said to him, “From strangers.” Yeshue said to him, “Then the children are free. 27 But so that [this] should not offend them, go to the sea and cast a fishhook. And the first fish that comes up, open its mouth and you will find a stater. Take that and give [it] for me and for you.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 18
At that time, the disciples came near to Yeshue and said, “Who is indeed great in the kingdom of heaven?” 2 And Yeshue called a child and set him among them 3 and said, “Truly I say to you, if you do not change and become like children, you will not enter into the kingdom of heaven. 4 Therefore, he who humbles himself like this child will be great in the kingdom of heaven. 5 And he who receives [one] like this child in my name receives me. 6 And anyone who causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him that the millstone of a donkey would be hung on his neck and he be sunk in the depths of the sea. 7 Woe to the world because of offenses! For it is necessary that offenses should come. But woe to the man by whose hand the offenses come! 8 Now if your hand or your foot causes you to stumble, cut it off and throw it away from you. It is better for you to enter life while you are lame or while maimed, and not, while you have two hands or two feet, to fall into everlasting fire. 9 And if your eye causes you to stumble, tear it out and throw it away from you. It is better for you that you enter life with one eye and not, while you have two eyes, to fall into the Gehenna of fire.10 See, you should not despise one of these little ones, for I say to you, their angels that are in heaven always see the face of my Father who is in heaven. 11 For the Son of Man has come to make alive that which was perishing. 12 What does it appear to you? If a man had one hundred sheep and one of them strayed, does he not leave the ninety-nine on the mountain and go [and] seek that which has strayed? 13 And if he finds it, truly I say to you, he rejoices at it more than the ninety-nine Page 20 of 276
1

that did not stray. 14 Likewise, it is not the will before your Father who is in heaven that one of these little ones should perish. 15 Now if your brother offends you, go [and] reprove him between you and him alone. If he hears you, you have gained your brother. 16 And if he does not hear you, take with you one or two [others] that, At the mouth of two or three witnesses every word will be established. 17 Now if he will not hear them also, tell the church. And if he will not hear the church also, he will be to you like a tax collector and like a heathen. 18 And truly I say to you, anything that you bind on earth will be bound in heaven. And that which you loose on earth will be loosed in heaven. 19 Again I say to you, if two of you agree on earth concerning every matter that they will ask, they will have [an answer] from the presence of my Father who is in heaven. 20 For where two or three are gathered in my name, there I am among them.” 21 Then Kipha came near to him and said, “My Lord, if my brother offends me, how many times should I forgive him? Up to seven times?” 22 Yeshue said to him, “I do not say to you up to seven [times], but up to seventy times, by sevens. 23 Because of this, the kingdom of heaven is compared to a certain king, who wanted to take an accounting of his servants. 24 And when he began to take [the accounting], they brought to him one who owed ten thousand talents. 25 And when he had no [way] to repay, his lord commanded that he should be sold and his wife and his children and everything that was his and [that] he should repay [the debt]. 26 And the servant fell down [and] worshipped him and said, “My lord, be patient with me and I will repay everything to you.” 27 And the lord of that servant had compassion and sent him away and forgave him his debt. 28 Now that servant went out and found one of his fellow-servants, who owed him one hundred denarii, and he grabbed him and was choking him, and said to him, “Give me that which you owe me.” 29 And that [man], his fellow-servant, fell at his feet, begged him and said to him, “Be patient with me and I will repay you.” 30 And he did not want [to], but went [and] threw him into prison, until he would pay him what he owed him. 31 Now when their fellow-servants saw what had happened, it saddened them very much. And they came [and] made known to their lord all that happened. 32 Then his lord called him and said to that evil servant, “I forgave you all of the debt because you begged me. 33 Was it not proper for you also to have mercy toward your fellow-servant, as I had mercy on you?” 34 And his lord was angry and delivered him to the torturers, until he would repay everything that he owed him. 35 Likewise my Father who is in heaven will do to you, unless you each forgive his brother his offense from your heart.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 19
And it happened that when Yeshue finished these words, he started from Galila and came to the border of Yehuda on the other side of Yurdinan. 2 And large crowds followed him and he healed them there. 3 And the Perishye came near to him and were tempting him and saying, “Is it lawful for a man to put away his wife on any occasion?” 4 Now he answered and said to them, “Have you not read that he who made [them] from the beginning made them male and female?” 5 And he said, “Because of this, a man should leave his father and his mother and should cleave to his wife and the two of them will become one flesh. 6 Therefore, they will not be two, but rather, one flesh. Therefore, that which Alaha has united, man should not separate.” 7 They said to him, “Why then did Mushe command to give a writing of divorce and to dismiss her?” 8 He said to them, “Mushe, because of the hardness of your heart, allowed you to dismiss your wives. But previously it was not so. 9 But I say to you, he who forsakes his wife, except [for] Page 21 of 276
1

adultery, and takes another, commits adultery. And he who takes a forsaken woman commits adultery.”10 His disciples said to him, “If such is the case between husband and wife, it is not advantageous to take a wife.” 11 But he said to them, “Not every man is fit for this arrangement, except he to whom it is given. 12 For there are believers who were born so from the womb of their mother and there are believers who became believers by men and there are believers who made themselves believers for the sake of the kingdom of heaven. He who is able to understand should understand.” 13 Then children came near to him that he would lay his hand on them and pray. And his disciples berated them. 14 But Yeshue said to them, “Allow the children [to] come to me and do not hinder them. For of those who are like these is the kingdom of heaven.” 15 And he laid his hand on them and went away from there. 16 And a certain [man] came [and] approached and said to him, “Good teacher, what good [thing] should I do that I might have eternal life?” 17 Now he said to him, “Why do you call me good? There is no good [one], except one, Alaha. Now if you want to enter life, keep the commandments.” 18 He said to him, “Which [ones]?” And Yeshue said to him, “Do not kill and do not commit adultery and do not steal and do not give false testimony. 19 And honor your father and your mother and love your neighbor as yourself.” 20 That young man said to him, “All these [things] I have kept from my youth. What do I lack?” 21 Yeshue said to him, “If you want to be mature, go, sell your possessions and give [them] to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven and follow me.” 22 And that young man heard this word and went away, feeling sorry for himself, for he had many possessions. 23 Now Yeshue said to his disciples, “Truly I say to you, it is difficult for a rich man to enter into the kingdom of heaven. 24 And again I say to you, it is easier for a rope to enter into the eye of a needle than [for] a rich man to enter into the kingdom of Alaha.” 25 And when the disciples heard [him], they were very amazed and said, “Who is indeed able to [gain] life?” 26 Yeshue looked at them and said to them, “With men, this is not possible, but with Alaha everything is possible.” 27 Then answered Kipha and said to him, “Behold, we have left everything and have followed you. What indeed will we have?” 28 Yeshue said to them, “Truly I say you, you who have followed me, when the Son of Man sits on the throne of his glory in the new age, you will also sit on twelve seats of state. And you will judge the twelve tribes of Israyel. 29 And everyone who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields on account of my name will receive one hundred[fold] and will inherit eternal life. 30 But many [are] first, who will be last, and [many are] last, [who will be] first.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 20
For the kingdom of heaven is compared to a man, the lord of a house, who went out in the morning to hire laborers for his vineyard. 2 And he made an agreement with the laborers for a denarius per day. And he sent them to his vineyard. 3 And he went out in the third hour and saw others who were standing in the marketplace and were idle. 4 And he said to them, “Go also to the vineyard and I will give to you whatever is right.” 5 And they went away. And again he came out in the sixth and in the ninth hour and did the same. 6 And toward the eleventh hour, he went out and found others who were standing and were idle. And he said to them, “Why are you standing all day and are idle?” 7 They said to him, “No man has hired us.” He said to them, “Go also to the vineyard and you will receive whatever is right.” 8 Now when it was evening, the lord of the vineyard said to his steward, “Call the laborers and give them their wage and begin from Page 22 of 276
1

the last and [proceed] up to the first.” 9 And those of the eleventh hour came [and] each received a denarius.10 And when the first came, they thought that they would receive more. And they each received a denarius also. 11 And when they received [it], they murmured against the lord of the house. 12 And they said, “These last [ones] worked one hour and you made them equal with us who bore the burden of the day and its heat.” 13 Now he answered and said to one of them, “My friend, I did not wrong you. Did you not agree with me for a denarius? 14 Take your own and go. But I desire to give to this last [one] as to you. 15 Or is it not lawful for me to do with my own what I want? Or is your eye evil because I am good? 16 So the last will be first and the first last. For many are called and few chosen.” 17 And Yeshue was about to go up to Urishlem. And he took [aside] his twelve disciples privately on the journey and said to them, 18 “Behold, we are going up to Urishlem and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and to the Saphrey and they will condemn him to death. 19 And they will deliver him to the Gentiles and they will mock him and they will beat him and they will crucify him and on the third day, he will rise up.” 20 Then the mother of the sons of Zabedai came to him, she and her sons. And she worshipped him and was asking him something. 21 Now he said to her, “What do you want?” She said to him, “Say that these, my two sons, will sit one on your right and one on your left in your kingdom.” 22 Yeshue answered and said, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I am about to drink or to be immersed [with] the immersion [with] which I [will be] immersed?” They said to him, “We are able.” 23 He said to them, “You will drink my cup and be immersed [with] the immersion [with] which I [will be] immersed. But that you should sit at my right and at my left is not mine to give, except to those [for] whom it is prepared by my Father.” 24 And when the ten heard [of this], they were angry at those two brothers. 25 And Yeshue called them and said to them, “You know that the rulers of the Gentiles are their lords and their nobles are in authority over them. 26 It should not be so among you. But rather, whoever among you wants to be great should be a minister to you. 27 And whoever among you wants to be first should be a servant to you, 28 even as the Son of Man did not come to be served, but to serve and to give himself [as] a payment on behalf of many.” 29 And when Yeshue went out of Irikhu, a large crowd was following him. 30 And behold, two blind men were sitting on the side of the road. And when they heard that Yeshue passed by, they gave a cry and said, “Have compassion on us, my Lord, Son of Dawid.” 31 But the crowds were admonishing them to be quiet. And they raised their voice more and said, “Our Lord, have compassion on us, Son of Dawid.” 32 And Yeshue stopped and called them and said, “What do you want me to do for you?” 33 They said to him, “Our Lord, that our eyes be opened.” 34 And Yeshue had compassion on them and touched their eyes and immediately their eyes were opened and they followed him.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 21
And when he came near to Urishlem and came to Beth-Pageh by the side of the Mount of Olives, Yeshue sent two of his disciples 2 and said to them, “Go to this village that is opposite you and immediately you will find a donkey that is tied and a colt with her. Loose [them and] bring [them] to me. 3 And if anyone says anything to you, say to him that they are needed for our Lord. And immediately he will send them here.” 4 Now all this which happened [was] so that what was spoken by way of the prophet would be fulfilled, who said: 5 Say to the daughter of Tsehyun, Behold, your king comes to you meek and mounted on a donkey and on a colt, the foal Page 23 of 276
1

of a donkey. 6 And the disciples went and did as Yeshue had commanded them. 7 And they brought the donkey and the colt and placed their garments on the colt and Yeshue mounted it. 8 And a large number of crowds were spreading out their clothes in the road. And others were cutting branches from the trees and throwing [them] on the road. 9 And the crowds, who were going before him and were following him, were crying out and saying: Hosanna to the son of Dawid. Blessed is he who comes in the name of Marya. Hosanna in the highest!10 And when he entered Urishlem, the entire city was in turmoil. And they were saying, “Who is this [man]?” 11 And the crowds were saying, “This is Yeshue, the prophet, who is from Natsrath of Galila.” 12 And Yeshue entered the temple of Alaha and threw out all who were buying and selling in the temple. And he overturned the tables of the moneychangers and the chairs of those who were selling doves. 13 And he said to them, “It is written: My house will be called a house of prayer. But you have made it a den of thieves.” 14 And the blind and lame came near to him in the temple and he healed them. 15 Now when the chief priests and the Perishye saw the wonders that he did and the children who were crying out in the temple and saying, “Hosanna to the Son of Dawid,” they were displeased. 16 And they said to him, “Do you hear what these are saying?” Yeshue said to them, “Yes. Have you never read: From the mouth of children and infants you have fashioned praise?” 17 And he left them and went away outside of the city to Beth-Naiya and lodged there. 18 Now in the morning when he returned to the city, he was hungry. 19 And he saw a certain fig tree by the road and came to it. And he did not find anything on it, except leaves only. And he said to it, “There will not be fruit on you again forever.” And immediately that fig tree dried up. 20 And the disciples saw and marveled and said, “How quickly the fig tree dried up!” 21 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, if you have faith and do not doubt, not only will you do this [miracle] of the fig, but even if you say to this mountain, “Be removed and fall into the sea,” it will happen. 22 And everything that you ask for in prayer and believe, you will receive.” 23 And when Yeshue came to the temple, the chief priests and the elders of the people came near to him while he was teaching and said to him, “By what authority do you do these [things]? And who gave you this authority?” 24 Yeshue answered and said to them, “I will ask you also a certain question and if you answer me, I will also tell you by what authority I do these [things]. 25 The immersion of Yukhanan, from where is it? Is it from heaven or from men?” Now they were reasoning among themselves and said, “If we say from heaven, he will say to us, “Why did you not believe him?” 26 And [if] we say from men, we are afraid of the crowd, for all of them regarded Yukhanan as a prophet.” 27 They answered and said to him, “We do not know.” Yeshue said to them, “Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these [things]. 28 But what does it seem to you? A certain man had two sons. And he came near to the first and said to him, “My son, go today [and] work in the vineyard.” 29 Now he answered and said, “I do not want to.” But later, he regretted [it] and went. 30 And he came near to the other and said to him the same. Now he answered and said, “I am [going], my lord,” and did not go. 31 Which of these two did the will of his father?” They said to him, “That first [son].” Yeshue said to them, “Truly I say to you, tax collectors and harlots will precede you in the kingdom of Alaha. 32 For Yukhanan came to you in the way of uprightness and you did not believe him. But the tax collectors and harlots believed him. But not even when you saw [him], did you finally repent that you might believe in him. 33 Hear another parable. A certain man was a lord of a house. And he planted a vineyard. And he set a fence around it and dug a winepress in it. And he built a tower in it and handed it over to laborers and went on a journey. 34 Now when the time of harvest arrived, he sent his servants to the laborers that they might send [some] of the fruit of his vineyard to him. 35 Yet the laborers grabbed his servants and some they beat and some they stoned and some they killed. 36 Page 24 of 276

And again he sent other servants, more than the first, and they did the same to them. 37 And lastly, he sent them his son, saying, “Perhaps they will respect my son.” 38 But the laborers, when they saw the son, said among themselves, “This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and obtain his inheritance.” 39 And they grabbed [him and] took him outside of the vineyard and killed him. 40 When, therefore, the lord of the vineyard comes, what should he do to those laborers?” 41 They said to him, “He will utterly destroy them and he will hand over the vineyard to other laborers, those who will give him the fruit in its season.” 42 Yeshue said to them, “Have you never read in the scripture of the stone that the builders rejected? It has become the head of the corner. This [stone] came from the presence of Marya and it is a wonder in our eyes. 43 Because of this, I say to you, the kingdom of Alaha will be taken away from you and be given to a people who bear fruit. 44 And whoever falls on this stone will be bruised, and whomever it falls on, it will blow him away [as chaff].” 45 And when the chief priests and Perishye heard his parables, they knew that he spoke against them. 46 And they sought to arrest him, yet they were afraid of the crowd, because they regarded him as a prophet.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 22
And Yeshue answered again in parables and said, 2 “The kingdom of heaven is compared to a certain king who prepared a wedding feast for his son. 3 And he sent his servants to call the invited [ones] to the wedding feast and they did not want to come. 4 Again he sent other servants and told [them] to say to the invited [ones], “Behold, my feast is prepared and my oxen and my fat [ones] are killed and everything is ready. Come to the wedding feast.” 5 But they scorned [the servants] and went away, one to his field and another to his business. 6 Now the rest grabbed his servants and disgraced and killed [them]. 7 Now when the king heard [this], he was angry and sent his armies [and] destroyed those murderers and burned their city. 8 Then he said to his servants, “The wedding feast is prepared and those who were invited were not worthy. 9 Go, therefore, to the limits of the roads and call whomever you find to the wedding feast.”10 And those servants went out to the roads and gathered all whom they found, bad and good, and the banquet house was filled with guests. 11 And the king entered to see the guests. And he saw there a man who was not wearing wedding clothes. 12 And he said to him, “My friend, how did you enter this place, having no wedding garments?” And he was speechless. 13 Then said the king to the servers, “Bind his hands and his feet and throw him into the outer darkness. Crying and gnashing of teeth will be there. 14 For many are called, yet few chosen.” 15 Then the Perishye went away [and] took counsel how they might trap him with a question. 16 And they sent him their disciples with the Herodians and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you are true and you teach the way of Alaha with truthfulness and you are not moved by anyone, for you are not a respecter of persons. 17 Tell us, therefore, how does it seem to you? Is it lawful to give the poll tax to Caesar or not?” 18 Now Yeshue knew their evil [counsel] and said, “Why do you tempt me? Hypocrites! 19 Show me the denarius of the poll tax.” And they brought to him a denarius. 20 And Yeshue said to them, “Whose is this image and inscription?” 21 They said, “Caesar’s.” He said to them, “Give, therefore, Caesar’s to Caesar and Alaha’s to Alaha.” 22 And when they heard [this], they were amazed and they left him and went away. 23 On the same day, the Zaduqaye came near and said to him, “There is no resurrection of the dead.” And they asked him 24 and said to him, “Teacher, Mushe said to us, If a man dies while he has no sons, his brother should take his wife Page 25 of 276
1

and raise up seed for his brother. 25 Now there were seven brothers with us. The first took a wife and died and since he had no sons, he left his wife to his brother. 26 Likewise also, the second and also the third, even up to the seventh. 27 Now finally, all of them died [and] the woman also. 28 In the resurrection, therefore, to which of those seven [brothers] will she be a wife? For all of them married her.” 29 Yeshue answered and said to them, “You err, because you do not know the scriptures nor the power of Alaha. 30 For in the resurrection of the dead, [men] do not marry women, nor are women [given] to husbands, but they are as the angels of Alaha in heaven. 31 Now concerning the resurrection of the dead, have you not read that which was spoken to you by Alaha, who said: 32 I am the Alaha of Avraham, the Alaha of Iskhaq, [and] the Alaha of Yaquv. And he is not the Alaha of the dead, but of the living.” 33 And when the crowds heard [this], they were amazed by his teaching. 34 Now when the Perishye heard that he had silenced the Zaduqaye, they assembled together. 35 And one of them who knew the Namusa asked, tempting him, 36 “Teacher, what commandment is great in the Namusa?” 37 And Yeshue said to him, “You should love Marya your Alaha with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind. 38 This is the great and first commandment. 39 And the second is like it: You should love your neighbor as yourself. 40 On these two commandments suspend the Torah and the prophets.” 41 Now while the Perishye were assembled, Yeshue asked them 42 and said, “What do you say about Meshikha? Whose son is he?” They said to him, “The Son of Dawid.” 43 He said to them, “Yet how does Dawid spiritually call him Marya? For he said: 44 Marya said to my Lord, sit at my right until I place your enemies under your feet. 45 Therefore, if Dawid called him “Marya,” how is he his son?” 46 And no man was able to give him an answer. And no man dared to question him again from that day [on].

MATTHEW CHAPTER 23
Then Yeshue talked with the crowds and with his disciples. 2 And he said to them, “The Saphrey and the Perishye sit on the seat of Mushe. 3 Everything, therefore, that they say that you should keep, keep and do. But you should not do according to their deeds. For they speak and do not act. 4 And they bind heavy burdens and place [them] on the shoulders of men, but do not want to touch them with their finger[s]. 5 And they do all of their deeds to be seen by men. For they broaden their phylacteries and lengthen the fringes of their mantles. 6 And they love the chief places at festivals and the chief seats in the synagogues 7 and a greeting in the marketplaces and that they are called Rabbi by men. 8 But you should not be called Rabbi. For one is your Rabbi and all of you are brothers. 9 And do not call yourselves father on earth. For one is your Father, who is in heaven.10 And you should not be called leaders, because one is your leader, Meshikha. 11 But he who is great among you should be a minister to you. 12 For he who elevates himself will be humbled and he who humbles himself will be elevated. 13 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you consume the houses of widows with the occasion that you would lengthen your prayers. Because of this, you will receive greater judgment. 14 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you have held the kingdom of heaven closed before men. For you are not entering and those who would enter, you do not allow to enter. 15 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you travel over sea and land to make one convert. And when he has become [a convert], you make him the son of Gehenna more than you. 16 Woe to you, blind guides! Because you say that whoever swears by the temple, it is Page 26 of 276
1

nothing. But he who swears by the gold that is in the temple is guilty. 17 [You are] fools and blind! For what is greater, the gold or the temple? Which sanctifies, the gold? 18 And [you say], whoever swears by the altar, it is nothing. But he who swears by the offering that is on it is guilty. 19 [You are] fools and blind! What is greater, the offering or the altar that is sanctified by the offering? 20 Therefore, he who swears by the altar swears by it and by everything that is on it. 21 And he who swears by the temple swears by it and by him who dwells in it. 22 And he who swears by heaven swears by the throne of Alaha and by him who sits on it. 23 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you tithe mint and dill and cummin and you overlook the more important [things] of the Namusa, judgment and mercy and faith. Now these were necessary for you to have done and you should not have overlooked those. 24 [You are] blind guides, who strain gnats and swallow camels! 25 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! For you cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but inside are full of violence and wickedness. 26 Blind Perishye! Cleanse first the inside of the cup and of the dish, so that their outside may also be clean. 27 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you are like white graves that on the outside appear beautiful, but on the inside are full of the bones of the dead and all corruption. 28 So also, on the outside you appear to men as just and on the inside you are full of wickedness and hypocrisy. 29 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye! Hypocrites! Because you maintain the graves of the prophets and you adorn the tombs of the just [ones] 30 and you say, “If we had been in the days of our fathers, we would not have been participants with them in the blood of the prophets.” 31 Thereby you witness against yourselves that you are the sons of those who killed the prophets. 32 And you also fill up the measure of your fathers. 33 [You] snakes! Offspring of vipers! How will you flee from the judgment of Gehenna? 34 Because of this, behold, I send to you prophets and wise men and Saphrey. Some of them you will kill and you will crucify and some of them you will beat in your synagogues and you will pursue them from city to city, 35 so that all the blood of the just [ones] that has been shed on the earth will come on you, from the blood of Habeil the just up to the blood of Zekharya, the son of Berakiya, whom you killed between the temple [and] the altar. 36 Truly I say to you, all these [things] will come on this generation. 37 Urishlem, Urishlem, you have killed the prophets and you have stoned those who were sent to her. How many times have I wanted to gather your sons like a hen gathers her chicks under her wings and you did not want [to be gathered]? 38 Behold, your house is left to you desolate. 39 For I say to you, you will not see me from now until you say, Blessed is he who comes in the name of Marya.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 24
And Yeshue came out of the temple to go away. And his disciples came near [and] were showing him the construction of the temple. 2 And he said to them, “Behold, do you not see all these [things]? Truly I say to you, [one] stone here will not be left on [another] stone that will not be demolished.” 3 And when Yeshue sat on the Mount of Olives, his disciples came near and said among themselves and to him, “Tell us when these [things] will be and what is the sign of your coming and of the end of the age.” 4 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Beware, [so that] no one will deceive you. 5 For many will come in my name and they will say, “I am Meshikha.” And they will deceive many. 6 Now you are about to hear of battles and a report of wars. See [that] you are not disturbed. For it is necessary that all these [things] occur, but the end [is] not Page 27 of 276
1

yet. 7 For people will rise against people and kingdom against kingdom and famines and pestilence and earthquakes will occur in various places. 8 But all these [things] are [only] the beginning of sorrows. 9 Then they will deliver you to trials and they will kill you and you will be hated by all nations because of my name.10 Then many will be caused to stumble and will hate one another and will betray one another. 11 And many false prophets will rise up and deceive many. 12 And because of the abundance of wickedness, the love of many will grow cold. 13 But he who endures until the last will have life. 14 And this gospel of the kingdom will be preached in the entire world for a testimony to all of the nations and then the end will come. 15 Now when you see the abominable sign of desecration that was spoken of by Danieil the prophet that will stand in the holy place (he who reads should understand), 16 then those who are in Yehudah should flee to the mountain. 17 And he who is on the roof should not come down to take that which is in his house. 18 And he who is in the field should not turn back behind himself to take his clothing. 19 But woe to the pregnant women and those who are nursing in those days! 20 Now pray, so that your flight will not be in the winter, nor on the Shabtha. 21 For then a great ordeal will occur, such as has not been from the beginning of the world until now, nor will be. 22 And if those days were not cut short, no flesh would live. But because of the chosen [ones], those days will be cut short. 23 Then if anyone should say to you, “Behold, here is Meshikha or [over] here,” do not believe [him]. 24 For false meshikha(s) and lying prophets will rise up and they will produce signs [and] wonders in order to deceive even the chosen [ones], if possible. 25 Behold, I have told you beforehand. 26 Therefore, if they say to you, “Behold, he is in the wilderness,” do not go out, or “behold, he is in an inner chamber,” do not believe [them]. 27 For as the lightning comes out of the east and is visible into the west, so the arrival of the Son of Man will be. 28 Wherever the carcass will be, there the eagles will be gathered. 29 And immediately after the ordeal of those days, the sun will grow dark and the moon will not shine its light and stars will fall from heaven and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 30 And then the standard of the Son of Man will be seen in heaven. And then all the tribes of the earth will mourn and they will see the Son of Man who comes on the clouds of heaven with power and great glory. 31 And he will send his angels with a great trumpet and they will gather his chosen [ones] from the four winds, from one end of heaven to the other. 32 Now learn an illustration from the fig tree. Immediately when its branches are tender and its leaves bud, you know that summer has arrived. 33 So also you, when you have seen these [things], will all know that I have arrived at the door. 34 Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass until all these [things] occur. 35 Heaven and earth will pass away, yet my words will not pass away. 36 But about that day and about that hour, no man knows, not even the angels of heaven, but the Father only. 37 And as the days of Nukh, so will be the arrival of the Son of Man. 38 For as they were before the flood, eating and drinking and marrying women and giving[women in marriage] to men, up to the day [in] which Nukh entered the ark, 39 and they did not know until the flood came and took all of them, so will be the arrival of the Son of Man. 40 Then two [men] will be in the field. One will be taken and one will be left. 41 And two [women] will be grinding at the mill. One will be taken and one will be left. 42 Therefore, watch, because you do not know in what hour your Lord will come. 43 But know this, if the master of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 44 Because of this, you should be prepared also, because in an hour that you do not expect, the Son of Man will come. 45 Who truly is the faithful and wise servant whom his lord has set over his household, to give them food in its time? 46 Blessed [is] that servant who, [when] his lord comes, finds him doing so. 47 Truly I say to you, he will set him over all that he has. 48 But if a servant, [being] evil in his heart, says, “My lord is Page 28 of 276

delaying to come,” 49 and begins to beat his fellow-servants and is eating and drinking with drunkards, 50 the lord of that servant will come in a day that he does not expect and in an hour that he does not know. 51 And he will cut him in pieces and assign [him] his portion with the hypocrites. Crying and gnashing of teeth will be there.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 25
Then the kingdom of heaven will be compared to ten virgins, those who took their lamps and went out for the arrival of the bridegroom and bride. 2 Now five of them were wise and five were foolish. 3 And those foolish [virgins] took their lamps, but did not take oil with them. 4 But those wise [virgins] took oil in vessels with their lamps. 5 Now when the bridegroom was delayed, all of them tired and went to sleep. 6 And at midnight there was a shout, “Behold, the bridegroom comes. Go out to meet him.” 7 Then all those virgins got up and put their lamps in good order. 8 And those foolish [virgins] said to the wise, “Give us [some] of your oil, because, behold, our lamps have gone out.” 9 These wise [virgins] answered and said, “Will there be enough for us and for you? But rather, go to those who sell and buy [some] for yourselves. 10 And while they went to buy, the bridegroom came. And those who were prepared entered with him into the banquet hall and the door was shut. 11 Now later, those other virgins also came and said, “Our Lord, our Lord, open [the door] for us.” 12 But he answered and said to them, “Truly I say to you, I do not know you.” 13 Therefore, watch, for you do not know that day or hour. 14 For [the kingdom of heaven is] as a man who went on a journey. He called his servants and delivered his possessions to them. 15 There was one to whom he gave five talents and another two and another one, each according to his ability. And immediately he went on a journey. 16 Now he who received five talents went, engaged in business with them, and gained five others. 17 And in the same manner also, he who [received] two engaged in business [and gained] two others. 18 But he who received one [talent] went [and] dug in the ground and hid the money of his lord. 19 Now after a long time the lord of those servants came and received an accounting from them. 20 And he who received five talents came near and brought five others and said, “My lord, you gave me five talents. Behold, I have engaged in business [and gained] five others with them.” 21 His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over little. I will place you over much. Enter into the joy of your lord.” 22 And he who [received] two talents came near and said, “My lord, you gave me two talents. Behold, I have engaged in business [and gained] two others with them.” 23 His lord said to him, “Well done, good and faithful servant. You have been faithful over little. I will place you over much. Enter into the joy of your lord.” 24 Now he who received one talent also came near and said, “My lord, I know that you are a hard man and [that] you reap where you have not sown and [that] you gather from where you have not scattered. 25 And I was afraid and went [and] hid your talent in the ground. Behold, you have [what is] yours.” 26 His lord answered and said to him, “Wicked and lazy servant, you know that I reap where I have not sown and gather from where I have not scattered. 27 It would have been right for you to have put my money on the exchange table and I would have come and demanded my own with its interest. 28 Take from him, therefore, the talent and give it to him who has ten talents. 29 For to him who has it will be given and it will be added to him. But he who does not have, even that which he has will be taken from him. 30 And throw the useless servant into outer darkness. Crying and gnashing of teeth will be there.” 31 And when the Son of Man comes in his Page 29 of 276
1

glory and all of his holy angels with him, then he will sit on the throne of his glory. 32 And all the nations will be gathered before him. And he will separate them one from another as a shepherd who separates the sheep from the goats. 33 And he will set the sheep on his right and the goats on his left. 34 Then the king will say to those who are on his right, “Come, blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom that has been prepared for you from the foundations of the world.” 35 For I was hungry and you gave me to eat. And I was thirsty and you gave me to drink. I was a stranger and you took me in. 36 I was naked and you covered me. I was sick and you visited me. And I was in prison and you came to me. 37 Then those just [ones] will say to him, “Our Lord, when did we see that you were hungry and feed you, or that you were thirsty and give you drink? 38 And when did we see that you were a stranger and take you in or that you were naked and cover you? 39 And when did we see you sick or in prison and come to you?” 40 And the king will answer and say to them, “Truly I say to you, whatever you did for one of these, my little brothers, you did for me.” 41 Then he will say also to those who are on his left, “Go away from me, cursed [ones], to the eternal fire that is prepared for the Accuser and his angels. 42 For I was hungry and you did not give me to eat and I was thirsty and you did not give me drink. 43 And I was a stranger and you did not take me in and I was naked and you did not cover me. And I was sick and I was in prison and you did not visit me.” 44 Then they will also answer and say, “Our Lord, when did we see you hungry or thirsty or a stranger or naked or sick or in prison and not minister to you?” 45 Then he will answer and say to them, “Truly I say to you, whatever you did not do for one of these little ones, you did also not do for me.” 46 And these will go to eternal torment and the just [ones] to eternal life.”

MATTHEW CHAPTER 26
And it happened that when Yeshue completed all of these sayings, he said to his disciples, 2 “You know that after two days will be the Petskha and the Son of Man will be betrayed to be crucified. 3 Then the chief priests and Saphrey and elders of the people were gathered at the court of the high priest, who was called Qayapha. 4 And they held counsel against Yeshue that they might arrest him by deceit and kill him. 5 And they were saying, “Not during the festival, lest a riot should occur among the people.” 6 And while Yeshue was in Beth-Naiya in the house of Shimon the jar-maker, 7 a woman approached him who had with her an alabaster vase of oil that was very costly perfume. And she poured it on the head of Yeshue while he was lying down [to eat]. 8 And his disciples saw [it] and it displeased them. And they said, “Why [was there] this waste? 9 For this [oil] could have been sold for much and [the money] given to the poor.”10 But Yeshue knew [this] and said to them, “Why are you troubling the woman? She has done a good deed for me. 11 For you will always have the poor with you, but you will not always have me. 12 Now this [act], that she poured this oil on my body, she did as though for my burial. 13 And truly I say to you, wherever this my gospel is preached in all the world, what she has done will be spoken also for her remembrance.” 14 Then one of the twelve, who was called Yehudah Sekariuta, went to the chief priests. 15 And he said to them, “What do you want to give me? And I will deliver him to you.” Now they promised him thirty [pieces] of silver. 16 And from that time on, he was seeking an occasion to betray him. 17 Now on the first day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, the disciples came near to Yeshue and said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare for you to eat the Petskha?” 18 And he said to them, “Go to the city to a certain [one] and Page 30 of 276
1

say to him, “Our Master says, my time comes.” With you I will serve the Petskha with my disciples.” 19 And his disciples did as Yeshue had commanded them and they prepared the Petskha. 20 And when it was evening, he was lying down [to eat] with his twelve disciples. 21 And while they were eating, he said, “Truly I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And it made them very sad. And each one of them began to say to him, “Is it I, my Lord?” 23 But he answered and said, “He who dips his hand with me in the dish, he will betray me. 24 And the Son of Man will go as it is written about him. But woe to the man by whose hand the Son of Man is betrayed! It would be better for that man if he had not been born.” 25 Yehudah, the betrayer, answered and said, “Is it I, my Master?” Yeshue said to him, “You have said [it].” 26 And while they were eating, Yeshue took up bread and blessed [it] and broke [it] and gave to his disciples and said, “Take, eat, this is my body.” 27 And he took up a cup and gave thanks and gave [it] to them. And he said, “Take, drink from it, all of you. 28 This is my blood of the new covenant that is poured out for many for the forgiveness of sins. 29 And I say to you, I will not drink from now [on] from this fruit of the vine until the day in which I drink it with you anew in the kingdom of God.” 30 And they offered praise and went out to the Mount of Olives. 31 Then Yeshue said to them, “All of you will be offended by me in this night, for it is written: I will strike the shepherd and the sheep of his flock will be scattered. 32 But after I have risen, I [will go] before you into Galila.” 33 Kipha answered and said to him, “Even if everyone be offended by you, I will never be offended by you.” 34 Yeshue said to him, “Truly I say to you, in this night before the rooster crows three times, you will deny me.” 35 Kipha said to him, “If it be [necessary] for me to die with you, I would not deny you.” And so also said all the disciples. 36 Then Yeshue came with them to a place that was called Gadsiman. And he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I go [and] pray.” 37 And he took Kipha and the two sons of Zabedai. And he began to be sad and wearied. 38 And he said to them, “There is sadness to my soul unto death. Remain with me here and watch with me.” 39 And he went on a little and fell down on his face and was praying and said, “My Father, if it is possible, let this cup pass by me. Nevertheless not as I want, but as you [want].” 40 And he came to his disciples and found them asleep. And he said to Kipha, “What, were you not able to watch with me one hour? 41 Watch and pray, so that you will not enter into temptation. The spirit is ready, but the body is weak.” 42 Again he went a second time [and] prayed. And he said, “My Father, if it is not possible for this cup to pass over, except I drink it, your desire will be [done].” 43 And he came again [and] found them asleep, for their eyes were heavy. 44 And he left them and went again [and] prayed a third time and he said the same thing. 45 Then he came to his disciples and said to them, “Sleep now and be rested. Behold, the hour has arrived and the Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of sinners. 46 Rise up, we will go. Behold, he who has betrayed me has arrived.” 47 And while he was speaking, behold, Yehudah the betrayer, one of the twelve, came and with him [was] a large crowd with swords and staffs, from before the chief priests and elders of the people. 48 And Yehudah the betrayer had given them a sign and said, “It is he whom I kiss. Arrest him.” 49 And immediately he came near to Yeshue and said, “Peace, my Master.” And he kissed him. 50 And Yeshue said to him, “Did you come for this [purpose], my friend?” Then they came near and placed their hands on Yeshue and arrested him. 51 And behold, one of those who [were] with Yeshue stretched out his hand and drew a sword and struck a servant of the high priest and cut off his ear. 52 Then Yeshue said to him, “Return the sword to its place, for all those who take up swords by swords will die. 53 Or do you think that I am not able to ask of my Father and would he [not] assign to me now more than twelve legions of angels? 54 How then would the scriptures be fulfilled that so it must be?” 55 At that moment Yeshue said to the crowds, “Have you come out as against a robber with swords and Page 31 of 276

with staffs to arrest me? I was sitting and teaching every day with you in the temple and you did not arrest me. 56 Now this has occurred so that the writings of the prophets would be fulfilled.” Then all the disciples deserted him and fled. 57 And those who arrested Yeshue led him to Qayapha, the high priest, where the Saphrey and elders were gathering. 58 And Shimon Kipha was following him from a distance up to the courtyard of the high priest. And he entered [and] sat inside with the guards that he might see the end. 59 Now the chief priests and elders and all the assembly were seeking witnesses against Yeshue so that they might kill him 60 and they did not find [them] and many false witnesses came. But finally, two came near 61 and said, “This [man] said, “I am able to destroy the temple of Alaha and to rebuild it in three days.”“ 62 And the high priest stood up and said to him, “Do you not answer anything [to this] matter? Why do these [men] witness against you?” 63 But Yeshue was silent. And the high priest answered and said to him, “I command you by the living Alaha that you tell us if you are Meshikha, the Son of Alaha.” 64 Yeshue said to him, “You have said. But I say to you, from now on you will see the Son of Man sitting at the right hand of power and coming on the clouds of heaven.” 65 Then the high priest tore his clothes and said, “Behold, he has blasphemed. Why, therefore, do we need witnesses? Behold, now you have heard his blasphemy. 66 What do you want [to do]?” They answered and were saying, “He is deserving of death.” 67 Then they spit in his face and they were striking him. And others were beating him. 68 And they said, “Prophesy to us, Meshikha. Who is the one who beat you?” 69 Now Kipha was sitting outside in the courtyard and a certain maid came near to him. And she said to him, “You also were with Yeshue the Natsraya.” 70 But he denied [it] before all of them and said, “I do not know what you are saying.” 71 And when he went out to the porch, another [maid] saw him and said to them, “This [man] also was there with Yeshue the Natsraya.” 72 And again he denied [it] with oaths, “I do not know the man.” 73 And after a little while, those who were standing by came near and said to Kipha, “Surely also you are one of them, for your speech also makes you known.” 74 Then he began to curse and to say, “I do not know the man.” And immediately the rooster crowed. 75 And Kipha remembered the word of Yeshue who said to him, “Before the rooster crows three times, you will deny me.” And he went outside [and] cried bitterly.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 27
Now when it was morning, all the chief priests and elders of the people took counsel against Yeshue so that they might put him to death. 2 And they bound him and took him and delivered him to Pilate the governor. 3 Then Yehudah, the betrayer, when he saw that Yeshue was condemned, repented and went [and] returned those thirty [pieces] of silver to the chief priests and to the elders. 4 And he said, “I have sinned, because I have betrayed innocent blood.” But they said to him, “What [is it] to us? You know [what to do about it].” 5 And he threw down the silver in the temple and left and went [and] strangled himself. 6 Now the chief priests picked up the silver and said, “It is not lawful to put [this] in the treasury, because it is the price of blood.” 7 And they took counsel and bought with it the field of the potter as a cemetery for strangers. 8 Because of this, that field is called “The Field of Blood’ until today. 9 Then it was fulfilled what was spoken by way of the prophet, who said: I took the thirty [pieces] of silver, the price of the precious [one] which [those] from the sons of Israyel agreed on,10 and I gave them for the field of the potter as Marya commanded me. 11 Now Yeshue stood before the governor.

And the governor asked him and said to him, “Are you the king of the Yehudaye?” Yeshue said to him, “You have said.” 12 And while the chief priests and elders were accusing him, he did not give any answer. 13 Then Pilate said to him, “Do you not hear how much they testify against you?” 14 And he did not give him an answer, not even with one word. And he greatly marveled at this. 15 Now at every feast, the governor was accustomed to free one prisoner to the people, whomever they were desiring. 16 And they had imprisoned a well-known prisoner who was called Bar-Aba. 17 And when they were gathered, Pilate said to them, “Whom do you want me to free to you, Bar-Aba or Yeshue, who is called Meshikha?” 18 For Pilate was realizing that they had delivered him up because of envy. 19 Now while the governor sat on his judgment seat, his wife sent to him and said to him, “Have nothing to do with that just [man], for I have suffered much today in my dream because of him.” 20 But the chief priests and elders persuaded the crowds to ask for Bar-Aba and to destroy Yeshue. 21 And the governor answered and said to them, “Whom do you want me to free to you from the two?” And they said, “Bar-Aba.” 22 Pilate said to them, “And what should I do to Yeshue, who is called Meshikha?” All of them said to him, “He should be crucified!” 23 The governor said to them, “For what has he done that is evil?” But they cried out all the more and said, “He should be crucified!” 24 Now Pilate, when he saw that nothing helped, but [that] the clamor was increased, he took water [and] washed his hands before the crowd and said, “I am absolved of the blood of this just[man]. You should do [what you will].” 25 And all the people answered and said, “His blood [be] on us and on our children.” 26 Then he released Bar-Aba to them and scourged Yeshue with whips and delivered him up to be crucified. 27 Then the soldiers of the governor took Yeshue to the Praetorium and assembled all the company of soldiers against him. 28 And they stripped him and clothed him with a robe of purple. 29 And they wove a crown of thorns and placed [it] on his head and a reed in his right hand and they bowed down on their knees before him and were mocking him and said, “Hail, king of the Yehudaye.” 30 And they spit in his face and they took the reed and were striking him on his head. 31 And after they had mocked him, they stripped him of the robe and dressed him in his clothes and led him away to be crucified. 32 And while they were going out, they found a man, a Cyrenian, whose name [was] Shimon. They compelled this [man] to carry his cross. 33 And they came to the place that is called Gagulta, which is interpreted, “The Skull.” 34 And they gave him vinegar that was mixed with gall to drink. And he tasted [it], yet did not want to drink [it]. 35 And when they crucified him, they divided his clothes by lot. 36 And they were sitting and watching him there. 37 And they placed over his head the cause of his death in an inscription, “This is Yeshue, king of the Yehudaye.” 38 And two thieves were crucified with him, one on his right and one on his left. 39 And those who were passing by were insulting him and were shaking their heads. 40 And they said, “[You who would] tear down the temple and rebuild it in three days, save yourself if you [are] the Son of Alaha and come down from the cross.” 41 Likewise, also, the chief priests were mocking [him] with the Saphrey and elders and Perishye. 42 And they said, “He saved others, [but] is not able to save himself. If he is the king of Israyel, let him come down now from the cross and we will believe in him. 43 He put his trust in Alaha. Let him save him now if he is pleased with him, for he said, “I am the Son of Alaha.”“ 44 Likewise, also, those robbers who were crucified with him were insulting him. 45 Now from the sixth hour there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 46 And about the ninth hour, Yeshue cried with a loud voice and said, “Eil, Eil, why have you left me?” 47 And some of those who were standing there, when they heard, were saying, “This [man] calls to Eliya.” 48 And immediately one of them ran and took a sponge and filled it with vinegar and placed it on a reed and offered [a drink] to him. 49 But the rest were saying, “Leave [him]. We will see if Eliya comes to rescue him.” 50 Page 33 of 276

Now Yeshue again cried out with a loud voice and gave up his spirit. 51 And immediately the curtains of the temple were torn in two from the top to the bottom and the earth was shaken and the rocks were split. 52 And the tombs were opened and many bodies of the holy [ones] who were asleep rose up 53 and went out. And after his resurrection they entered the holy city and were seen by many. 54 And the centurion and those who were watching Yeshue with him, when they saw the earthquake and those [things] that had occurred, they were very afraid and said, “Truly this was the Son of Alaha.” 55 Now there were also there many women who were watching from a distance, those who had followed Yeshue from Galila and had ministered to him. 56 One of them [was] Maryam Magdelaita, and Maryam, the mother of Yaquv and Yusi, and the mother of the sons of Zabedai. 57 Now when it was evening, a rich man from Ramtha came, whose name [was] Yauseph, who also was taught by Yeshue. 58 This [man] came near to Pilate and asked for the body of Yeshue. And Pilate commanded that the body be given to him. 59 And Yauseph took the body and wrapped it in a cloth of clean linen. 60 And he placed it in his new tomb that was hewn in rock. And they rolled a large stone [and] placed [it] over the opening of the tomb and they went away. 61 Now Maryam Magdelaita was there and the other Maryam, who were sitting opposite the grave. 62 And on the next day that was after the preparation, the chief priests and the Perishye were gathered with Pilate 63 and said to him, “Our lord, we are reminded that that deceiver was saying while he was alive, “After three days, I will rise up.” 64 Command therefore to guard the grave until the third day, so that his disciples will not come [and] steal him in the night and say to the people that he has risen from the dead and the last deception should become more evil than the first.” 65 Pilate said to them, “You have soldiers. Go, watch as you know [how].” 66 And they went [and] set a watch on the tomb and sealed that stone, with the soldiers.

MATTHEW CHAPTER 28
Now in the evening of the Shabtha, as it was twilight [on] the first of the week, Maryam Magdelaita and the other Maryam came to see the grave. 2 And behold, a great earthquake occurred, for an angel of Marya came down from heaven and came near [and] rolled the stone from the opening and he was sitting on it. 3 And his appearance was like lightning and his clothes were white like snow. 4 And those who were watching, trembled with fear of him and became like dead [men]. 5 Now the angel answered and said to the women, “Do not fear, for I know that you seek Yeshue who was crucified. 6 He is not here, for he has risen, as he said. Come, see the place in which our Lord was laid. 7 And go quickly [and] tell his disciples that he has risen from the dead, and behold, [he goes] before you to Galila. There you will see him. Behold, I have told you.” 8 And they went away quickly from the grave with fear and with great joy and ran to tell his disciples. 9 And behold, Yeshue met up with them and said to them, “Peace to you.” And they came near [and] clasped his feet and worshipped him.10 Then Yeshue said to them, “Do not fear! But go [and] tell my brothers that they should go to Galila and there they will see me.” 11 Now when they had gone, some of those soldiers came to the city and told the chief priests everything that had occurred. 12 And they were gathered with the elders and took counsel and gave no little money to the soldiers 13 and said to them, “Say that his disciples came [and] stole him in the night while we were asleep. 14 And if this is heard before the governor, we will persuade him and we will not make trouble for you.” 15 Now they, when they had received the money, did as they had instructed them. And this report has gone out among the Yehudaye Page 34 of 276
1

up to today. 16 Now the eleven disciples went to Galila to the mountain where Yeshue had arranged [for] them to meet. 17 And when they saw him, they worshipped him. But some of them were doubting. 18 And Yeshue came near [and] spoke with them and said to them, “All authority is given to me in heaven and on earth. And as my Father sent me, I send you. 19 Go, therefore, disciple all nations and immerse them in the name [of] the Father and the Son and the Rukha d’Qudsha. 20 And teach them to keep all that I commanded you. And behold, I am with you all the days until the end of the world.” Amen.

MARK
CHAPTER 1
The beginning of the gospel of Yeshue-Meshikha, the Son of Alaha. 2 As it is written in Eshaya the prophet: Behold I will send my messenger before your face that he might prepare your way. 3 A voice that cries in the wilderness: prepare the way of Marya and make straight his paths. 4 Yukhanan was in the wilderness, baptizing and preaching the immersion of repentance for the forgiveness of sins. 5 And the whole region of Yehudah went out to him and all the sons of Urishlem, and he was baptizing them in the Yurdinan [river] as they confessed their sins. 6 Now Yukhanan was clothed with clothing of the hair of camels and was bound with a leather girdle around his loins and his food was locusts and wild honey. 7 And he was preaching and said, “Behold, one comes after me who is more powerful than I, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to stoop [and] loosen. 8 I have immersed you with water, but he will immerse you with the Rukha d’Qudsha.” 9 And it was in those days [that] Yeshue came from Natsrath of Galila and was immersed in the Yurdinan [River] by Yukhanan.10 And immediately when he came up from the water, he saw heaven split and the Rukha, as a dove, came down on him. 11 And there was a voice from the heavens: “You are my beloved Son. I am pleased with you.” 12 And immediately the Rukha led him out into the wilderness. 13 And he was there in the wilderness [for] forty days, being tempted by Satan. And he was with the wild beasts and angels were ministering to him. 14 Now after Yukhanan was delivered up, Yeshue came to Galila and was preaching the gospel of the kingdom of Alaha. 15 And he said, “The time is complete and the kingdom of Alaha has arrived. Repent and believe in the gospel.” 16 And while walking round about the Sea of Galila, he saw Shimon and Andrew, his brother, who were casting nets into the sea, for they were fishermen. 17 And Yeshue said to them, “Follow me and I will make you fishermen of men.” 18 And immediately they left their nets and followed him. 19 And as he passed on a little further, he saw Yaquv, the son of Zabedai, and Yukhanan, his brother, and they also [were] in a boat mending their nets. 20 And he called them and immediately they left Zabedai, their father, in the boat with the hired servants and followed him. 21 And when they entered Kepharnakhum, immediately he was teaching on the Shabtha(s) in their synagogues. 22 And they were amazed at his teaching, for he was teaching them as an authority and not as their Saphrey. 23 And in their synagogue there was a man in whom was an unclean spirit. And he called out 24 and said, “What have we to do with you, Yeshue, the Natsraya? Have you come to destroy us? I know who you [are]. You are the holy one of Alaha.” 25 And Yeshue rebuked him and said, “Close your mouth and come out of him.” 26 And the unclean spirit threw him down and cried out with a loud voice and went out of him. 27 And all of them were amazed and were asking each other and saying, “What is this? And what is this new teaching? For with authority he commands even the unclean spirits and they obey him.” 28 And immediately his fame went out into all the land of Galila. 29 And they went away from the synagogue and came to the house of Shimon and of Andrew, with Yaquv and Yukhanan. 30 And the mother-in-law of Shimon was sick with a fever and they told him about her. 31 And he came near [and] took her by her hand and raised her up. And immediately her fever left her and she was ministering to them. 32 Now in the evening at the setting of the sun, they brought to him all those who were very ill and possessed. 33 And the entire city was gathered at the door. 34 And he healed many that were very ill with diverse Page 36 of 276
1

sicknesses and he cast out many devils. And he did not allow the devils to speak, because they knew him. 35 And in the morning he got up very early and went to a desert place and was praying there. 36 And Shimon and those with him were searching for him. 37 And when they found him, they said to him, “Everyone is searching for you.” 38 He said to them, “Walk into the villages and into the cities that are nearby, for I will also preach there, for I have come to [do] this.” 39 And he was preaching in all their synagogues in all of Galila and cast out demons. 40 And a leper came to him and fell at his feet and was begging him and said to him, “If you want to, you can cleanse me.” 41 And Yeshue had compassion on him and stretched out his hand, touched him and said, “I want to. Be cleansed.” 42 And immediately his leprosy went away from him and he was cleansed. 43 And he charged him and sent him out 44 and said to him, “See [that] you do not speak to anyone, but go, show yourself to the priests and offer an offering for your purification, as Mushe commanded for their testimony.” 45 But when he went away, he began much preaching and made known the event, so that Yeshue was not able to openly enter the city, but was outside in a deserted place. And they were coming to him from every place.

MARK CHAPTER 2
And Yeshue again entered into Kepharnakhum after [some] days. And when they heard that he was in the house, 2 many gathered, so that [the house] was not able to contain them, not even in front of the door. And he was speaking the word with them. 3 And they came to him and brought him a paralytic, bearing him between four [men]. 4 And because they were not able to draw near to him because of the crowd, they climbed up to the roof and lifted the covering of the place where Yeshue was and they lowered the bed on which the paralytic was laid. 5 And when Yeshue saw their faith, he said to that paralytic, “My son, your sins are forgiven you.” 6 Now there were there some Saphrey and Perishye, who were sitting and reasoning in their heart[s], 7 “Why does this [man] speak blasphemy? Who is able to forgive sins, except one, Alaha?” 8 But Yeshue knew in his spirit that they were reasoning these [things] in themselves and he said to them, “Why do you reason these [things] in your heart[s]? 9 Which is easier to say to the paralytic, “Your sins are forgiven you” or to say, “Rise, take up your bed and walk?”10 But that you might know that it is lawful [for] the Son of Man to forgive sins on earth,” he said to the paralytic, 11 “I say to you, Rise, take up your bed, and go to your house.” 12 And he got up immediately and took his bed and went away in the sight of all, so that all of them were amazed and praised Alaha, saying that they had never seen such. 13 And he went again to the sea and all the crowds were coming to him and he was teaching them. 14 And while passing by, he saw Lewi the son of Alphaeus, who was sitting at the customs-house and he said to him, “Follow me.” And he got up [and] followed him. 15 And it happened that when he was seated [to eat] in his house, many tax collectors and sinners were seated [to eat] with Yeshue and with his disciples, for there were many and they followed him. 16 And the Saphrey and the Perishye, when they saw that he was eating with the tax collectors and with sinners, said to his disciples, “Why does he eat and drink with tax collectors and sinners?” 17 But when Yeshue heard [this] he said to them, “The whole do not have need for a physician, but those who are very ill. I have not come to call the just, but rather the sinners.” 18 Now the disciples of Yukhanan and the Perishye were fasting and came and said to him, “Why do the disciples of Yukhanan and of the Perishye fast and your disciples do not fast?” 19 Yeshue said to them, “Are the guests of the wedding feast able to fast as Page 37 of 276
1

long as the bridegroom is with them? No! 20 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken away from them. Then they will fast in that day. 21 No man lays a new patch and sews [it] on an old garment, lest the new addition takes away from the old and the tear becomes worse. 22 And no man puts new wine into old wineskins, lest the wine burst the wineskins and the wineskins are ruined and the wine is poured out. But they put new wine into new wineskins.” 23 And it happened that when Yeshue went [through] the sown fields on the Shabtha, his disciples were walking and picking the heads of grain. 24 And the Perishye said to him, “See, why are they doing something that is not lawful [to do] on the Shabtha?” 25 Yeshue said to them, “Have you never read what Dawid did when he had need and was hungry, [both] he and those with him, 26 how he entered the house of Alaha, while Avithar [was] high priest, and ate the bread of the table of Marya, which was not lawful to eat except for the priests, and gave also to those who were with him?” 27 And he said to them, “The Shabtha was made for man and man was not [made] for the Shabtha. 28 So also, the Son of Man is the Lord of the Shabtha.”

MARK CHAPTER 3
And again Yeshue entered into the synagogue, and there was there a certain man whose hand was withered. 2 And they were watching him, so that if he healed him on the Shabtha, they might accuse him. 3 And he said to that man whose hand was withered, “Stand up in the middle.” 4 And he also said to them, “Is it lawful on the Shabtha to do that which is good or that which is evil? To save life or to destroy [it]?” But they were silent. 5 And he looked on them with anger, being saddened by the hardness of their heart[s]. And he said to that man, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched [it] out and his hand was restored. 6 And the Perishye went out immediately with the Herodians and took counsel against him, how they might destroy him. 7 And Yeshue went with his disciples to the sea and many people were joining with him from Galila and from Yehudah 8 and from Urishlem and from Adum and from beyond Yurdinan and from Tsur and from Tsaidan. Many crowds who had heard all that he had done came to him. 9 And he told his disciples to bring him a boat because of the crowds, so that they would not press on him.10 For he had healed so many up until then that they were falling on him in order to touch him. 11 And those who had torments of unclean spirits, when they saw him, were falling down and crying out and saying, “You are the Son of Alaha.” 12 And he severely rebuked them that they should not reveal him. 13 And he climbed up a mountain and called those whom he wanted and they came to him. 14 And he chose twelve to be with him and to send them to preach 15 and to be authorities to heal the sick and to cast out devils. 16 And he named Shimon the name Kipha, 17 and to Yaquv the son of Zabedai and to Yukhanan the brother of Yaquv, he gave them the name Beni-Regshey, which is, sons of thunder. 18 And [he chose] Andrew and Philip and Bar-Tulmai and Mattai and Tama and Yaquv, the son of Alphaeus, and Thadai and Shimon the Canaanite, 19 and Yehudah Sekariuta, who betrayed him. And they came to a house 20 and the crowds gathered again, so that they were not able to eat bread. 21 And his relatives heard and went out to seize him, for they were saying that he had gone out of his mind. 22 And those Saphrey who had come down from Urishlem were saying, “Beelzebub is in him, and he casts out devils by the chief of the devils.” 23 And Yeshue called them and in parables said to them, “How is Satan able to cast out Satan? 24 For if a kingdom will be divided against itself, that kingdom is not able to stand. 25 And if a house will be divided against itself, that house is not able to stand. 26 And if Satan stands against Page 38 of 276
1

himself and is divided, he is not able to stand, but is [at] his end. 27 No man is able to enter the house of a strong man and to grab his possessions, except he first binds the strong man and then robs his house. 28 Truly I say to you, all the sins and blasphemies that men will blaspheme will be forgiven them, 29 but he who blasphemes against the Rukha d’Qudsha has no forgiveness forever, but is guilty before the judgment that is eternal.” 30 [This was] because they were saying, “He has an unclean spirit.” 31 And his mother and his brothers came, standing outside, and they sent [someone] to call him to them. 32 Now the crowd was sitting around him and they said to him, “Behold, your mother and your brothers [are] outside seeking you.” 33 And he answered and said to them, “Who is my mother? And who are my brothers?” 34 And he looked at those who sat with him and said, “Behold, my mother, and behold, my brothers. 35 For he who does the will of Alaha is my brother and my sister and my mother.”

MARK CHAPTER 4
And again he began to teach by the shore of the sea. And large crowds were gathered around him so that he boarded [and] sat in a boat on the sea. And the entire crowd was standing on the land by the shore of the sea. 2 And he was teaching them in many parables and said in his teaching, 3 “Listen. Behold, a sower went out to sow 4 and while he sowed, one [seed] fell by the side of the road and a bird came and ate it. 5 And another [seed] fell on rock where there was not much earth, and immediately it sprouted because there was no depth of earth. 6 But when the sun came up, [the plant] withered and because it had no root, it dried up. 7 And another [seed] fell among the thorns. And the thorns grew up and choked it and it did not bear fruit. 8 But another [seed] fell on good earth and grew up and matured and bore fruit, some thirty and some sixty and some one hundred[fold].” 9 And he said, “He who has ears to hear should hear.”10 Now when they were alone, those who were with him with his twelve asked him about that parable. 11 And Yeshue said to them, “To you is given to know the mystery of the kingdom of Alaha. But to [those] outside, everything is in parables, 12 so that when they see, they will see yet not see, and when they hear, they will hear yet not understand, lest they should return and their sins would be forgiven them.” 13 And he said to them, “Do you not understand this parable? Then how will you understand all parables? 14 The sower, who sowed, sowed the word. 15 And those [seed] that were by the side of the road are those in whom the word is sown. And when they have heard, immediately Satan comes and takes away the word that was sown in their heart[s]. 16 And those that were sown on rock are those that when they have heard the word, immediately receive it with joy. 17 And they have no root in themselves, but they are temporary. And when trouble or persecution happens on account of the word, they are quickly offended. 18 And those that were sown among thorns are those who have heard the word 19 and the care of this world and the deceit of riches and the rest of the other lusts enter [and] choke the word, and they are without fruit. 20 And those that were sown on good ground are those who have heard the word and receive [it] and bear fruit thirty and sixty and one hundred[fold].” 21 And he said to them, “Is there any profit for a lamp to be placed under a basket or under a couch? Should it not be placed on a lamp stand? 22 For there is not anything that is hidden that will not be revealed or [anything] occurring in secret and is not revealed. 23 If a man has ears to hear, he should hear.” 24 And he said to them, “Notice what you hear. With that measure that you measure, it will be measured to you, and it is accumulated to you who hear. 25 For he who has, it will be given to him. And he Page 39 of 276
1

who has not, even that which he has will be taken from him.” 26 And he was saying, “Such is the kingdom of Alaha as a man who throws seed on the ground. 27 And he will sleep and rise in the night and in the day, and the seed will grow and be tall, as he does not know [how], 28 for the ground brings forth the fruit. And first comes the plant, and after it the ear, and finally the full grain in the ear. 29 And when the fruit is ripe, immediately the sickle comes, because the harvest has arrived.” 30 And he said, “What is the kingdom of Alaha like and with what parable can we compare it? 31 It is as a grain of mustard, which, when it is planted in the ground, is the least of all the small seeds that are on the earth. 32 And when it is planted, it grows up and becomes greater than all the herbs and produces great branches, so that a bird is able to nest in its shade.” 33 With parables such as these, Yeshue was speaking with them, parables such as they were able to hear. 34 And without parables, he was not speaking with them. But he was explaining everything to his disciples privately. 35 And he said to them on the same day at evening, “Let us cross over to the other shore.” 36 And they left the crowds and conducted him away in a boat, and there were other boats with them. 37 And there was a great storm and wind, and waves were falling into the boat, and [the boat] was about to be filled. 38 And Yeshue was asleep on a cushion in the stern of the boat, and they came [and] woke him and said to him, “Our Master, do you not care that we are being destroyed?” 39 And he rose up and rebuked the wind and said to the sea, “Cease; be restrained.” And the wind ceased and a great calm occurred. 40 And he said to them, “Why are you fearful in this manner? And why do you not have faith?” 41 And they feared a great fear and were saying one to another, “Who indeed is this [man] that the winds and sea obey him?”

MARK CHAPTER 5
And he came to the opposite side of the sea to the region of the Gedraye. 2 And when he disembarked from the boat, he met a man from the tombs who had an unclean spirit. 3 And he was living in the tombs and no man was able to bind him with chains, 4 because whenever he was bound with shackles and with chains, he would break the chains and would cut the shackles. And no man was able to subdue him. 5 And always in the night and in the day, he was in the tombs and in the mountains and he was crying and cutting himself with stones. 6 And when he saw Yeshue from a distance, he ran [and] worshipped him. 7 And he cried with a loud voice and said, “What have I to do with you, Yeshue, Son of the Most High Alaha? I urge you by Alaha that you do not torment me.” 8 For he was saying to him, “Come out from the man, unclean spirit.” 9 And he asked him, “What is your name?” He said to him, “Our name [is] Legion, because we are many.”10 And he was begging him very much not to send him out of the country. 11 Now there was there near the mountain a large herd of pigs that were feeding. 12 And those demons were begging him and saying, “Send us against those pigs that we may attack them.” 13 And he allowed them. And those unclean spirits went away and attacked the pigs, and that herd ran to a steep place and fell into the sea and about two thousand [pigs] were drowned in the water. 14 And those who were tending them fled and reported [it] in the city and also in the villages. And they came out to see what had happened. 15 And they came to Yeshue and saw him, the one possessed of demons, in whom Legion had been, dressed and sober and sitting. And they were afraid. 16 And those who had seen related to them how it happened to the one possessed of demons and also about those pigs. 17 And they began begging him to leave their border. 18 And Page 40 of 276
1

when he boarded a boat, he who had been possessed of demons was begging him that he might be with him, 19 yet he did not allow him. On the contrary, he said to him, “Go to your house to your people and tell them what Marya did for you and how he had compassion on you.” 20 And he went and began preaching in the Decapolis what Yeshue had done for him, and all of them were amazed. 21 And when Yeshue had crossed over by boat to that other side, large crowds again were gathered around him while he was by the shore of the sea. 22 And a certain [man] whose name [was] Yuarash came from the rulers of the synagogue. And when he saw him, he fell down at his feet. 23 And he was begging him very much and said to him, “My daughter is very sick. Come [and] place your hand on her and she will be made whole and live.” 24 And Yeshue went away with him and a large crowd followed him and they were pressing on him. 25 And a certain woman, who had a flow of blood [for] twelve years, 26 who had suffered much from many doctors and had spent everything that she had and was not helped some, but was afflicted even more, 27 when she heard about Yeshue, came through the press of the crowd [and] from behind him touched his clothing, 28 for she was saying, “If only I can touch his clothing, I will live.” 29 And immediately the flow of her blood dried up and she felt in her body that she had been healed of her sickness. 30 Now Yeshue immediately knew within himself that power had gone out of him. And he turned to the crowd and said, “Who touched my garments?” 31 And his disciples said to him, “Do you see the crowds that are pressing you, and you say, who touched me?” 32 And he was looking to see who had done this. 33 And that woman, being afraid and trembling, because she knew what had happened to her, came [and] fell down before him and told him all the truth. 34 And he said to her, “My daughter, your faith has given you life. Go in peace and be healed from your sickness.” 35 And while he was speaking they came from the house of the ruler of the synagogue and were saying, “Your daughter is dead. Why therefore are you troubling the teacher?” 36 But Yeshue heard the word that they said and said to the ruler of the synagogue, “Do not fear; only believe.” 37 And he did not allow anyone to go with him, except Shimon Kipha and Yaquv and Yukhanan, the brother of Yaquv. 38 And they came to that house of the ruler of the synagogue and saw that they were troubled and weeping and wailing. 39 And he entered and said to them, “Why are you troubled and weeping? The girl is not dead, but she is asleep,” 40 and they were laughing at him. But he sent all of them out and he took the father of the girl and her mother and those who were with him and entered where the girl was laid. 41 And he took the hand of the girl and said to her, “[Young] girl, rise.” 42 And immediately the girl rose up and walked, for she was twelve years old. And they were amazed [with] great amazement. 43 And he commanded them very much that no one should make this known. And he said that they should give her [something] to eat.

MARK CHAPTER 6
And he went away from there and came to his city and his disciples were following him. And when it was the Shabtha, he began to teach in the synagogue. And many who heard were amazed and were saying, “Where [did] this man [learn] these [things]? And what is [this] wisdom that was given to him, that miracles such as these might be done by his hand? 3 Is this not the carpenter, the son of Maryam and the brother of Yaquv and of Yusi and of Yehudah and of Shimon? And behold, are not his sisters here with us?” And they were offended at him. 4 And Yeshue said to them, “There is no prophet who is dishonored, except in his own city and among
2 1

Page 41 of 276

his own relatives and in his own house.” 5 And he was not able to do even one miracle there, except that he laid his hand on a few sick and healed [them]. 6 And he was amazed by the lack of their faith. And he was traveling in the villages while teaching. 7 And he called his twelve and began to send them in pairs. And he gave them authority over unclean spirits, to cast [them] out. 8 And he commanded them that they should not carry anything for the journey, except only a staff, no bag and no bread and no brass in their purses, 9 but [that] they should wear sandals and not wear two coats.10 And he said to them, “Into that house, which you enter, there be until you leave there. 11 And whoever does not receive you and does not hear you when you leave from there, shake off the dust that is under the sole of your feet for their witness. And truly I say to you, it will be [more] pleasant for Sedum and for Amura in the day of judgment than for that city. 12 And they went out and preached that [men] should repent. 13 And many demons were cast out. And they were anointing with oil many sick [people] and were healing [them]. 14 And Herod, the king, heard about Yeshue, for his name was made known to him. And he was saying [that] Yukhanan the Immerser had risen from the dead, [and] because of this, miracles are done by him. 15 Others were saying that he was Eliya, and others that he was a prophet like one of the prophets. 16 Now when Herod heard [this] he said, “[It is] Yukhanan, the one whose head I cut off. He has risen from the dead.” 17 For Herod had sent [and] arrested Yukhanan and bound him [in] prison because of Herodias, the wife of Philip, his brother, whom he had taken. 18 For Yukhanan had told Herod, “It is unlawful for you to take the wife of your brother.” 19 Now Herodias was threatened by him and she wanted to kill him and was not able, 20 for Herod was afraid of Yukhanan, because he knew that he was a just and holy man. And he observed him, and [in] many [things] heard him and did [these things], and gladly heard him. 21 And there was a notable day when Herod made a banquet on his birthday for his nobles and chiliarchs and rulers of Galila. 22 And the daughter of Herodias entered [and] danced and pleased Herod and those who were sitting to eat with him. And the king said to the girl, “Ask me anything that you want and I will give [it] to you.” 23 And he swore to her, “Whatever you ask, I will give to you, up to half of my kingdom.” 24 And she went away and said to her mother, “What should I ask of him?” She said to her, “The head of Yukhanan the Immerser.” 25 And immediately she entered with care to the king and said to him, “I desire right now that you would give me on a platter the head of Yukhanan the Immerser.” 26 And it made the king very sad, but because of the oaths and because of the guests, he did not want to deny her. 27 But immediately the king sent the executioner and commanded that he should bring the head of Yukhanan. And he went [and] cut off the head of Yukhanan [in] prison. 28 And he brought [it] on a platter and gave [it] to the girl, and the girl gave [it] to her mother. 29 And his disciples heard and came [and] took his body and placed [it] in a grave. 30 And the apostles were gathered around Yeshue and told him everything they had done and everything they had learned. 31 And he said to them, “Come, let us go into the desert by ourselves and rest a little,” for there were many who were going and coming and they had no opportunity even to eat. 32 And they went away to a deserted place in a boat by themselves. 33 And many saw them as they were going away and recognized them. And they ran by land before him, from all the cities, to the place. 34 And Yeshue disembarked [and] saw the large crowds and had compassion on them because they were like sheep that did not have a shepherd. And he began to teach them many [things]. 35 And when the time grew late, his disciples came to him and said to him, “This is a barren place and the time is late. 36 Dismiss them to go to the surrounding fields and villages and let them buy bread for themselves, for they do not have anything to eat.” 37 But he said to them, “Give them to eat.” They said to him, “Should we go [and] buy bread [worth] two hundred denarii and give them to eat?” 38 And he said to them, “Go Page 42 of 276

[and] see how much bread you have here.” And when they saw, they said to him, “Five [loaves of] bread and two fish.” 39 And he commanded them to seat everyone by groups on the grass. 40 And they sat [to eat] by groups of hundreds and fifties. 41 And he took those five [loaves of] bread and two fish, and looked into heaven and blessed and broke the bread, and gave [it] to his disciples to place before them. And they distributed those two fish to all. 42 And all ate and were full. 43 And they took up the fragments [of bread] and of fish, twelve baskets full. 44 And those who ate bread were five thousand men. 45 And immediately he pressed his disciples to board a boat and to precede him to the opposite shore to Beth-Sayada while he dismissed the crowds. 46 And when he had dismissed them, he went to a mountain to pray. 47 And when evening came, the boat was in the middle of the sea and he [was] alone on the land. 48 And he saw them straining while rowing, for the wind was against them. And in the fourth watch of the night, Yeshue came to them, walking on the water. And he wanted to pass by them. 49 But they saw him walking on the water, and they thought to themselves that it was a false vision, and they cried out, 50 for all of them saw him and were afraid. And immediately he spoke with them and said to them, “Take courage, it is I. Do not be afraid.” 51 And he climbed into the boat with them and the wind ceased. And they were greatly amazed and astonished among themselves, 52 for they had not gained insight from that bread, because their heart was hardened. 53 And when they had crossed to the other side, they came to the land of Genesar. 54 And after they had disembarked from the boat, immediately the people of the place recognized him. 55 And they ran into that entire region and began to bring those who were very ill, carrying them on pallets to where they heard that he was. 56 And wherever he entered into the villages and cities, the sick were placed in the streets. and they were begging him that they might touch even the border of his clothes. And all those who touched him were healed.

MARK CHAPTER 7
And the Perishye and Saphrey gathered around him who came from Urishlem. 2 And they saw some of his disciples who were eating bread while their hands were not washed, and they complained. 3 For all the Yehudaye and the Perishye do not eat unless they wash their hands carefully, because they hold to the tradition of the elders. 4 And they do not eat [things] from the marketplace unless they are washed. And there are many other [traditions] that they have received to observe, washings of cups and of pots and of brass vessels and of beds. 5 And the Saphrey and the Perishye asked him, “Why do your disciples not walk according to the tradition of the elders, but they eat bread while their hands are not washed?” 6 And he said to them, “Well did Eshaya the prophet prophesy concerning you. Hypocrites! As it is written: This people honors me with its lips but their heart is very far from me. 7 And without results they reverence me while teaching the teachings of the commandments of men. 8 For you have left the commandment of Alaha and you have held to the tradition of men, washings of cups and of pots and many things that resemble these.” 9 He said to them, “Well did you reject the commandment of Alaha that you might establish your tradition.10 For Mushe said: Honor your father and your mother. And he who reviles father and mother should indeed die. 11 But you say [that] if a man should say to his father or to his mother, “My offering [is] what you have gained from me,” 12 then you allow him not to do anything for his father or his mother. 13 And you despise the word of Alaha because of the tradition that you have handed down and you do many [things] that Page 43 of 276
1

resemble these. 14 And Yeshue called to the entire crowd and said to them, “Hear me, all of you, and understand. 15 There is nothing that is outside of a man that enters him that is able [to] defile him. But what goes out from him, that defiles men. 16 He who has ears to hear should hear.” 17 And when Yeshue entered the house [away] from the crowd, his disciples asked him about that saying. 18 He said to them, “Are you likewise also slow to understand? Do you not know that everything that enters a man from the outside cannot defile him, 19 because it does not enter his heart, but into his stomach and is cast off by excretion, which purifies all the food? 20 But anything that goes out from a man, that defiles the man. 21 For from within, from the heart of men, evil thoughts proceed: adultery, fornication, theft, murder, 22 injustice, wickedness, deceit, filthiness, an evil eye, blasphemy, boastfulness, foolishness. 23 All these evils proceed from within and defile a man.” 24 From there Yeshue rose up and came to the border of Tsur and Tsaidan. And he entered a certain house. And he did not want anyone to know about him, yet he was not able to conceal [himself], 25 for immediately a certain woman, whose daughter had an unclean spirit, heard about him and came [and] fell down before his feet. 26 Now the woman was a foreigner from Phoenicia of Suriya, and she was begging him to cast out the demon from her daughter. 27 And Yeshue said to her, “Allow first the children to be satisfied, for it is not proper to take the bread of the children and to throw [it] to the dogs.” 28 And she answered and said to him, “Yes, my Lord. Yet even the dogs eat the crumbs of the children from under the tables.” 29 Yeshue said to her, “Go! Because of this saying, the demon has gone out from your daughter.” 30 And she went to her house and found her daughter lying on a pallet and her demon had left her. 31 Again Yeshue went out from the border of Tsur and Tsaidan and came to the Sea of Galila, on the border of the Decapolis. 32 And they brought him a certain deaf man, a stammerer, and were asking him to place a hand on him. 33 And he led him away from the crowd privately and placed his fingers in his ears and he spit and touched his tongue. 34 And he looked into heaven and sighed and said to him, “Be opened.” 35 And immediately his ears were opened and the restriction of his tongue was loosed and he spoke plainly. 36 And he admonished them not to tell anyone. And the more that he was admonishing them, the more they were proclaiming. 37 And they were exceedingly amazed and were saying, “He does everything well. He makes the deaf to hear, and those not speaking to speak.”

MARK CHAPTER 8
Now in those days when there was a large crowd and there was nothing to eat, he called his disciples and said to them, 2 “I have compassion on this crowd because, behold, they have remained with me three days and they do not have anything to eat. 3 And if I dismiss them to their homes while they are fasting, they will faint along the road, for some of them have come from far away.” 4 His disciples said to him, “[From] where can a man find here in the wilderness bread to satisfy all these [people]?” 5 And he asked them, “How many [loaves of] bread do you have?” They told him, “Seven.” 6 And he commanded the crowds to recline on the ground, and he took those seven [loaves of] bread and blessed and broke [them] and gave [them] to his disciples to set out, and they set [the food] before the crowds. 7 And there were a few fish and he also blessed them, and said to set them out. 8 And they ate and were satisfied. And they took up the remains of the fragments, seven baskets. 9 And the men who ate were about four thousand.10 And he dismissed them, and immediately boarded a boat with his disciples, and came to the Page 44 of 276
1

region of Dalmanutha. 11 And the Perishye came out and began to dispute with him. And they were asking him [for] a sign from heaven, tempting him. 12 And he sighed in his spirit and said, “Why does this generation seek a sign? Truly I say to you, a sign will not be given to this generation.” 13 And he left them and boarded a boat and they went to the other side. 14 And they forgot to take bread. And except [for] one loaf, there was nothing with them in the boat. 15 And he commanded them and said to them, “Watch out! Beware of the leaven of the Perishye and of the leaven of Herod.” 16 And they were reasoning with each other and saying, “[It is] because we have no bread.” 17 But Yeshue knew [this] and said to them, “Why are you thinking [it is] because you have no bread? Do you still not know and do you not understand? How long will you have a hard heart? 18 And you have eyes and you do not see, and you have ears and you do not hear, and you do not remember. 19 When I broke those five [loaves of] bread for the five thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They told him, “Twelve.” 20 He said to them, “And when seven [loaves] to the four thousand, how many baskets full of fragments did you take up?” They said, “Seven.” 21 He said to them, “Why is it [that] still you do not understand?” 22 And he came to Beth-Sayada. And they brought him a blind man and were begging him to touch him. 23 And he took the hand of the blind man and led him outside of the village. And he spat on his eyes and laid his hand [on him] and asked him what he saw. 24 And he looked and said, “I see men as trees that are walking.” 25 Again he laid his hand on his eyes and he was restored and was seeing everything clearly. 26 And he sent him to his house and said, “Neither enter the village nor tell anyone in the village.” 27 And Yeshue and his disciples went out to the villages of Caesarea Philippi. And he was asking his disciples along the way and said to them, “What do men say about me, who I am?” 28 And they said, “Yukhanan the Immerser, and others Eliya, and others, one of the prophets. 29 Yeshue said to them, “But what do you say about me, who I am?” Shimon answered and said to him, “You are Meshikha, the Son of the living Alaha.” 30 And he charged them not to tell anyone about him. 31 And he began to teach them that the Son of Man would suffer much, and be rejected by the elders and by the chief priests and by the Saphrey, and be killed and after three days, rise up. 32 And he was speaking publicly [about this] matter. And Kipha took him and began to rebuke him. 33 But he turned and looked at his disciples and rebuked Shimon and said, “Go behind me, Satan, because you do not think about [the things] of Alaha, but [the things] of men!” 34 And Yeshue called the crowds with his disciples and said to them, “He who wants to follow me should deny himself and take up his cross and follow me. 35 For everyone who wants to save his soul will lose it. And anyone who will lose his soul because of me and because of my gospel will save it. 36 For what is a man profited if he should gain the entire world and should lose his soul? 37 Or what will a man give in exchange of his soul? 38 For anyone who is ashamed of me and my words in this sinful and adulterous generation, the Son of Man will also be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with his holy angels.”

MARK CHAPTER 9
And he was saying to them, “Truly I say to you, there are some that are standing here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of Alaha that has come in power.” 2 And after six days, Yeshue led Kipha and Yaquv and Yukhanan and took them up into a high mountain privately and he was changed before their eyes. 3 And his clothing was bright and became very Page 45 of 276
1

white like snow, such that men are not able to make white on earth. 4 And Eliya and Mushe were seen by them, speaking with Yeshue. 5 And Kipha said to him, “My Master, it is good for us to be here. And let us make three booths, one for you and one for Mushe and one for Eliya.” 6 And he did not know what he was saying, for they were in fear. 7 And a cloud came and overshadowed them, and a voice [came] from the cloud that said, “This is my beloved Son; hear him.” 8 And suddenly, when the disciples looked up, they did not see anyone except Yeshue only with them. 9 And while they were descending from the mountain, he was commanding them that they should not tell anyone what they saw until after the Son of Man had risen from the dead. 10 And they kept the saying to themselves and were inquiring, “What is this saying, “When he is raised from the dead?”“ 11 And they were asking him and saying, “Why then do the Saphrey say that Eliya must come first?” 12 He said to them, “Eliya will come first in order to prepare everything and as it is written about the Son of Man: He will suffer much and be rejected. 13 But I say to you, indeed Eliya has come and they did with him whatever they desired, as it was written about him.” 14 And when he came to the disciples, he saw a large crowd with them and the Saphrey disputing with them. 15 And immediately all the crowds saw him and were amazed, and they ran [and] greeted him. 16 And he asked the Saphrey, “What are you disputing with them?” 17 And one of the crowd answered and said, “Teacher, I brought my son to you, because he has a spirit that does not speak. 18 And sometimes it grabs him, it knocks him down and he foams and gnashes his teeth and he languishes. And I asked your disciples to cast it out, and they were not able.” 19 Yeshue answered and said to him, “Oh faithless generation! How long must I be with you and how long must I endure you? Bring him to me.” 20 And they brought him to him. And when the spirit saw him, immediately it knocked him down and he fell on the ground and was violently shaken, and he foamed. 21 And Yeshue asked his father, “How long [has it been] since [he was] this way?” He said to him, “Since his youth. 22 And many times it has thrown him into the fire and into the water to destroy him, but whatever you are able [to do], help me and have compassion on me.” 23 Yeshue said to him, “If you are able to believe, everything will be possible to him who believes.” 24 And immediately the father of the boy cried out, mourning, and said, “I believe, my Lord! Help the lack of my faith.” 25 And when Yeshue saw that the people ran and gathered about him, he rebuked that unclean spirit and said to it, “Dumb spirit that does not speak, I command you, come out of him and do not enter him again.” 26 And that demon cried out and he bruised him much and came out. And he was like a dead man, so that many said, “He is dead.” 27 But Yeshue took him by his hand and raised him up. 28 Now when Yeshue entered the house, his disciples asked him privately, “Why were we not able to cast it out?” 29 He said to them, “This kind cannot be cast out by anything except by fasting and by prayer.” 30 And when he went away from there, they were passing through Galila. And he did not want anyone to know about him, 31 For he was teaching his disciples and said to them, “The Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men, and they will kill him, and after he has been killed, on the third day he will rise up.” 32 And they did not understand the meaning, yet were afraid to ask him. 33 And they came to Kepharnakhum and when they had entered the house, he asked them, “What were you discussing among yourselves on the way?” 34 But they were silent, for they were arguing on the way with each other, who was the greater among them. 35 And Yeshue sat down and called the twelve and said to them, “He who wants to be first should be the last of all men and a servant of all men.” 36 And he took a certain child and set him in the middle [of them] and took him into his arms and said to them, 37 Whoever receives like this child in my name receives me. And he who receives me does not receive me, but him who sent me. 38 Yukhanan said to him, “My Master, we saw a man who was casting out demons in your name and we stopped him, Page 46 of 276

because he did not follow us.” 39 Yeshue said to them, “Do not stop him, for there is no one who does miracles in my name and is readily able [to] speak wickedly about me. 40 Therefore, he who is not against you is for you. 41 But anyone who gives you only a cup of water to drink because you are in the name of Meshikha, truly I say to you, “he will not lose his reward.” 42 And whoever causes one of these little ones who believe in me to stumble, it would be better for him if the millstone of a donkey were placed on his neck and he were thrown into the sea. 43 Now if your hand offends you, cut it off. It is better for you to enter life maimed, than although you have two hands, to go to Gehenna, 44 where their worm does not die and their fire does not go out. 45 And if your foot offends you, cut if off. It is better for you to enter life lame, than although you have two feet, to fall in Gehenna, 46 where their worm does not die and their fire does not go out. 47 And if your eye offends you, pick it out. It is better for you to enter into the kingdom of Alaha with one of your eye[s], than although you have two eyes, to fall in the Gehenna of fire, 48 where their worm does not die and their fire does not go out. 49 For everything will be salted with fire and every sacrifice will be salted with salt. 50 Salt is good, but if the salt should lose its flavor, with what will it be salted? Let salt be in you, and be in harmony with each other.”

MARK CHAPTER 10
And he rose up from there and came to the border of Yehuda to the crossing of the Yurdinan and large crowds went there with him. And he was teaching them again, as he was accustomed. 2 And the Perishye approached, tempting him, and were asking if it was lawful for a man to divorce his wife. 3 He said to them, “What did Mushe command you?” 4 And they said, “Mushe allowed us to write a decree of divorce and to send [her] away.” 5 Yeshue answered and said to them, “In contrast to the hardness of your heart, he wrote this commandment for you, 6 but from the beginning Alaha made them male and female. 7 Because of this, a man will leave his father and his mother and join to his wife 8 and the two of them will become one flesh. So then, they are not two, but one flesh. 9 Therefore, that which Alaha has joined together, man should not separate.”10 And his disciples asked him again in the house about this [matter]. 11 And he said to them, “Whoever dismisses his wife and takes another commits adultery. 12 And if a woman should dismiss her husband and be [a wife] to another, she commits adultery.” 13 And children were approaching him so that he would touch them, but his disciples were rebuking those who were bringing them. 14 And Yeshue saw [it] and was offended and said to them, “Allow the children [to] come to me and do not hinder them, for because of those who are as these are, the kingdom of Alaha exists. 15 Truly I say to you, anyone who does not receive the kingdom of Alaha like a child will not enter it.” 16 And he took them into his arms and placed his hand on them and blessed them. 17 And while he was traveling on the road, a certain [man] ran [and] fell on his knees and asked him and said, “Good teacher, what should I do to gain eternal life?” 18 Yeshue said to him, “Why do you call me good? There is no [one] good, except one, Alaha. 19 You know the commandments: Do not commit adultery, do not steal, do not kill and do not bear false witness, do not defraud, honor your father and your mother.” 20 And he answered and said to him, “Teacher, I have kept all of these [things] from my youth.” 21 And Yeshue looked at him and loved him and said to him, “You lack one [thing]. Go [and] sell everything that you have and give to the poor and you will have treasure in heaven and take up your cross and follow me.” 22 And he was sad at this saying and went away, being grieved, for he had many Page 47 of 276
1

possessions. 23 And Yeshue looked at his disciples and said to them, “How difficult [it is] for those who have possessions to enter the kingdom of Alaha.” 24 And the disciples were wondering at his words, and Yeshue answered again and said to them, “My sons, how difficult [it is] for those who trust in their possessions to enter the kingdom of Alaha. 25 It is easier for a rope to enter through the eye of the needle than [for] a rich man to enter the kingdom of Alaha.” 26 And they were all the more wondering and saying among them selves, “Who is able to [gain] life?” 27 And Yeshue looked at them and said to them, “With men this is not possible, but with Alaha [it is]. For everything is possible with Alaha.” 28 And Kipha began to say, “Behold, we have left everything and followed you.” 29 Yeshue answered and said, “Truly I say to you, there is no man who has left houses or brothers or sisters or father or mother or wife or children or fields because of me and because of my gospel, 30 and will not receive a hundredth part now in this time, houses and brothers and sisters and mothers and children and fields with persecution. Yet in the age to come, [he will receive] eternal life. 31 And [there will be] many first who will be last, and last, first.” 32 And while they were climbing up on the road to Urishlem, Yeshue was before them. And they were amazed and were following him, although they were afraid. And he took his twelve and began to tell them what would happen to him. 33 “Behold, we will go up to Urishlem, and the Son of Man will be delivered to the chief priests and to the Saphrey, and they will condemn him to death and deliver him to the Gentiles. 34 And they will mock him and beat him and spit in his face and kill him and on the third day, he will rise up.” 35 And Yaquv and Yukhanan, the sons of Zabedai, approached him and said to him, “Teacher, we want you to do for us all that we ask.” 36 He said to them, “What do you want me to do for you?” 37 They said to him, “Grant us that one sit on your right and one on your left in your glory.” 38 But he said to them, “You do not know what you ask. Are you able to drink the cup that I drink and to be immersed with the immersion [with] which I am immersed?” 39 They said to him, “We are able.” Yeshue said to them, “The cup that I drink, you will drink, and the immersion [with] which I am immersed, you will be immersed, 40 but that you may sit at my right and at my left is not mine to give, except to those for whom it is prepared.” 41 And when the ten heard [it], they began murmuring against Yaquv and Yukhanan. 42 And Yeshue called them and said to them, “You know that those who are counted as chiefs of the nations are their lords and their great men are in authority over them. 43 But it should not be so among you, but rather he who wants to be great among you should be a minister to you. 44 And whoever of you wants to be first should be a servant of everyone. 45 For even the Son of Man did not come to be served, but rather to serve and to give himself [as] a ransom for many.” 46 And they came to Irikhu. And when Yeshue went out from Irikhu and his disciples and a large crowd, Timai, Bar-Timai, a blind man, was sitting by the side of the road and begging. 47 And he heard that it was Yeshue the Natsraya and he began to cry out and to say, “Son of Dawid, have compassion on me.” 48 Many were reproving him to be silent, but he was crying out all the more and said, “Son of Dawid, have compassion on me.” 49 And Yeshue stopped and commanded that they call him. And they called the blind man and said to him, “Take courage [and] rise up. He calls you.” 50 And the blind man threw off his garment and rose up [and] came to Yeshue. 51 Yeshue said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And the blind man said to him, “My Master, that I may see.” 52 And Yeshue said to him, “See! Your faith has made you whole.” And immediately he received sight and went on [his] way.

And when he came near to Urishlem by the side of Beth-Pageh and Beth-Naiya toward the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples 2 and said to them, “Go to that village opposite us. And immediately when you enter it, you will find a colt that is tied that no man has ridden. Untie [it] [and] bring it. 3 And if anyone should say to you, “Why are you doing this?” say to him, “It is necessary for our Lord,” and immediately he will send it here.” 4 And they went [and] found a colt that was tied at the door outside on the street. And while they were untying it, 5 some of those who were standing [there] said to them, “What are you doing untying the colt?” 6 And they said to them as Yeshue had commanded them and they allowed them. 7 And they brought the colt to Yeshue and placed their garments on it and Yeshue rode on it. 8 And many were spreading their garments on the road and others were cutting branches from trees and spreading [them] on the road. 9 And those who were before him and those who were behind him were crying out and saying: “Hosanna! Blessed is he who comes in the name of Marya.10 And blessed is the kingdom of our father Dawid that is coming! Hosanna on high! 11 And Yeshue entered Urishlem [and] the temple and saw everything. And when evening time came, he went out to Beth-Naiya with the twelve. 12 And on the next day, when he went out from Beth-Naiya, he was hungry. 13 And he saw a certain fig tree from a distance that had leaves on it. And he came to it [to see] if he could find anything on it. And when he arrived, he did not find [anything] on it except leaves, for the time of figs had not [yet] come. 14 And he said to it, “Now and forever man will not eat fruit from you.” And his disciples heard [it]. And they came to Urishlem. 15 And Yeshue entered the temple of Alaha and began to drive out those who were buying and selling in the temple. And he turned over the tables of the moneychangers and the seats of those who were selling doves. 16 And he did not allow anyone to carry goods inside the temple. 17 And he was teaching and said to them, “Is it not written: My house will be called a house of prayer for all nations? But you have made it a den of robbers.” 18 And the chief priests and Saphrey heard [it] and were seeking how they might destroy him, for they were afraid of him because all the people were astonished at his teaching. 19 And when it was evening, they went out of the city. 20 And in the morning while they were passing by, they saw that fig tree dried up from its root. 21 And Shimon remembered and said to him, “My Master, behold, that fig tree that you cursed has dried up.” 22 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “You should have faith of Alaha. 23 For truly I say to you, whoever says to this mountain, “Be lifted up and fall into the sea,” and is not divided in his heart, but believes that what he said will happen, he will have what he said. 24 Because of this, I say to you, everything that you pray and you ask [for], believe that you will receive [it], and you will have [it]. 25 And when you stand to pray, forgive anything that you have against anyone, so that your Father, who is in heaven, will also forgive you your transgressions. 26 And if you do not forgive, neither will your Father who is in heaven forgive you your transgressions.” 27 And they came again to Urishlem. And while he was walking in the temple, the chief priests and Saphrey and elders came to him. 28 And they said to him, “With what authority do you do these [things]? And who gave you this authority to do these [things]?” 29 And Yeshue said to them, “I will ask you also a certain question that you might answer me. And I will tell you with what authority I do these [things]. 30 The immersion of Yukhanan, from where was it, from heaven or from men? Tell me.” 31 And they reasoned among themselves and said, “If we say to him that [it was] from heaven, he will say to us, “Then why did you not believe him?” 32 And [if] we say from men, there is the fear of the people, for all of them were regarding Yukhanan to be truly a prophet.” 33 And they answered and said to Yeshue, “We do not know.” He said to them, Page 49 of 276

“Neither will I tell you by what authority I do these [things].”

MARK CHAPTER 12
And he began to speak with them in parables. “A certain man planted a vineyard and surrounded it [with] a hedge, and dug a wine press in it, and built a tower in it, and handed it over to workers and went on a journey. 2 And in time he sent his servant to the workers to receive from the fruit of the vineyard. 3 But they beat him and sent him away empty. 4 And he sent again to them another servant and they also stoned and wounded that one and they sent him away in shame. 5 And he sent again another also, whom they killed. And he sent many other servants and they beat some and killed some. 6 And [at] the end, he had one beloved son and he sent him to them finally, for he said, “Perhaps they will respect my son.” 7 But those workers said among themselves, “This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and the inheritance will be ours.” 8 And they took [and] killed him and they drove him outside of the vineyard. 9 What then will the lord of the vineyard do? He will come to destroy those workers and give the vineyard to others. 10 And have you not even read this scripture: The stone that the builders rejected has become the head of the corner? 11 This came from the presence of Marya and it is a wonder in our eyes.” 12 And they sought to arrest him, yet they were afraid of the people, for they knew that he spoke this parable about them, and they left him and went away. 13 And they sent him some of the Saphrey and [some] of the Herodians to ensnare him in speech. 14 And they came and asked him, “Teacher, we know that you are true and [that] you are not moved by anyone, for you do not look on the faces of men, but in truth you teach the way of Alaha. Is it lawful to give the poll tax to Caesar or not? Should we give or should we not give [it]? 15 But he knew their trickery and said to them, “Why do you tempt me? Bring me a denarius to see.” 16 And they brought [one] to him. He said to them, “Whose image and inscription is this?” And they said, “Caesar’s.” 17 Yeshue said to them, “That which is of Caesar give to Caesar and that which is of Alaha to Alaha.” And they were marveling at him. 18 And the Zaduqaye came to him, those who say that there is no resurrection, and were asking him and saying, 19 “Teacher, Mushe wrote to us: If the brother of a man dies and leaves a wife and does not leave sons, his brother should take his wife and raise up seed for his brother. 20 There were seven brothers. The first took a wife and died and did not leave [any] seed. 21 And the second took her and died, although also he did not leave [any] seed, and the third likewise. 22 And the seven of them took her and did not leave [any] seed. Last of all of them, the wife also died. 23 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife will she be? For the seven of them took her.” 24 Yeshue said to them, “Is it not because of this you err? For you do not know the scriptures nor the power of Alaha. 25 For when they rise up from the dead, they do not marry women nor are women with men, but rather they are as the angels that are in heaven. 26 Now about the dead who will rise up, have you not read in the book of Mushe how Alaha spoke to him from the bush: I am the Alaha of Avraham and the Alaha of Iskhaq and the Alaha of Yaquv? 27 And he is not the Alaha of the dead, but of the living. Therefore you err greatly.” 28 And one of the Saphrey approached and heard them disputing and saw that he answered the matter well for them. And he asked, “What is the most important commandment?” 29 Yeshue said to him, “The most important of all the commandments [is]: Hear, Israyel, Marya our Alaha is one Marya 30 and you should love Marya your Alaha with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind and with all your might. This is the most important Page 50 of 276

commandment. 31 And the second that is like it [is]: You should love your neighbor as yourself. There is no other commandment that is greater than these.” 32 The Saphra said to him, “Well [said], my Master. You have spoken in truth, because he is one and there are no others outside of him. 33 And that a man should love him with all the heart and with all the mind and with all the soul and with all might, and that he should love his neighbor as himself, greater is [this] than all the burnt offerings and sacrifices.” 34 And Yeshue saw that he responded to the matter wisely. He answered and said to him, “You are not far from the kingdom of Alaha.” And no man dared to question him again. 35 And Yeshue answered and said while [he was] teaching in the temple, “In what way do the Saphrey say that Meshikha is the Son of Dawid? 36 For Dawid spoke by the Rukha d’Qudsha: Marya said to my Lord, sit on my right [hand] until I place your enemies [as] a footstool under your feet. 37 Since Dawid called him, “My Lord,” then how is he his Son?” And the whole crowd was hearing him gladly. 38 And in his teaching he was saying to them, “Beware of the Saphrey who want to walk in robes and love a greeting in the streets 39 and the chief seats in the synagogues and the chief places at banquets, 40 those who devour the house of widows with the pretext that they lengthen their prayers. Those will receive the greater judgment.” 41 And when Yeshue sat near the treasury, he considered how the crowds were putting money into the treasury. And many rich men were putting in much. 42 And a certain poor widow came [and] put in two lepta that are very small coins. 43 And Yeshue called his disciples and said to them, “Truly I say to you, this poor widow has put in more than everyone who has put in the treasury. 44 For all of them put in from what abounded to them, but this one, from her need, put in everything that she had, her entire wealth.”

MARK CHAPTER 13
And when Yeshue went out from the temple, one of his disciples said to him, “Teacher, behold, look at those stones and those buildings.” 2 But Yeshue said to him, “Do you see these great buildings? One stone on another will not be left here that will not be torn down.” 3 And while Yeshue sat on the Mount of Olives opposite the temple, Kipha and Yaquv and Yukhanan and Andrew asked him privately, 4 Tell us when these [things] will be. And what [is] the sign when all these [things] are close to being fulfilled? 5 And Yeshue began to say to them, “Beware, so that no one will deceive you. 6 For many will come in my name and say, “I am [he],” and will deceive many. 7 But when you hear of wars and a rumor of battles, do not be afraid, for it is about to occur, but the end [is] not yet. 8 For people will rise up against people and kingdom against kingdom. And there will be earthquakes in various places and there will be famines and riots. These [things] are the beginning of sorrows. 9 But watch out for yourselves, for they will deliver you to the judges, and in the synagogues you will be beaten, and you will stand before kings and governors because of me, as a testimony to them.10 But first my gospel will be preached among all the nations. 11 And when they bring you to deliver you up, do not be anxious beforehand about what you will say or think, but what is given to you at that moment, that speak. For you are not speaking, but the Rukha d’Qudsha. 12 And brother will deliver his brother to death and a father his son and children will rise up against their parents and will put them to death. 13 And you will be hated by all men because of my name. But he who endures until the end will live. 14 And when you see the abominable sign of desecration that was spoken of by Danieil the prophet that will stand where it should not be (he who reads should understand) then Page 51 of 276

those who are in Yehudah should flee to the mountain. 15 And he who is on the roof should not come down nor enter to take anything from his house. 16 And he who is in the field should not turn back to pick up his clothing. 17 And woe to pregnant women and to those who are nursing in those days! 18 Now pray, so that your flight will not be in winter. 19 For an ordeal will come in those days such as has not occurred from the beginning of the creation that Alaha created until now, nor will be [again]. 20 And if Marya had not shortened those days, no flesh would live. But because of the chosen [ones] that he chose, he shortened those days. 21 Then, if anyone says to you, “Behold, here is Meshikha and behold, [over] here,” do not believe [him]. 22 For false meshikhas and lying prophets will rise up and they will produce signs and wonders and will deceive even the chosen [ones], if possible. 23 But watch out! Behold, I have told you everything beforehand. 24 And in those days after that ordeal, the sun will darken and the moon will not give its light. 25 And the stars will fall from heaven and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 26 And then they will see the Son of Man coming in the clouds with great power and with glory. 27 Then he will send his angels and gather his chosen [ones] from the four winds, from one end of the earth to the end of heaven. 28 Now learn an illustration from the fig tree that when its branches are tender and its leaves bud, you know that summer has arrived. 29 So also, when you have seen these [things] that are going to be, know that it is near, at the door. 30 Truly I say to you, this family will not pass away until all these [things] occur. 31 Heaven and earth will pass away, yet my words will not pass away. 32 But about that day and about that hour, no man knows, not even the angels of heaven, nor the Son, but only the Father. 33 Watch, be alert and pray, for you do not know when the time is. 34 For [it is] like a man who went on a journey and left his house and gave authority to his servants and to each man his work, and commanded the porter to be alert. 35 Be alert, therefore, because you do not know when the lord of the house will come, in the evening or in the middle of the night or at the rooster crow or in the morning, 36 lest he comes suddenly and finds you sleeping. 37 Now what I say to you, I say to all of you: “Be alert.”“

MARK CHAPTER 14
Now after two days was the Petskha of the unleavened bread, and the chief priests and Saphrey were seeking how they might arrest [him] with trickery and kill him. 2 And they were saying, “Not during the feast, so that a riot will not occur among the people.” 3 And while he was in Beth-Naiya in the house of Shimon the jar-maker while reclining, a woman came who had near her an alabaster box of perfume of spikenard, the best, very costly, and she opened it and poured it on the head of Yeshue. 4 And there were some of the disciples who were offended among themselves and said, “Why was [there] the waste of this perfume? 5 For it was possible to be sold [for] more than three hundred denarii and be given to the poor.” And they were angry with him. 6 But Yeshue said, “Leave her alone. Why are you troubling her? She has done a proper act for me. 7 For you always have the poor with you, and whenever you want, you are able to do for them what is proper, but I am not always with you. 8 She did this of what she had and she has perfumed my body as for burial beforehand. 9 And truly I say to you, wherever this, my gospel, is preached in all the world, also the thing that she has done will be spoken for her remembrance.”10 And Yehudah Sekariuta, one of the twelve, went to the chief priests to betray Yeshue to them. 11 And they, when they heard [him], rejoiced and promised to give him money. And he was seeking for himself an opportunity to betray him. 12 And on the first day of Page 52 of 276
1

unleavened bread on which the Yehudaye slay the Petskha, his disciples were saying to him, “Where do you want us to go to prepare for you to eat the Petskha?” 13 And he sent two of his disciples and said to them, “Go to the city and behold, a man who is carrying a vessel of water will meet you. Follow him. 14 And wherever he enters, say to the lord of the house, “Our Master said, where is the guest house where I may eat the Petskha with my disciples?” 15 And behold, he will show you a large upper room that is furnished and prepared. There make ready for us.” 16 And his disciples went out and came to the city and found as he had said to them and they prepared the Petskha. 17 And when evening came, he came with his twelve. 18 And while they were reclining and eating, Yeshue said, “Truly I say to you, one of you who eats with me will betray me.” 19 And they began to be grieved and were saying to him, one by one, “Is it I?” 20 And he said to them, “[It is] one of the twelve who dips with me in the dish. 21 And the Son of Man will die as it is written about him. But woe to that man by whose hand the Son of Man is delivered up! It would be better for that man if he had not been born.” 22 And while they were eating, Yeshue took bread and blessed [it] and broke [it] and gave [it] to them. And he said to them, “Take, this is my body.” 23 And he took a cup and gave thanks and blessed [it] and gave [it] to them, and they all drank from it. 24 And he said to them, “This is my blood of the new covenant that is shed on behalf of many. 25 Truly I say to you, I will not drink again from the fruit of the vine until that day in which I will drink it anew in the kingdom of Alaha.” 26 And they offered praise and went out to the Mount of Olives. 27 And Yeshue said to them, “All of you will be offended at me in this night, for it is written: I will strike the shepherd and his lambs will be scattered. 28 But when I have risen, I will go before you into Galila.” 29 Kipha said to him, “Though all of them be offended, I [will] not [be].” 30 Yeshue said to him, “Truly I say to you, today in this night, before the rooster will crow two times, you will deny me three [times].” 31 And all the more he was saying, “If I must die with you, I will not deny you, my Lord.” And all of the disciples also spoke likewise. 32 And they came to a place that was called Gadsiman, and he said to his disciples, “Sit here while I pray.” 33 And he took with him Kipha and Yaquv and Yukhanan and began to be sad and to grieve. 34 And he said to them, “It is grievous to my soul unto death. Remain here and be watchful.” 35 And he went on a little and fell on the ground and was praying that if it was possible, [this] hour might pass from him. 36 And he said, “Father, my Father, you can [do] everything. Make this cup pass from me. Yet not my own will, but yours.” 37 And he came [and] found them sleeping. And he said to Kipha, “Shimon, are you sleeping? Are you not able to be watchful for one hour? 38 Be watchful and pray, so that you might not enter into temptation. The spirit is willing and ready, but the body is weak.” 39 And he went again [and] prayed and he said the same thing. 40 And he returned [and] came [and] again found them sleeping, because their eyes were heavy, and they did not know what to say to him. 41 And he came a third time and said to them, “Sleep now, and rest. The end has arrived and the hour has come and behold, the Son of Man is delivered into the hands of sinners. 42 Rise up, let us go. Behold, he who has delivered me draws near.” 43 And while he was speaking, Yehudah Sekariuta, one of the twelve, and many people with swords and rods, came from being with the chief priests and Saphrey and elders. 44 And the traitor who betrayed [him] had given them a sign and had said, “Whomever I kiss is he. Arrest him securely and take him away.” 45 And immediately he drew near and said to him, “My Master, my Master,” and he kissed him. 46 And they placed [their] hands on him and arrested him. 47 And one of those who were standing [there] drew a sword and struck the servant of the high priest and took off his ear. 48 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “Do you come out as against a robber with swords and rods to arrest me? 49 Every day I was with you while I was teaching in the temple and you did not arrest me. But this has Page 53 of 276

occurred that the scriptures would be fulfilled.” 50 Then his disciples left him and fled. 51 And a certain young man followed him, and a linen cloth was wrapped around [his] naked [body], and they grabbed him. 52 And he left the linen cloth and fled naked. 53 And they took Yeshue to Qayapha, the high priest, and all the chief priests and Saphrey and elders were gathered with him. 54 And Shimon was following him from a distance as far as the inside of the courtyard of the high priest. And he was sitting with the servants and was warming [himself] near the fire. 55 And the chief priests and all their assembly were seeking testimony against Yeshue, so that they might kill him, but they did not find [any]. 56 For although many were testifying against him, their testimony was not agreeing. 57 And some false witnesses stood up against him and said, 58 “We heard him when he said, “I will destroy this temple that was made with hands, and after three days I will build another that is not made with hands.”“ 59 But even so, their testimony was not agreeing. 60 And the high priest stood up in the middle [of them] and questioned Yeshue and said, “Do you not answer the accusation? Why are they testifying these [things] against you?” 61 But he was silent and did not answer him anything. And again the high priest questioned him and said, “Are you Meshikha, the Son of the Blessed One?” 62 And Yeshue said to him, “I am. And you will see the Son of Man when he sits on the right [hand] of power and comes on the clouds of heaven.” 63 And the high priest tore his robe and said, “Why now are we seeking witnesses? 64 Behold, from his mouth you have heard blasphemy. What do you think?” And all of them judged that he was deserving of death. 65 And some began spitting in his face. And they covered his face and were striking him and saying, “Prophesy!” And the guards were striking him on his cheeks. 66 And while Shimon was below in the courtyard, a certain maiden of the high priest came. 67 She saw him while he was warming [himself] and she looked at him and said to him, “And you also were with Yeshue the Natsraya.” 68 But he denied [it] and said, “I do not know what you are saying.” And he went outside to the porch and the rooster crowed. 69 And again the maiden saw him and she began to tell those who were standing [there], “This one also is one of them.” 70 But again he denied [it]. And after a little [time] again those who were standing [there] said to Kipha, “Truly you are one of them, for you are also a Galilaya and your speech is like [theirs].” 71 And he began to curse and swore, “I do not know this man of whom you speak!” 72 And immediately, the rooster crowed the second time, and Shimon remembered the saying of Yeshue, who had said to him, “Before the rooster crows two times, you will deny me three [times],” and he began to cry.

MARK CHAPTER 15
And immediately in the morning the chief priests took counsel with the elders and with the Saphrey and with the entire assembly. And they bound Yeshue and led him away. And they delivered him to Pilate. 2 And Pilate asked him, “Are you the king of the Yehudaye?” And he answered and said to him, “You have said [it].” 3 And the chief priests were accusing him of many things. 4 And Pilate again asked him and said to him, “Will you not answer the accusation? See how many are testifying against you!” 5 But Yeshue did not give any answer, so that Pilate was amazed. 6 Now he was accustomed during every feast to release one prisoner to them, whomever they requested. 7 And there was one who was called Bar-Aba who was a prisoner with the ones who had caused an insurrection, those who had committed murder in the insurrection. 8 And the people cried out and began to request he do [this] for them as he was accustomed. 9 But Page 54 of 276
1

Pilate answered and said, “Do you want me to release to you the king of the Yehudaye?”10 (For Pilate knew that the chief priests had delivered him up out of envy.) 11 And the chief priests all the more exhorted the crowds [to ask] that he should release Bar-Aba to them. 12 And Pilate said to them, “What then do you want me to do to this one whom you call king of the Yehudaye?” 13 And again they cried out, “Crucify him!” 14 And Pilate said to them, “What evil has he done?” And they were crying out all the more, “Crucify him!” 15 And Pilate wanted to do the will of the crowds and he released Bar-Aba to them and he delivered Yeshue to them, after he had scourged [him], to be crucified. 16 And the soldiers led him away inside the hall that was the Praetorium, and they called the whole company of soldiers. 17 And they put purple clothes on him and wove [and] placed on him a crown of thorns. 18 And they began to salute him [with], “Hail, king of the Yehudaye.” 19 And they were striking him on his head with a reed and were spitting in his face and were kneeling on their knees and bowing to him. 20 And after they had mocked him, they stripped off the purple clothes and put on his own garments and took him out to crucify him. 21 And they compelled one who was passing by, Shimon, a Cyrenian, who had come from the country, the father of Alexander and of Rufus, to carry his cross. 22 And they brought him to Gagulta, the place that is interpreted, The Skull. 23 And they gave him wine in which was mixed myrrh to drink, but he did not take [it]. 24 And after they had crucified him, they divided his garments and cast lots for them, what each should take. 25 And it was the third hour when they crucified him. 26 And the cause of his death was written in the inscription, “This is the king of the Yehudaye.” 27 And they crucified with him two robbers, one on his right and one on his left. 28 And the scripture was fulfilled that said: He was counted with the wicked. 29 And also those who were passing by were reviling him and shaking their heads and saying, “Oh indeed! [He said] he will destroy the temple and build it after three days. 30 Save yourself and come down from the cross.” 31 And likewise also the chief priests and the Saphrey were laughing with each other and saying, “Others he saved. Himself he is not able to save. 32 Let Meshikha, the King of Israyel, come down now from the cross that we might see and believe in him.” And those also who were crucified with him were reviling him. 33 And when the sixth hour came, there was darkness over all the land until the ninth hour. 34 And in the ninth hour Yeshue cried out with a loud voice and said, “Eil, Eil, lmana shavaqtani,” which is [interpreted], “My Alaha, my Alaha, why have you left me?” 35 And some of those who were standing [there] who heard were saying, “He calls to Eliya.” 36 And one ran and filled a sponge [with] vinegar and fastened [it] on a reed to give him to drink. And they said, “Leave [him]! Let us see if Eliya will come to take him down.” 37 And Yeshue cried out with a loud voice and died. 38 And the veil of the temple was torn into two [pieces], from the top to the bottom. 39 Now when the centurion who was standing near him saw that he cried out so and died, he said, “Truly this man was the Son of Alaha.” 40 And there were also women who were watching from afar, Maryam Magdelaita and Maryam the mother of Yaquv the less and of Yusi and Shalum, 41 those who, when he was in Galila, were following him and ministering to him, and many others who had gone up with him to Urishlem. 42 And when the evening of the preparation had come, that was before the Shabtha, 43 Yauseph who was from Ramtha, an honorable counselor who also was waiting for the kingdom of Alaha, came and was bold and approached Pilate and requested the body of Yeshue. 44 And Pilate marveled that he had already died. And he called the centurion and asked him if he had already died. 45 And when he learned [it], he gave his body to Yauseph. 46 And Yauseph bought linen cloth and took him down and wrapped him in it and placed him in a grave that was hewn out in the rock and he rolled a stone on the door of the grave. 47 And Maryam Magdelaita and Maryam the [mother] of Yusi saw where he was laid. Page 55 of 276

MARK CHAPTER 16
And when the Shabtha had passed, Maryam Magdelaita and Maryam [the mother] of Yaquv and Shalum bought spices that they might come to anoint him. 2 And early on the first [day] of the week, they came to the tomb while the sun was rising. 3 And they were saying among themselves, “Who [will] roll the stone from the door of the tomb for us?” 4 And they looked [and] saw that the stone was rolled away, for it was very great. 5 And they entered the tomb and saw a young man who was sitting on the right [side] and wrapped around [him] was a white robe, and they were amazed. 6 And he said to them, “Do not be afraid. You seek Yeshue the Natsraya who was crucified. He has risen. He is not here. Behold the place where he was laid. 7 But go [and] tell his disciples and Kipha that behold, [he goes] before you to Galila. There you will see him as he said to you.” 8 And when they had heard, they fled and went out of the grave, for amazement and trembling had taken hold on them and they did not speak anything to anyone, for they were afraid. 9 And early on the first of the week he had risen and appeared first to Maryam Magdelaita from whom he had cast out seven demons.10 And she went [and] brought hope to those who had been with him who were mourning and weeping. 11 And when they heard what they were saying, that he was alive and had appeared to them, they did not believe them. 12 After these [things] he appeared to two of them in another form while they were walking and traveling to a village. 13 And those went [and] told the rest. They did not even believe them. 14 And finally he appeared to the eleven while they were eating. And he reproved the lack of their faith and the hardness of their heart, since they had not believed those who had seen that he had risen. 15 And he said to them, “Go to all the world and preach my gospel in all of creation. 16 Whoever believes and is immersed will live, and whoever does not believe is condemned. 17 And these signs will follow those who believe. In my name they will cast out demons and they will speak with new tongues. 18 And they will capture snakes, and if they should drink a deadly poison, it will harm not them and they will place their hands on the sick and they will be made whole.” 19 And Yeshue, our Lord, after speaking with them, went up to heaven and sat on the right hand of Alaha. 20 And they went out and preached in every place and our Lord was helping them and establishing their words by the signs that they were doing.

CHAPTER 1
Because many have wanted to write the accounts of the works of which we are persuaded, 2 according to what they delivered to us, those who were eye-witnesses and ministers of the word at the first, 3 it seemed [good] to me also, because I had carefully attended to all of them that I should write down everything in order for you noble Theophilus, 4 that you would know the truth of the words by which you were taught. 5 In the days of Herod, the king of Yehuda, there was a certain priest, whose name was Zekharya, from the course of the house of Aviya, and his wife, from the daughters of Ahrun, whose name was Elishava. 6 Now both of them were just before Alaha and were walking in all his commandments and in the uprightness of Marya without blame. 7 But they had no son because Elishava was barren and both of them were advanced in their days. 8 And it happened, while he was serving as priest in the order of his ministering before Alaha, 9 in the custom of the priesthood, it arrived that he was to place the incense. And he entered the temple of Marya10 and the whole assembly of people was praying outside at the time of the incense. 11 And an angel of Marya appeared to Zekharya, who stood on the right [side] of the altar of incense, 12 and Zekharya was agitated when he saw him, and fear fell on him. 13 And the angel said to him, “Do not fear, Zekharya, because your prayer has been heard, and your wife, Elishava, will bear you a son, and you will call his name Yukhanan, 14 and you will have joy and gladness, and many will rejoice at his birth. 15 For he will be great before Marya, and he will not drink wine or strong drink, and he will be filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha while he is in the womb of his mother, 16 and he will turn many of the sons of Israyel to Marya their Alaha, 17 and he will go before him in the spirit and in the power of Eliya the prophet that he might turn the heart of the parents to the children and those who are disobedient to the knowledge of the upright, and he will prepare a mature people for Marya.” 18 And Zekharya said to the angel, “How will I know this? For I am old and my wife is advanced in her days.” 19 And the angel answered and said to him, “I am Gavriel, for I stand before Alaha. And I have been sent to speak with you and to declare to you these [things]. 20 From now on, you will be silent and not able to speak until the day that these [things] occur, because you did not believe my words that will be fulfilled in their season.” 21 Now the people were standing and waiting for Zekharya and they were wondering about his delay in the temple. 22 And when Zekharya came out, he was not able to speak with them and they perceived that he had seen a vision in the temple. And he continually made signs to them, yet remained mute. 23 And when the days of his service were completed, he went to his house. 24 And it happened after those days [that] Elishava, his wife, conceived. And she hid herself [for] five months, and she said, 25 “These [things] Marya has done for me in the days that he looked on me to remove my reproach that was among men.” 26 Now in the sixth month, the angel Gavriel was sent from before Alaha to Galila, to a city by the name of Natsrath, 27 to a virgin who was engaged to a man whose name [was] Yauseph from the house of Dawid. And the name of the virgin [was] Maryam. 28 And the angel approached her and said to her, “Peace to you, [one] full of grace! Our Lord [is] with you, blessed [one] of women.” 29 Now when she saw [him], she was shocked at his saying and wondered, “What is this greeting?” 30 And the angel said to her, “Do not be afraid, Maryam, for you have found grace with Alaha. 31 For behold, you will conceive and give birth to a son and you will call his name Page 57 of 276

Yeshue. 32 He will be great, and he will be called the Son of the Elaya, and Marya Alaha will give to him the throne of Dawid, his father, 33 and he will reign over the house of Yaquv forever, and there will not be a boundary to his kingdom.” 34 Maryam said to the angel, “How can this be? Because no man has known me.” 35 The angel answered and said to her, “The Rukha d’Qudsha will come and the power of the Elaya will overshadow you. Because of this, the one who is begotten in you will be holy and will be called the Son of Alaha. 36 And behold, Elishava, your kinswoman, is also pregnant with a son in her old age and this [is] the sixth month for her who was called barren, 37 because nothing [is] difficult for Alaha.” 38 Maryam said, “Behold, I am the handmaid of Marya. It will happen to me according to your word.” And the angel left her. 39 And Maryam rose up in those days and went quickly to a mountain, to a city of Yehuda. 40 And she entered the house of Zekharya and greeted Elishava. 41 And it happened that when Elishava heard the greeting of Maryam, the baby leaped in her womb, and Elishava was filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha 42 and she cried out in a loud voice and said to Maryam, “You are blessed among women, and blessed is the fruit that is in your womb. 43 How did this [happen] to me that the mother of my Lord would come to me? 44 For behold, when the sound of your greeting fell on my ears, the baby in my womb leaped with great joy. 45 And blessed [is] she who believed, because there will be a completion of those [things] that were spoken with her in the presence of Marya.” 46 And Maryam said, “My soul magnifies Marya 47 and my spirit has rejoiced in Alaha, my Life-giver, 48 because he has looked at the humiliation of his handmaid. For behold, from now on, all generations will give me a blessing, 49 because he who is mighty has done great [things] with me and his name [is] holy 50 and his mercy [is] on those who fear him for ages and generations. 51 He has accomplished victory with his arm and has scattered the proud in the thought of their heart[s]. 52 He has thrown down the mighty from the seats and elevated the humble. 53 The hungry he has satisfied with good [things] and the rich he has sent away empty-handed. 54 He has aided Israyel his servant and remembered his mercy, 55 as he spoke with our fathers, with Avraham and with his seed forever.” 56 And Maryam stayed with Elishava for three months and she returned to her house. 57 Now [concerning] Elishava, the time came that she should give birth and she bore a son. 58 And her neighbors and her relatives heard that Alaha had increased his mercy toward her and they rejoiced with her. 59 And it happened on the eighth day and they came to circumcise the young boy and they were going to call him by the name of his father, Zekharya. 60 But his mother answered and said to them, “Not so, but he will be called Yukhanan.” 61 And they said to her, “There is no man in your tribe who is called by this name.” 62 And they made signs to his father as to what he wanted to name him. 63 And he asked for a writing tablet and wrote and said, “His name is Yukhanan.” And everyone marveled. 64 And immediately his mouth was opened and his tongue [was loosed] and he spoke and blessed Alaha. 65 And fear came over all their neighbors, and in all the mountain of Yehuda these [things] were spoken. 66 And all that heard were pondering in their heart[s] and saying, “What indeed will this child be?” And the hand of Marya was with him. 67 And Zekharya, his father, was filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and prophesied and said, 68 “Marya is blessed, the Alaha of Israyel, who has visited his nation and brought redemption for it. 69 And he has raised up for us a horn of redemption in the house of Dawid his servant, 70 as he spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets who were from old, 71 that he would redeem us from our enemies and from the hand of all our adversaries. 72 And he has performed his mercy with our fathers and has remembered his holy covenants 73 and the oaths that he swore to Avraham, our father, that he would give to us, 74 so that we would be redeemed from the hand of our enemies and [that] without fear we might serve before him 75 all our days in uprightness and justification. 76 And you, [oh] child, will be called Page 58 of 276

the prophet of the Elaya, for you will go before the face of Marya to prepare his way, 77 so that he may give the knowledge of life to his people in the forgiveness of their sins, 78 by the bowels of mercy of our Alaha, by which the dawn from on high will visit us, 79 to enlighten those who sit in darkness and in the shadows of death, that he may direct our feet in the way of peace.” 80 And the child grew and was strengthened by the Rukha and he was in the wilderness until the day of his appearance to Israyel.

LUKE CHAPTER 2
And it happened [that] in those days a decree went out from Caesar Augustus that every nation of his jurisdiction should be enrolled. 2 This was the first enrollment during the governorship of Quirinius in Suriya. 3 And everyone went to his city to be enrolled. 4 And Yauseph also went up from Natsrath, a city of Galila, into Yehuda to the city of Dawid that is called Beth-Lekhem, because he was from the house and from the tribe of Dawid, 5 with Maryam, his pregnant wife, to be enrolled there. 6 And it happened that while they were there, her days were fulfilled that she should give birth, 7 and she bore her firstborn son and wrapped him in swaddling clothes and laid him in a manger, because they had no place where they were staying. 8 And there were shepherds in that region who were abiding there and keeping watch over their flocks at night. 9 And behold, an angel of Alaha came to them and the glory of Marya shone on them and they were very afraid.10 And the angel said to them, “Do not be afraid, for behold, I announce to you great joy that will be to all the world. 11 For today the deliverer, who is Marya Meshikha, is born to you in the city of Dawid. 12 And this [is] a sign to you, you will find a baby who is wrapped in swaddling clothes and laid in a manger.” 13 And suddenly the great hosts of heaven appeared with the angel, praising Alaha and saying, 14 “Glory to Alaha in the highest and on earth, peace and a good hope to men.” 15 And it happened that after the angels had gone away from them to heaven, the shepherds spoke with each other and said, “Let us journey to Beth-Lekhem and see this matter that has happened as Marya has made known to us.” 16 And they came quickly and found Maryam and Yauseph and the baby, who was laid in the manger. 17 And after they had seen [him], they made known the message that had been told to them about the child. 18 And all who heard [it] marveled at those [things] that were spoken to them by the shepherds. 19 But Maryam kept all those words and was pondering [them] in her heart. 20 And those shepherds returned, glorifying and praising Alaha for all that they had seen and heard as it was told to them. 21 And when eight days were completed so that the boy could be circumcised, his name was called Yeshue as he had been named by the angel before he was conceived in the womb. 22 And when the days of their purification were fulfilled according to the Namusa of Mushe, they took him up to Urishlem to present him to Marya, 23 according to what was written in the Namusa of Marya: Every male [who] opens the womb will be called a holy one of Marya, 24 and to give a sacrifice, as is said in the Namusa of Marya, A pair of turtledoves or two chicks of a dove. 25 Now there was a certain man in Urishlem whose name was Shimon. And this man was upright and just and was waiting for the comfort of Israyel and the Rukha d’Qudsha was on him. 26 And it had been spoken to him by the Rukha d’Qudsha that he would not see death until he would see Meshikha of Marya. 27 This [man] came by the Rukha to the temple and when his parents brought the child Yeshue to do for him as was commanded in the Namusa, 28 he took him up in his arms and blessed Alaha and said, 29 “Now, my Lord, dismiss your servant in peace Page 59 of 276

according to your word. 30 For behold, my eyes have seen your mercy 31 that you have prepared in the presence of all nations, 32 a light for a revelation to the Gentiles and a glory to your people, Israyel.” 33 And Yauseph and his mother marveled at these [things] that were spoken about him. 34 And Shimon blessed them and said to Maryam his mother, “Behold, this [man] is set for the fall and the rising of many in Israyel and for a sign of contention, 35 (and a spear will pass through your soul) so that the thoughts of many hearts may be revealed.” 36 And Khana, a prophetess, the daughter of Phanuel, from the tribe of Ashir, was also advanced in her years. And she had lived [for] seven years with her husband from her maidenhood. 37 And she was a widow for about eighty-four years and she did not go out of the temple and she served in fasting and in prayer both day and night. 38 And she also stood up immediately and gave thanks to Marya and spoke about him to everyone who waited for the redemption of Urishlem. 39 And when they had completed everything according to in the Namusa of Marya, they returned to Galila, to their city Natsrath. 40 And the child grew and was strengthened by the Rukha and was filled with wisdom and the grace of Alaha was on him. 41 And his relatives, during every year, went to Urishlem for the celebration of the Petskha. 42 And when he was twelve years old, they went up, as they were accustomed, for the celebration. 43 And after the [feast] days were completed, they returned. But the child Yeshue remained in Urishlem and Yauseph and his mother did not know [it], 44 for they thought that he was with their companions. And after they had journeyed one day, they searched for him among their relatives and among anyone who knew them 45 and they did not find him. So they returned again to Urishlem and searched for him. 46 And after three days, they found him in the temple, sitting in the middle of the teachers. And he was listening to them and questioning them. 47 And all those who heard him were amazed by his wisdom and his answers. 48 And when they saw him, they were amazed and his mother said to him, “My son, why have you acted toward us in this manner? For behold, your father and I have been searching for you with much anxiety.” 49 He said to them, “Why were you searching for me? Do you not know that it is necessary for me to be in the house of my Father?” 50 But they did not understand the saying that he had told them. 51 And he went down with them and came to Natsrath and was subject to them. And his mother kept all the words in her heart. 52 And Yeshue grew in his stature and in his wisdom and in favor with Alaha and men.

LUKE CHAPTER 3
Now in the fifteenth year of the reign of Tiberius Caesar, in the governorship of Pontius Pilate in Yehuda, while Herod [was] tetrarch in Galila and Philip, his brother, [was] tetrarch in Ituraea and in the region of Trachonitis, and Lysanias [was] tetrarch of Avilina, 2 during the high priesthood of Khanan and Qayapha, the word of Alaha came to Yukhanan, the son of Zekharya, in the wilderness. 3 And he came into all the region that was around the Yurdinan, proclaiming the immersion of repentance for the forgiveness of sins, 4 as it is written in the book of the words of Eshaya the prophet who said: The voice that calls in the wilderness: prepare the way of Marya and make straight paths in the plain for our Alaha. 5 All the valleys will be filled and all the mountains and hills will be leveled and the rugged [place] will be cleared and the rough land, a plain. 6 And all flesh will see the life of Alaha. 7 And he said to those crowds that had come to him to be immersed, “Generation of vipers, who has shown you to flee from the wrath that is to come? 8 Produce therefore fruit that is worthy for repentance and do not begin to say within Page 60 of 276
1

yourselves, “We have Avraham [for] a father.” For I say to you, “From these stones, Alaha is able to raise up sons to Avraham.” 9 And behold, the ax is laid on the root of the trees. Therefore, every tree that does not produce good fruit will be cut off and will fall into the fire.”10 And the crowds were asking him and saying, “What then should we do?” 11 He answered and said to them, “He who has two coats should give to him who does not have [any] and he who has food should do likewise.” 12 And the tax collectors also came to be immersed and were saying to him, “Teacher, what should we do?” 13 And he said to them, “Do not require anything more than what is commanded to you to require.” 14 And the soldiers were asking him and said, “What should we also do?” He said to them, “Do not deal harshly with anyone and do not accuse anyone and let your rations be sufficient for you.” 15 And as the nation was thinking about Yukhanan and all were considering in their heart that perhaps he was Meshikha, 16 Yukhanan answered and said to them, “Behold, I immerse you with water, but one who is greater than I will come, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen. He will immerse you with the Rukha d’Qudsha and with fire, 17 he who holds a winnowing fan in his hand and has cleaned his threshing floors. And he will gather the wheat into his granaries and he will burn the chaff with a fire that will not go out.” 18 Now also many other [things] he was teaching and declaring to the people. 19 But Herod, the tetrarch, because he had been reproved by Yukhanan on account of Herodias, the wife of Philip, his brother, and on account of all the evil [things] that he had done, 20 added this also above all of them, that he shut up Yukhanan [in] prison. 21 Now it happened while he immersed all the people, he also immersed Yeshue. And while he prayed, the sky opened, 22 and the Rukha d’Qudsha came down on him in the likeness of the form of a dove. And a voice came from heaven that said, “You are my beloved Son in whom I am pleased.” 23 And Yeshue was about thirty years old and was thought [to be] the son of Yauseph, the son of Heli, 24 the son of Matathath, the son of Lewi, the son of Malki, the son of Yani, the son of Yauseph, 25 the son of Matta, the son of Amus, the son of Nakhum, the son of Khesli, the son of Nagi, 26 the son of Math, the son of Matath, the son of Shamey, the son of Yauseph, the son of Yehudah, 27 the son of Yoanan, the son of Rhesa, the son of Zurbabel, the son of Shelatheil, the son of Niri, 28 the son of Malki, the son of Adi, the son of Cosam, the son of Elmudad, the son of Ear, 29 the son of Yausi, the son of Eliazar, the son of Yuram, the son of Mathitha, the son of Lewi, 30 the son of Shimon, the son of Yehudah, the son of Yauseph, the son of Yunam, the son of Eliyaqim, 31 the son of Melea, the son of Mani, the son of Mattha, the son of Nathan, the son of Dawid, 32 the son of Ishai, the son of Euvid, the son of Baaz, the son of Salmun, the son of Nakhshun, 33 the son of Aminadav, the son of Aram, the son of Khesrun, the son of Partz, the son of Yehudah, 34 the son of Yaquv, the son of Iskhaq, the son of Avraham, the son of Tarakh, the son of Nakhur, 35 the son of Sarug, the son of Aruw, the son of Palag, the son of Auvar, the son of Shelakh, 36 the son of Qaynan, the son of Arphakshar, the son of Shim, the son of Nukh, the son of Lamek, 37 the son of Mathushelakh, the son of Khenuk, the son of Yared, the son of Mahlalayel, the son of Qaynan, 38 the son of Anush, the son of Shaeth, the son of Adom, who [was] from Alaha.

LUKE CHAPTER 4
And Yeshue, being full of the Rukha d’Qudsha, returned from the Yurdinan. And the Rukha led him to the wilderness 2 [for] forty days to be tempted by the Accuser. And he did not eat anything in those days, and when he had completed them, at the end he was hungry. 3 And Page 61 of 276
1

the Accuser said to him, “If you are the Son of Alaha, tell this stone to become bread.” 4 Yeshue answered and said to him, “It is written: Man should not live by bread alone, but by every answer of Alaha.” 5 And Satan took him up to a high mountain and showed him all the kingdoms of the earth in a short period of time. 6 And the Accuser said to him, “I will give you all this authority and its glory that is delivered to me and to whom I want, I give it. 7 Therefore, if you worship before me, all of it will be yours.” 8 But Yeshue answered and said to him, “It is written: You should worship Marya your Alaha and you should serve him alone.” 9 And he brought him to Urishlem and placed him on the edge of the temple and said to him, “If you are the Son of Alaha, throw yourself down from here to the bottom.10 For it is written: He will command his angels concerning you to keep you 11 and bear you in their arms, so that your foot will not stumble on a stone.” 12 And Yeshue answered and said to him, “It is said: You should not tempt Marya your Alaha.” 13 And after the Accuser had finished all his temptations, he left his presence for a while. 14 And Yeshue returned in the power of the Rukha to Galila and a report about him went out into every region around them. 15 And he was teaching in their synagogues and was being praised by everyone. 16 And he came to Natsrath where he had been raised. And he entered into the synagogue as he was accustomed on the day of the Shabtha and stood up to read. 17 And the scroll of Eshaya the prophet was given to him and Yeshue opened the scroll and found the place where it was written: 18 The Rukha d’Marya [is] on me and because of this, he has anointed me to preach to the poor and has sent me to heal the broken-hearted and to preach forgiveness to the captives and sight to the blind and to strengthen the broken with forgiveness 19 and to preach the acceptable year of Marya.” 20 And he rolled up the scroll and gave it to the minister and went [and] sat down. And the eyes of all of them in the synagogue were fixed on him. 21 And he began to speak to them, “Today this scripture is fulfilled in your ears.” 22 And all were witnessing to him and were amazed at the words of blessing that were coming out of his mouth. And they were saying, “Is not this [man] the son of Yauseph?” 23 Yeshue said to them, “Perhaps you will tell me this proverb: “Physician, heal yourself,” and all that we have heard that you did in Kepharnakhum, do also here in your city.” 24 But he said, “Truly, I say to you, there is no prophet that is received in his city. 25 For I tell you the truth, that there were many widows in the house of Israyel in the days of Eliya the prophet, while the heavens were closed [for] three years and six months and a great famine was in all the land. 26 And Eliya was not sent to one of them, except to Tsarpath of Tsaidan, to a widow woman. 27 And there were many lepers [in] Israyel in the days of Elaysha the prophet, yet not one of them was cleansed, except Naaman the Armaya.” 28 And when they had heard these [things], all that were in the synagogue were filled with anger. 29 And they rose up [and] threw him outside of the city. And they brought him up to the top of the mountain on which their city was built to throw him down from the steep place. 30 But he passed through them and went away. 31 And he went down to Kepharnakhum, a city of Galila, and taught them on the Shabtha(s). 32 And they were astonished at his teaching, because his message had power. 33 And there was in the synagogue a man who had the spirit of an unclean demon and he cried out with a loud voice 34 and said, “Leave me. What do we have in common, Yeshue the Natsraya? Have you come to destroy us? I know you, who you are, the Holy [one] of Alaha.” 35 And Yeshue rebuked him and said, “Shut your mouth and go out of him.” And the demon threw him down in the middle and went out of him, not harming him at all. 36 And great amazement took hold of everyone and they were speaking with each other and saying, “What indeed is this message, because with authority and power he commands the unclean spirits and they go out?” 37 And a report went out about him into the entire region surrounding them. 38 And after Yeshue went out of the synagogue, he entered the house of Shimon, and the mother-in-law Page 62 of 276

of Shimon was tormented with a great fever, and they begged him on account of her. 39 And he stood over her and rebuked her fever and it left her. And immediately she rose up and served them. 40 And [at] the setting of the sun all those who had sick who were sick with various sicknesses brought them to him. And he placed his hand on each of them and healed them. 41 And also demons were going out of many, crying out and saying, “You are Meshikha, the Son of Alaha.” And he rebuked them and did not allow them to say that they knew he was Meshikha. 42 And on the morning of the day he went out [and] journeyed to a deserted place. And the crowds were seeking him and came up to him and were holding him captive so that he would not go away from them. 43 But Yeshue said to them, “It is necessary for me also to preach to other cities the kingdom of Alaha, because for this I was sent.” 44 And he was preaching in the synagogues of Galila.

LUKE CHAPTER 5
And it happened [that] as the crowd gathered around him to hear the word of Alaha and he was standing on the shore of the lake of Genesar, 2 he saw two ships that were standing at the edge of the lake and the fishermen that had come down from them and they were washing their nets. 3 And one of them belonged to Shimon Kipha. And Yeshue boarded [and] sat in it and told [them] to take him a little way from dry land on the water. And he sat and taught the crowd from the ship. 4 And after he stopped speaking, he said to Shimon, “Row to deep [water] and cast your net for a catch.” 5 Shimon answered and said to him, “My Master, we have labored all night and have not caught anything. But at your word I will cast the net.” 6 And after they did this, they caught a great many fish and their net was tearing. 7 And they made signs to their friends who were in the other ship to come to help them. And after they had come, they filled both ships, so that they were close to sinking. 8 And when Shimon Kipha saw [this], he fell down before the feet of Yeshue and said to him, “I beg you, my Lord, go away from me, for I am a sinful man.” 9 For amazement had taken hold of him and all who were with him, because of that catch of fish that they had caught,10 and so also Yaquv and Yukhanan, the sons of Zabedai, who were partners of Shimon. And Yeshue said to Shimon, “Do not be afraid. From now on, you will catch men to life.” 11 And they brought those ships to land and left everything and followed him. 12 And when Yeshue was in one of the cities, a man who was completely covered with leprosy came. He saw Yeshue and fell on his face and begged him and said to him, “My Lord, if you want to, you are able to cleanse me.” 13 And Yeshue stretched out his hand [and] touched him and said to him, “I want to. Be cleansed.” And immediately his leprosy went away from him. 14 And he commanded him, “Do not tell anyone, but go [and] show yourself to the priests and offer for your purification, as Mushe commanded for their witness.” 15 And a report about him went out all the more and a large crowd was gathered to hear from him and to be healed from their sicknesses. 16 And he went away to the desert land and was praying. 17 And it happened [that] on a certain day while Yeshue was teaching, Perishye and teachers of the Namusa were sitting [there] who had come from all the villages of Galila and of Yehuda and of Urishlem, and there was the power of Marya to heal them. 18 And men brought on a pallet a certain paralyzed man and were seeking to bring [him] in to lay him before him. 19 And when they could not find how to bring him in because of the multitude of people, they went up to the roof and let him down on his pallet from the roof floor into the middle before Yeshue. 20 And when Yeshue saw their faith, he said to that Page 63 of 276

paralyzed man, “Your sins are forgiven.” 21 And the Saphrey and Perishye began reasoning and saying, “Who is this [man] who speaks blasphemy? Who is able to forgive sins, except Alaha alone?” 22 But Yeshue knew their reasonings and answered and said to them, “Why are you reasoning in your heart? 23 Which [thing] is easier to say, “Your sins are forgiven” or to say, “Rise up, walk?” 24 But that you will know that it is lawful for the Son of Man to forgive sins on earth,” he said to the paralytic, “I say to you, rise up, take up your pallet and go to your house.” 25 And immediately he rose up before their eyes and took up his pallet and went to his house, praising Alaha. 26 And amazement took hold of everyone and they were praising Alaha and were filled with fear and were saying, “We have seen wonders today.” 27 After these [things], Yeshue went out and saw a tax collector, whose name was Lewi, who was sitting at the customs-house, and he said to him, “Follow me.” 28 And he left everything and stood up [and] followed him. 29 And Lewi made for him a great feast in his house, and there was a large crowd of tax collectors and of others who were eating with them. 30 And the Saphrey and Perishye were murmuring and saying to his disciples, “Why are you eating and drinking with tax collectors and sinners?” 31 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “The physician is not needed by the healthy, but by those who are very sick. 32 I did not come to call the just, but sinners to repentance.” 33 And those were saying to him, “Why are the disciples of Yukhanan, also of the Perishye, fasting and praying continually, but yours are eating and drinking?” 34 And he said to them, “You cannot make the wedding guests fast as long as the bridegroom [is] with them. 35 But the days will come when the bridegroom will be taken up from them. Then, in those days, they will fast.” 36 And he told them a parable: “No one cuts off a piece of cloth from a new garment and lays [it] on an old garment, lest he cuts off the new and the patch that is from the new does not repair the old. 37 And no one puts new wine into old wineskins, lest the new wine will burst the wineskins and the wine should be poured out and the wineskins ruined. 38 On the contrary, they put new wine into new wineskins and both of them are preserved. 39 And no one drinks old wine and immediately desires new, for he says, “The old is delicious.”“

LUKE CHAPTER 6
And it happened [that] on the Shabtha, while Yeshue was walking [in] the sown fields, his disciples were picking the heads of grain and rubbing [them] in their hands and eating [them]. 2 And some of the Perishye were saying to them, “Why are you doing that which is not lawful to do on the Shabtha?” 3 Yeshue answered and said to them, “And have you not read what Dawid did when he was hungry, and those who were with him, 4 how he entered the house of Alaha and took the bread of the table of Marya [and] ate and gave to those who were with him, that which was not lawful for [anyone] to eat, but only the priests alone?” 5 And he said to them, “The Lord of the Shabtha is the Son of Man.” 6 And it happened [that] on another Shabtha he entered the synagogue and was teaching. And there was there a man whose right hand was withered. 7 And the Saphrey and Perishye were watching him, if he would heal on the Shabtha, so that they would be able to accuse him. 8 And he knew their thoughts and said to that man whose hand was withered, “Stand up. Come to the middle of the synagogue.” And when he came and stood, 9 Yeshue said to them, “I will ask you, is it lawful on the Shabtha to do good or evil, to cause a soul to live or to destroy [it]?”10 And he gazed at all of them and said to him, “Stretch out your hand.” And he stretched [it] out and his hand was restored like the other. 11 And they were filled Page 64 of 276

with envy and were speaking with each other about what they should do to Yeshue. 12 And it happened [that] in those days Yeshue went out to a mountain to pray. And there he spent the night in prayer to Alaha. 13 And when [day] dawned, he called his disciples and chose twelve of them, those whom he named apostles: 14 Shimon, whom he called Kipha, and Andrew, his brother, and Yaquv and Yukhanan and Philip and Bar-Tulmai 15 and Mattai and Tama and Yaquv, the son of Alphaeus, and Shimon, who was called the Canaanite, 16 and Yehudah, the son of Yaquv, and Yehudah Sekariuta, who was the betrayer. 17 And Yeshue came down with them and stood in the plain with a large crowd of his disciples and a multitude of a crowd of people from all Yehuda and from Urishlem and from the sea coast of Tsur and of Tsaidan, 18 who had come to hear his message and to be healed of their sicknesses, and those who were tormented by unclean spirits, and they were healed. 19 And the whole crowd was seeking to touch him, for power was going out of him, and he was healing all of them. 20 And he lifted up his eyes to his disciples and said, “Blessed are you poor, because yours is the kingdom of Alaha. 21 Blessed are you who are hungry now, because you will be satisfied. Blessed are you who are weeping now, because you will laugh. 22 Blessed are you when men hate you and discriminate against you and reproach you and cast out your name as evil for the sake of the Son of Man. 23 Rejoice in that day and leap for joy, because your reward is great in heaven, for their fathers did the same to the prophets. 24 But woe to you, rich [ones], because you have received your comfort! 25 Woe to you, satisfied [ones], because you will hunger! Woe to you who are laughing now, because you will cry and you will mourn! 26 Woe to you, when men will speak what is good about you, for their fathers did so to the false prophets! 27 But to you who hear, I say, “Love your enemies and do that which is good to those who hate you. 28 And bless those who curse you and pray for those who take you by force. 29 And to him, who strikes you on your cheek, offer to him the other, and from him who takes away your outer cloak, do not hold back your tunic also. 30 To everyone who asks you, give to him, and from him, who takes away your [things], do not demand [them] back. 31 And whatever you desire men to do to you, do the same to them also. 32 For if you love those who love you, what is your goodness? For even sinners love those who love them. 33 And if you do that which is good to those who do good to you, what is your goodness? For even sinners do the same. 34 And if you lend to [those] from whom you expect to be repaid, what is your goodness? For even sinners lend to sinners, that in the same way they might be repaid. 35 But love your enemies and do good to them and lend and do not cut off the hope of anyone, and your reward will be increased and you will be the sons of the Most High, because he is kind to the evil and to the unthankful. 36 Therefore be merciful, as your Father also is merciful. 37 Do not judge and you will not be judged. Do not condemn and you will not be condemned. Forgive and you will be forgiven. 38 Give and it will be given to you. With good and pressed down and abundant measure they will throw into your laps. For with the same measure that you measure, it will be measured to you.” 39 And he told them a parable, “Are the blind able to lead the blind? Would not they both fall in a ditch? 40 There is no disciple who is greater than his master, for everyone who is mature should be as his master [is]. 41 And why do you see the straw that is in the eye of your brother, but the plank that is in your [own] eye is not seen by you? 42 Or how are you able to say to your brother, “My brother, allow me to take out the straw from your eye,” when behold, the plank that is in your own eye is not seen by you? Hypocrite! First take out the plank from your [own] eye and then it will be clear for you to take out the straw from the eye of your brother. 43 There is not a good tree that produces bad fruit or a bad tree that produces good fruit. 44 For every tree is known by its fruit. For they do not gather figs from thorn-bushes, nor do they gather grapes from a bramble-bush. 45 A good man, from the good treasures that are in his heart, Page 65 of 276

produces good things, and an evil man, from the evil treasures that are in his heart, produces evil things. For from the abundant [things] of the heart the lips speak. 46 Why do you call me, “My Lord, my Lord,” and you do not do what I say? 47 I will show you what each one who comes to me and hears my words and does them is like. 48 He is like the man who built a house and dug and went deep and laid the foundations on rock. And when there was a flood, the flood beat on that house and it was not able to shake it, for its foundation was placed on rock. 49 And whoever hears [my words] and does not do [them] is like the man who built his house on ground without a foundation. And when the river beat on it, immediately it fell, and the fall of that house was great.”

LUKE CHAPTER 7
And when he completed all the sayings for the hearing of the people, Yeshue entered Kepharnakhum. 2 And the servant of a certain centurion, who was dear to him, was very sick and was about to die. 3 And he heard about Yeshue and sent to him elders of the Yehudaye and was begging him to come [and] give life to his servant. 4 And when they came to Yeshue, they were begging him earnestly and saying, “He is worthy that you do this for him, 5 for he loves our people and has even built a synagogue for us.” 6 And Yeshue went with them. And when he was not very far from the house, the centurion sent his friends to him and said to him, “My Lord, do not trouble [yourself], for I am not worthy that you should come under my roof, 7 [and] on account of that, I am not worthy to come to you. But speak with a word and my young man will be healed, 8 for I also am a man who is subject to authority and there are soldiers under my hand. And I say to this one, “Go,” and he goes, and to another, “Come,” and he comes, and to my servant, “Do this,” and he does [it].” 9 And when Yeshue heard these [things], he marveled at him. And he turned and said to the crowd that was following him, “I say to you, not even [in] Israyel have I found faith like this.”10 And those who were sent returned to the house and found that servant who was sick made whole. 11 And it happened on the day that followed, [that] he went to a city by the name of Nayin and his disciples and a large crowd [were] with him. 12 And when he approached the gate of the city, he saw a dead man being brought who was the only [son] of his mother, and his mother was a widow, and a large crowd of citizens [was] with her. 13 And Yeshue saw her and had compassion on her and said to her, “Do not cry.” 14 And he went [and] touched the pallet. And those who were carrying it stood, and he said, “Young man, I say to you, rise up.” 15 And that dead man sat up and began to speak and he gave him to his mother. 16 And fear took hold of all men and they were praising Alaha and saying, “A great prophet has risen up among us and Alaha has visited his people.” 17 And this saying went out about him into all Yehuda and into all the region around them, 18 and his disciples reported all these [things] to Yukhanan. 19 And Yukhanan called two of his disciples and sent them to Yeshue and said, “Are you that one who is to come or should we wait for another?” 20 And they came to Yeshue and said to him, Yukhanan the Immerser sent us to you and said, “Are you that one who is to come or should we wait for another?” 21 And in that same hour he healed many of sicknesses and of plagues and of evil spirits and he gave sight to many blind. 22 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “Go [and] tell Yukhanan everything that you have seen and heard, that the blind see and the lame walk and the lepers are cleansed and the deaf hear and the dead rise up and the poor receive good news. 23 And blessed is he who is not offended at me.” 24 And when the disciples of Page 66 of 276
1

Yukhanan went away, Yeshue began to speak to the crowds about Yukhanan: “What did you go out to the desert to see, a reed that was shaken by the wind? 25 And if not, what did you go out to see, a man clothed with soft garments? Behold, those who are with fancy clothes and luxuries are [in] the house of kings. 26 And if not, what did you go out to see, a prophet? Yes, I say to you, even greater than the prophets. 27 This is he about whom it is written: Behold, I will send my messenger before your face to prepare the way before you. 28 I say to you, there is no prophet among those born of women who is greater than Yukhanan the Immerser, but the least in the kingdom of Alaha is greater than he.” 29 And all the people who heard, even the tax collectors, declared Alaha [to be] just, because they had been immersed [with] the immersion of Yukhanan. 30 And the Perishye and the Saphrey rejected in themselves the will of Alaha, because they were not immersed by him. 31 “To what therefore can I liken the men of this generation and to what are they like? 32 They are like young boys who sit in the marketplace and call out to their friends and say, “We have played music for you and you did not dance and we mourned for you and you did not weep.” 33 For Yukhanan the Immerser came neither eating bread nor drinking wine and you said, “There is a demon in him.” 34 The Son of Man came eating and drinking and you say, “Behold, a gluttonous man and [one] drinking wine and a friend of tax collectors and sinners.” 35 Yet wisdom is declared just by all its children.” 36 Now one of the Perishye came [and] begged him to eat with him. And he entered the house of that Perishya and sat to eat. 37 And there was a woman [who was] a sinner in that city. And when she learned that he was reclining in the house of that Perishya, she took an alabaster box of ointment 38 and stood behind him at his feet and she was crying. And she began washing his feet with her tears and wiping them with the hair of her head. And she was kissing his feet and anointed [them] with ointment. 39 Now when that Perishya who had invited him saw [this], he reasoned within himself and said, “This man, if he were a prophet, would have known who she is and what her reputation [is], because the woman who touched him is a sinner.” 40 But Yeshue answered and said to him, “Shimon, I have something to say to you.” And he said to him, “Speak, my Master.” Yeshue said to him, 41 “There were two debtors to a certain lender. One owed five hundred denarii and the other fifty denarii. 42 And because they had no way to repay, he forgave both of them. Now then, which of them will love him more?” 43 Shimon answered and said, “I suppose that the one who was forgiven the most.” Yeshue said to him, “You have judged correctly.” 44 Then he turned to that woman and said to Shimon, “Do you see this woman? I entered your house [and] you did not give [me] water for my feet, but this [woman] has washed my feet with her tears and she has dried them with her hair. 45 You did not kiss me, but behold, this [woman], since I entered, has not ceased to kiss my feet. 46 You did not anoint my head [with] oil, but this [woman] has anointed my feet with perfumed ointment. 47 Because of this I say to you, her many sins are forgiven, because she has loved much. But he to whom little is forgiven loves little.” 48 And he said to that woman, “Your sins are forgiven.” 49 And those who were sitting to eat began saying among themselves, “Who is this who even forgives sins?” 50 But Yeshue said to that woman, “Your faith has given you life. Go in peace.”

LUKE CHAPTER 8
And it happened [that] after these [things] Yeshue was going around in the cities and in the villages and he was preaching and declaring the kingdom of Alaha. And his twelve [were] Page 67 of 276

with him 2 and those women who had been healed of sicknesses and of evil spirits: Maryam who was called Magdelaita, from whom seven demons had gone out, 3 and Yukhanan the wife of Chuza, the steward of Herod, and Shushan, and many others who were ministering to them from their properties. 4 And when a large crowd had gathered and they were coming to him from all the cities, he spoke in parables: 5 “A sower went to sow his seed, and as he sowed, some fell by the side of the road and was trampled and a bird ate it. 6 And other [seed] fell on rock. And immediately it sprang up, but because it did not have moisture, it withered. 7 And other [seed] fell among thorns and the thorns sprang up with it and choked it. 8 And other [seed] fell on good and fertile earth and sprang up and produced fruit one hundred[fold]. when he had said these [things], he cried out, “He who has ears to hear should hear.” 9 And his disciples asked him, “What is [the meaning of] this parable?”10 And he said to them, “For to you it is given to know the secret of the kingdom of Alaha. But to the rest, it is spoken in comparisons: Because although they see, they will not see and although they hear, they will not understand. 11 Now, this is [the meaning of] the parable. The seed is the word of Alaha. 12 And those [seeds] that [fell] by the side of the road are those who hear the word, yet the enemy comes [and] takes the word from their heart[s] so that they will not believe and live. 13 And those [seeds] that [fell] on rock are those that when they hear, receive the word with joy. But they have no root. On the contrary, their faith is for a while, yet in the time of temptation, they are offended. 14 And that [seed] which fell among thorns are those who hear the word and are choked with the care and wealth and lusts of the world and they do not bear fruit. 15 And that [seed] which [fell] on good ground are those who with an honest and good heart hear the word and adhere [to it] and bear fruit with patience. 16 No one lights a lamp and hides it in a vessel or places it under a bed. On the contrary, he places it on a lamp stand, so that all who enter will see its light. 17 For there is not anything that is covered that will not be revealed or that is hidden that will not be known and come [out] openly. 18 Take heed how you hear, for whoever has, it will be given to him, and whoever does not have, even that which he thinks he has, will be taken from him.” 19 Now his mother and his brothers came to him and were not able to speak with him because of the crowd. 20 And they said to him, “Your mother and your brothers are standing outside and want to see you.” 21 But he answered and said to them, “My mother and my brothers are those who hear the word of Alaha and do it.” 22 And it happened [that] on a certain day Yeshue boarded [and] sat in a boat, he and his disciples, and he said to them, “Let us cross over to the other side of the lake.” 23 And while they were journeying, Yeshue was asleep. And there was a sudden wind storm on the lake and the boat was about to sink. 24 And they came near [and] woke him and said to him, “Our Master, our Master, we are being destroyed.” And he stood up and rebuked the winds and the waves of the sea and they ceased and there was calm. 25 And he said to them, “Where is your faith?” And, being afraid, they were amazed and said one to another, “Who indeed is this [man] who commands even the winds and the waves and the sea and they obey him?” 26 And they journeyed and came to the region of the Gedraye that is on the shore opposite Galila. 27 And when he had come onto the land, he met a certain man from the city who had had a devil for a long time. And he did not wear clothes and did not live in a house, but in the tombs. 28 And when he saw Yeshue, he cried out and fell down before him and spoke with a loud voice, “What do we have in common, Yeshue, Son of the Most High Alaha? I beg you, do not torment me.” 29 For Yeshue was commanding the unclean spirit to go out of the man, for a long time had passed since he was [first] held captive by him. And he had been bound with chains and restrained with fetters, but he broke his bonds and was driven by the demon into the wilderness. 30 And Yeshue asked him, “What is your name?” He said to him, “Legion,” because many devils had entered into him. 31 Page 68 of 276

And they were begging him that he would not command them to go to the abyss. 32 And there was there a herd of many pigs that was feeding on the mountain. And they were begging him to permit them to attack the pigs and he permitted them. 33 And the demons went out from the man and attacked the pigs and that whole herd rushed to a steep place and fell into the lake and was drowned. 34 And when the herdsmen saw what had happened, they fled and reported [it] in the cities and villages. 35 And the men came out to see what had happened. And they came to Yeshue and found the man, whose demons had gone out, clothed and sober and sitting at the feet of Yeshue, and they were afraid. 36 And those who had seen [it] reported to them how he healed the man possessed with a devil. 37 And all the assembly of the Gedraye begged him to go away from them, because great fear had taken hold of them. And Yeshue boarded a ship and turned away from them. 38 And that man from whom the demons went out begged him that he might remain with him. But Yeshue sent him away and said to him, 39 “Return to your house and report what Alaha has done for you.” And he went and was preaching in the whole city what Yeshue had done for him. 40 And when Yeshue returned, a large crowd received him, for all were looking for him. 41 And a certain man whose name [was] Yuarash, a chief of the synagogue, fell before the feet of Yeshue and begged him to enter his house, 42 for he had an only daughter about twelve years old and she was about to die. And while Yeshue went with him, a large crowd thronged him. 43 And a certain woman, whose blood had been flowing [for] twelve years, who had spent all her wealth among the doctors, but was not able to be healed by man, 44 approached from behind him and touched the outer edge of his garment. And immediately the flow of her blood stopped. 45 And Yeshue said, “Who touched me?” And while all were denying [it], Shimon Kipha and those with him said to him, “Our Master, the crowds are pressing and thronging you, yet you say, “Who touched me?”“ 46 And he said, “Someone touched me, for I know that power went out of me.” 47 Now when that woman saw that she had not escaped his notice, she came trembling and fell down [and] worshipped him. And she declared before all the people for what reason she had touched [him] and how she was immediately healed. 48 And Yeshue said to her, “Be encouraged, my daughter. Your faith has given you life. Go in peace.” 49 And while he was speaking, a man from the house of the chief of the synagogue came and said to him, “Your daughter has died. Do not trouble the teacher.” 50 But Yeshue heard [it] and said to the father of the girl, “Do not fear, believe only and she will live.” 51 And Yeshue came to the house and did not allow anyone to enter with him, except Shimon and Yaquv and Yukhanan and the father of the girl and her mother. 52 And all were weeping and mourning over her. But Yeshue said, “Do not weep, for she has not died, but sleeps.” 53 And they were laughing at him, because they knew that she had died. 54 And he put everyone outside and took her by her hand and called her and said, “Young girl, rise up.” 55 And her spirit returned and immediately she rose up. And he commanded them to give her [something] to eat. 56 And her parents were astonished. And he warned them not to tell anyone what had happened.

LUKE CHAPTER 9
And Yeshue called his twelve and gave them power and authority over all demons and to heal sicknesses. 2 And he sent them to preach the kingdom of Alaha and to heal the sick. 3 And he said to them, “Do not take anything on the journey, neither staff nor bag nor bread nor money nor should you have two coats. 4 And in whatever house you enter, remain there and leave from Page 69 of 276
1

there. 5 And whoever does not receive you, when you leave that city, shake off even the dust from your feet for a witness against them.” 6 And the apostles left and were going around in the villages and cities and were preaching and healing in every place. 7 Now Herod the tetrarch heard of all [the things] that were done by his hand and he was wondering, because some were saying that Yukhanan had risen from the dead. 8 And others were saying that Eliya had appeared and others that a prophet from the first prophets had risen. 9 And Herod said, “I cut off the head of Yukhanan, but who is this [man] about whom I hear these [things]?” And he wanted to see him.10 And when the apostles returned, they reported to Yeshue everything that they had done. And he took them privately to a desert place of Beth-Sayada. 11 And when the crowds knew [it], they followed him. And he received them and spoke with them about the kingdom of Alaha. And those who had a need for healing, he healed. 12 And when the day began to fade, his disciples came near and were saying to him, “Send away the crowds that they may go to the villages and to the towns around us to stay in them and to find food for themselves, because we are in a desert place. 13 Yeshue said to them, “You give them [something] to eat.” But they were saying, “We do not have more than five [loaves of] bread and two fish, unless we go and buy food for all this people,” 14 for there were about five thousand men. Yeshue said to them, “Cause them to sit to eat [in] groups, fifty men in a group.” 15 And the disciples did so and caused them all to sit to eat. 16 And Yeshue took those five [loaves of] bread and two fish and gazed into heaven and blessed and broke [them] and gave [them] to his disciples to set before the crowds. 17 And all ate and were satisfied and they took up the fragments that were left over, twelve baskets. 18 And while he was praying alone and his disciples with him, he asked them and said, “What do the crowds say about me, who I am?” 19 They answered and were saying to him, “Yukhanan the Immerser, and others, Eliya, and others, that a certain prophet from the first prophets has risen.” 20 He said to them, “But who do you say that I am?” Shimon answered and said, “Meshikha of Alaha.” 21 And he reproved them and warned them not to say this to anyone. 22 And he said to them that the Son of Man would suffer many things and he would be rejected by the elders and the chief priests and Saphrey and they would kill him and on the third day he would rise up. 23 And he said before everyone, “He who wants to follow me should deny himself and take up his cross every day and follow me. 24 For he who wants to save his soul will lose it, but he who will lose his soul because of me, this one will save it. 25 For what is a man helped who gains the whole world, but will lose or is deprived of his soul? 26 And whoever will be ashamed of me and of my words, the Son of Man will be ashamed of him when he comes in the glory of his Father with his holy angels. 27 I say the truth to you, there are men who stand here who will not taste death until they see the kingdom of Alaha.” 28 And it happened [that] about eight days after these words, Yeshue took Shimon and Yaquv and Yukhanan and climbed a mountain to pray. 29 And while he was praying, the appearance of his face was changed and his clothes were whitened and made to shine. 30 And behold, two men were talking with him, who were Mushe and Eliya, 31 who appeared in glory. And they were talking about his departure that was about to be accomplished in Urishlem. 32 And Shimon and those who were with him were heavy with sleep and scarcely awake and they saw his glory and those two men who were standing with him. 33 And when they began to go away from him, Shimon said to Yeshue, “My Master, it is good for us that we were here. Yet let us make three booths, one for you and one for Mushe and one for Eliya,” and he did not know what he said. 34 And when he said these [things], a cloud came and overshadowed them. And they were afraid when they saw that Mushe and Eliya entered into the cloud. 35 And a voice came from the cloud that said, “This is my beloved Son. Hear him.” 36 And after the voice came, Yeshue was found alone and they kept silent and did not tell anyone in those days anything that Page 70 of 276

they had seen. 37 And it happened [that] on the next day when they came down from the mountain, a large crowd met them. 38 And a certain man from that crowd cried out and said, “Teacher, I beg you, take notice of me. He is my only son 39 and a spirit quickly comes over him and suddenly he cries out and gnashes his teeth and foams and with difficulty does it go out of him when it has harassed him. 40 And I begged your disciples to cast it out and they were not able.” 41 And Yeshue answered and said, “Oh faithless and perverted generation! How long should I be with you and endure you? Bring your son here.” 42 And while he was bringing him, that devil cast him down and convulsed him. And Yeshue rebuked that unclean spirit and he healed the young boy and gave him to his father. 43 And they were all amazed at the greatness of Alaha. And while everyone was wondering about all that Yeshue had done, he said to his disciples, 44 Set these words in your ears, for the Son of Man is about to be delivered into the hands of men. 45 But they did not understand this saying, because it was hidden from them so that they did not know it, and they were afraid to ask him about this saying. 46 And the thought entered into them [as to] who was indeed great among them. 47 And Yeshue knew the thought of their heart[s] and he took a young child and set him by him. 48 And he said to them, “He who receives a child like this in my name, receives me. And he who receives me, receives him who sent me. For whoever is least among all of you, this one will be great.” 49 And Yukhanan answered and said, “Our Master, we saw a man who was casting out devils in your name and we prohibited him, because he did not follow you with us.” 50 Yeshue said to them, “Do not prohibit [him], for he who is not against you is for you.” 51 And it happened that when the days of his offering up were fulfilled, he directed his face to go to Urishlem. 52 And he sent messengers before his face and they went [and] entered a village of the Shamraye in order to prepare for him. 53 And they did not receive him because his face was set to go to Urishlem. 54 And when Yaquv and Yukhanan, his disciples, saw [it], they said to him, “Our Lord, do you want us to speak and have fire come down from heaven and consume them as also Eliya did?” 55 And he turned and rebuked them and said, “You do not know of what spirit you are. 56 For the Son of Man did not come to destroy souls, but to make [them] to live.” And they went to another village. 57 And while they were traveling on the road, a man said to him, “I will follow you wherever you go, my Lord.” 58 Yeshue said to him, “Foxes have holes and a bird of heaven a shelter, but the Son of Man has no where to lay his head.” 59 And he said to another, “Follow me.” And he said to him, “My Lord, allow me first to go [and] bury my father.” 60 Yeshue said to him, “Leave the dead burying their dead and go [and] preach the kingdom of Alaha.” 61 Another said to him, “I will follow you, my Lord, but first allow me to go [and] say goodbye to my household and [then] I will come.” 62 Yeshue said to him, “No one places his hand on the handle of a plow and looks back and is useful for the kingdom of Alaha.”

LUKE CHAPTER 10
After these [things], Yeshue appointed from his disciples seventy others and sent them two by two before his face to every region and city that he was about to go. 2 And he said to them, “The harvest is great and the workers are few. Therefore, pray the Lord [of] the harvest to send out workers for his harvest. 3 Go! Behold, I send you as lambs among wolves. 4 Do not carry bags or sacks or shoes and do not greet anyone on the way. 5 And in whatever house you enter, first say, “Peace to this house.” 6 And if there is there a man of peace, your peace will rest Page 71 of 276

on him, but if not, your peace will return on you. 7 And remain in the same house, eating and drinking from their [food], for the worker is worthy of his wage and do not move from house to house. 8 And in whatever city you enter and they receive you, eat what is placed before you. 9 And heal those who are sick in it and say to them, “The kingdom of Alaha has come near to you.”10 But in whatever city you enter and they do not receive you, go out in the marketplace and say, 11 “Even the dust that sticks to us on our feet from your city, we shake off against you, but know this, that the kingdom of Alaha has come near to you.” 12 I say to you, it will be [more] pleasant for Sedum in that day than for that city. 13 Woe to you, Chorazin! Woe to you, Beth-Sayada! Because if the miracles that happened in you had happened in Tsur and Tsaidan, they would have long ago repented in sackclothes and in ash. 14 But for Tsur and Tsaidan it will be [more] pleasant in the judgment than for you. 15 And you, Kepharnakhum, who are lifted up to heaven will be brought down low to Sheol. 16 He who hears you hears me. And he who rejects you rejects me and he who rejects me rejects him who sent me.” 17 And those seventy whom he had sent returned with great joy and said to him, “Our Lord, even the demons were subject to us in your name.” 18 And he said to them, “I was seeing Satan fall like lightning from heaven. 19 Behold, I give to you authority to trample on serpents and scorpions and all the power of the enemy and nothing will hurt you. 20 But do not rejoice in this, that demons are subject to you, but rather rejoice that your names are written in heaven.” 21 Immediately, Yeshue was joyful in the Rukha d’Qudsha and said, “I thank you, my Father, Lord of heaven and earth, that you have hidden these [things] from wise and intelligent [ones] and have revealed them to infants, yes, my Father, because so was the will before you.” 22 And he turned toward his disciples and said to them, “Everything is delivered to me from my Father and no man knows who is the Son, except the Father and who is the Father, except the Son and to whom the Son wants to reveal [him]?” 23 And he turned toward his disciples privately and said, “Blessed are the eyes that see what you see. 24 For I say to you, many prophets and kings have wanted to see what you see and have not seen, and to hear what you hear and have not heard.” 25 And behold, a certain Saphra stood up to tempt him and said, “Teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 26 And Yeshue said to him, “How is it written in the Namusa? How do you read?” 27 He answered and said to him: You should love Marya your Alaha with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your strength and with all your mind, and your neighbor as yourself. 28 Yeshue said to him, “You have spoken correctly; do this and you will live.” 29 But wanting to justify himself, he said to him, “And who is my neighbor?” 30 Yeshue said to him, “A certain man went down from Urishlem to Irikhu, and robbers fell on him and they stripped him and beat him and left him when little life remained in him and they went away. 31 And a certain priest happened to be going down on that road and he saw him and passed by. 32 And so also a Lewaya came [and] arrived at that place and saw him and passed by. 33 Now a Shamraya man, while he was journeying, came where he was, and he saw him and had compassion on him. 34 And he came near and bandaged his wounds and poured wine and oil on them and placed him on his donkey and brought him to an inn and took care of him. 35 And at the break of the day he went away, he gave two denarii to the innkeeper and said to him “Care for him. And if you spend anything more, when I return I will give [it] to you.” 36 Therefore, which of these three seems to you to have been a neighbor to him who fell into the hands of robbers?” 37 And he said, “The one who had compassion on him.” Yeshue said to him, “Go, you should also do the same.” 38 And it happened that while they were journeying on the road, he entered a certain village and a woman whose name [was] Marta received him into her house. 39 And she had a sister whose name [was] Maryam. And she came [and] seated herself at the feet of our Lord and was listening to his words. 40 But Marta was occupied with much Page 72 of 276

service and came [and] said to him, “My Lord, do you not care that my sister has left me alone to serve? Tell her to help me.” 41 But Yeshue answered and said to her, “Marta, Marta, you are anxious and troubled about many [things]. 42 But there is one [thing] that is necessary and Maryam has chosen that good part for herself that will not be taken from her.”

LUKE CHAPTER 11
And it happened that while he was praying in a certain place, when he had finished, one of his disciples said to him, “Our Lord, teach us to pray, as Yukhanan also taught his disciples.” 2 Yeshue said to them, “When you pray, you should speak so: Our Father who is in heaven, your name will be made holy, your kingdom will come, your desire will occur, as in heaven, even also on earth. 3 Give us the bread of our necessity every day, 4 and forgive us [of] our sins, for we also forgive all who have wronged us. And do not let us enter into temptation, but deliver us from the Evil [one].” 5 And he said to them, “Who is among you who has a friend and would go to him at midnight and say to him, “My friend, lend me three loaves, 6 because a friend has come to me from a journey and I have nothing to place before him;” 7 and his friend would answer from within and say to him, “Do not trouble me, for behold, the door is shut and my children are with me in bed. I am not able to rise and give to you.” 8 I say to you, if on account of friendship he will not give to him, because of his persistence, he will rise up and give to him as much as is needed by him. 9 I say to you also, “Ask and it will be given to you, seek and you will find, knock and it will be opened to you,”10 for everyone who asks will receive and whoever seeks will find and who knocks, it will be opened to him. 11 For what father among you whose son asks him for bread will offer him a stone? And if he asks him for a fish, instead of a fish will he offer him a serpent? 12 And if he asks him for an egg, will he offer him a scorpion? 13 And if you who are evil know to give good gifts to your children, how much more will your Father from heaven give the Rukha d’Qudsha to those who ask him?” 14 And as he was casting out a demon because he was dumb, it occurred that after that demon went out that dumb [man] spoke and the crowds were amazed. 15 And some of them said, “This [man] casts out devils by Beelzebub, the prince of devils.” 16 And others, tempting him, were asking him for a sign from heaven. 17 But Yeshue, who knew their thoughts, said to them, “Every kingdom that is divided against itself will be ruined and a house that is separated from its essential [foundation] will fall. 18 And if Satan is divided against himself, how will his kingdom stand? For you say that I cast out devils by Beelzebub. 19 And if I cast out devils by Beelzebub, by whom do your sons cast [them] out? Because of this, they will be judges to you. 20 But if I cast out devils by the finger of Alaha, the kingdom of Alaha has come near to you. 21 When a strong man, being armed, guards his courtyard, his property is in quietness. 22 But if one who is stronger than him should come, he will conquer him [and] he will capture all of his armor on which he had relied and he will distribute his spoil. 23 He who is not with me is against me and he who does not gather with me actually scatters. 24 When an unclean spirit leaves a man, it goes [and] wanders around in places in which there is no water to seek rest for itself. And when it does not find [rest], it says, “I will return to my house from where I left.” 25 And if it comes [and] finds that it is swept and furnished, 26 then it goes [and] leads seven other spirits more evil that it and they enter and live there and the end [state] of that man becomes worse than his first [state].” 27 And while he was speaking these [things], a certain woman raised up her voice from the crowd and said to him, Page 73 of 276
1

“Blessed is the womb that bore you and the breasts that nursed you.” 28 He said to her, “Blessed are those who have heard the word of Alaha and keep it.” 29 And when the crowds were gathered, he began to say, “This evil generation seeks a sign and a sign will not be given to it, except the sign of Yaunan the prophet. 30 For as Yaunan was a sign to the Ninevites, so also the Son of Man will be [a sign] to this generation. 31 The queen of the south will stand in the judgment concerning the men of this generation and will condemn them, because she came from the far sides of the earth to hear the wisdom of Shelemun, and behold, one who is greater than Shelemun [is] here. 32 The Ninevite men will stand in the judgment concerning this generation and will condemn it, because they repented at the preaching of Yaunan, and behold, one who is greater than Yaunan [is] here. 33 No one lights a lamp and places it in a hidden place or under a basket, but rather [he places it] on a lamp stand, so that those who enter will see its light. 34 The lamp of your body is the eye. So when your eye is simple, your whole body will also be lightened. But if it is evil, your [whole] body will also be darkened. 35 Therefore, beware that the light that is in you is not darkness. 36 Now if your whole body is lightened and does not have any dark portion, all of it will be giving light, as a lamp by its flame gives you light.” 37 And while he was speaking, a certain Perishya asked him to eat with him and he entered [and] sat to eat. 38 And that Perishya, when he saw him, was amazed that he had not washed first before his meal. 39 And Yeshue said to him, “Now you Perishye cleanse the outside of the cup and of the dish, but your inside is full of rape and evil. 40 Fools! Did not he who made the outside also make the inside? 41 But what you have, give in alms, and behold, everything will be clean to you. 42 But woe to you, Perishye, because you tithe of mint and rue and every herb, yet you pass over justice and the love of Alaha. Now these [things] you ought to do and these [things] you should not leave out. 43 Woe to you, Perishye, because you love the chief seats in the synagogues and a greeting in the streets. 44 Woe to you, Saphrey and Perishye, hypocrites, because you are like graves that are unknown and men walk over them and do not know [it].” 45 And one of the Saphrey answered and said to him, “Teacher, when you say these [things], you reproach us also.” 46 And he said, “Woe also to you, Saphrey, because you make men carry heavy burdens, yet you do not touch the burdens with one of your fingers. 47 Woe to you, because you build tombs for the prophets whom your fathers killed. 48 Therefore, you bear witness to and approve of the works of your fathers, because they killed them and you build their graves. 49 Because of this, the wisdom of Alaha also said, “Behold, I will send them prophets and apostles, some of whom they will persecute and kill,” 50 so that the blood of all the prophets that was shed from when the world was established will be required from this generation, 51 from the blood of Habeil up to the blood of Zacharias, who was killed between the temple [and] the altar, yes, I say to you, it will be required from this generation. 52 Woe to you, Saphrey, because you have taken away the keys of knowledge. You have not entered and you have hindered those who were entering.” 53 And while he was speaking these [things] to them, the Saphrey and Perishye began to be offended and they grew angry and were criticizing his words. 54 And they were plotting against him in many [ways], seeking to catch something from his mouth in order to be able to accuse him.

LUKE CHAPTER 12
And when very large crowds were gathered, so that they were trampling one another, Yeshue began to say to his disciples, “First, beware among yourselves of the leaven of the Page 74 of 276
1

Perishye, which is hypocrisy. 2 And there is not anything that is covered that will not be revealed or that is hidden that will not be known. 3 For everything that you speak in darkness will be heard in the light, and what you murmur in closets into ears will be proclaimed on the roofs. 4 And I say to you, my friends, “Do not fear those who kill the body and afterwards have nothing more to do.” 5 But I will show you whom you should fear, him who after he has killed, has authority to send into Gehenna, yes, I say to you, “Fear this [one].” 6 Are not five birds sold for two coins? And one of them is not forgotten before Alaha. 7 But even the separate hairs of your head are all numbered. Do not fear, therefore, because you are more valuable than a multitude of birds. 8 And I say to you, whoever will confess me before men, the Son of Man also will confess him before the angels of Alaha. 9 But he who denies me before men will be denied himself before the angels of Alaha.10 And whoever speaks a word against the Son of Man will be forgiven, but he who blasphemes against the Rukha d’Qudsha will not be forgiven. 11 And when they bring you to the synagogues before chiefs and rulers, do not be anxious how you should answer or what you should say, 12 for the Rukha d’Qudsha will teach you at that moment what you ought to say.” 13 And one of that crowd said to him, “Teacher, tell my brother to divide the inheritance with me.” 14 And Yeshue said to him, “Man, who set me [as] a judge and distributor over you?” 15 And he said to his disciples, “Beware of all greediness, because life is not in the abundance of possessions.” 16 And he spoke a parable to them, “A certain rich man’s land brought to him many crops. 17 And he thought within himself and said, “What shall I do, because I do not have anywhere I can gather in my crops?” 18 And he said, “I will do this. I will pull down my storehouses and I will build and enlarge them and I will gather in there all my harvest and my goods.” 19 And I will say to my soul, “My soul, you have many goods that are laid up for many years. Take rest, eat, drink [and] be merry.” 20 But Alaha said to him, “Fool! In this night they will require your soul from you, and those [things] that you have prepared, for whom will they be?” 21 So is he who lays up for himself treasures and does not abound in Alaha.” 22 And he said to his disciples, “Because of this, I say to you, do not be anxious for yourselves, what you will eat or for your body, what you will wear, 23 for the soul is more than food, and the body than clothes. 24 Consider the ravens, for they neither sow nor reap and they do not have rooms and storehouses, yet Alaha provides for them. Therefore, how much more important are you than birds? 25 And which of you, being anxious, is able to add one cubit to his stature? 26 And if you are not even capable of a small [thing], why are you anxious about the rest? 27 Consider how the lilies grow, for they neither labor nor spin, but I say to you, not even Shelemun in all his glory was covered as one of these. 28 And if Alaha so clothes the grass that today is in the field and tomorrow falls into the oven, how much more you, [oh] little of faith? 29 And you should not seek what you will eat and what you will drink and your mind should not wander in these [things]. 30 For all these [things] the Gentiles of the world seek. Now your Father also knows that these [things] are necessary for you. 31 But seek the kingdom of Alaha and all these [things] will be added to you. 32 Do not fear, little flock, because your Father wants to give you the kingdom. 33 Sell your possessions and give alms. Make for yourselves bags that do not grow old and a treasure that does not fail in heaven, where a thief does not approach and moth does not corrupt. 34 For wherever your treasure is, there will your heart be also. 35 Your loins should be girded and your lamps lit. 36 And you should be like men who wait for their lord at that time when he returns from the wedding feast, so that when he comes and knocks, they may immediately open [the door] for him. 37 Blessed are those servants whose lord comes and finds them awake. Truly I say to you, he will gird up his loins and cause them to sit to eat and will cross over [and] serve them. 38 And if he comes in the second or third watch and finds [them] so, blessed are those servants. 39 Page 75 of 276

Now know this, that if the lord of the house had known in what watch the thief would come, he would have watched and would not have allowed his house to be broken into. 40 Therefore, you should also be prepared, because the Son of Man will come at that moment that you do not expect.” 41 Shimon Kipha said to him, “Our Lord, do you speak this parable to us or also to everyone?” 42 Yeshue said to him, “Who indeed is the faithful and wise steward, whose lord will place him over his service that he should give [him] a measured portion in its time? 43 Blessed is that servant whose lord comes [and] finds that he does so. 44 Truly I say to you, he will place him over all his possessions. 45 But if that servant says in his heart, “My lord delays to come,” and begins to beat the servants and the handmaids of his lord and begins to eat and to drink and to be drunk, 46 the lord of that servant will come in a day that he does not expect and in an hour that he does not know and will separate him and place his lot with those who are not faithful. 47 And the servant, who knows the will of his lord and does not prepare for him according to his will, will be beaten with many [stripes]. 48 But he who did not know, yet did something that was worthy of stripes, will be beaten with a few stripes, for anyone who is given much, much is required, and to whom they have committed much, they will require more by his hand. 49 I have come to send fire on the earth and I want to. Oh that it was already kindled! 50 And I have a immersion that I am immersed [with] and I am greatly pressured, until it is fulfilled. 51 Do you think that I have come to bring harmony on earth? I say to you, “No, but rather division.” 52 For from now on, there will be five in one house who are divided, three against two and two against three. 53 For father will be divided against his son and son against his father, mother against her daughter, and daughter against her mother, mother-in-law against her daughter-in-law, and daughter-in-law against her mother-in-law.” 54 And he said to the crowds, “When you see a cloud that rises from the west immediately you say, “Rain will come,” and it happens so. 55 And when the south [wind] blows, you say, “There will be heat,” and it happens. 56 Hypocrites! You know [how] to distinguish the appearance of the earth and of heaven. So how do you not distinguish this time? 57 And why of yourselves do you not judge [with] truthfulness? 58 For when you go with your adversary to the ruler, while you are on the road, make terms [with him] and be quit of him, so that he will not conduct you to the judge and the judge deliver you to the official and the official cast you in prison. 59 And I say to you, you will not leave there until you give back the last coin.”

LUKE CHAPTER 13
Now at that time, men came [and] told him about those Galilaye, whose blood Pilate had mingled with their sacrifices. 2 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “Do you think that these Galilaye were sinners more than all the Galilaye because it happened to them so? 3 No! And I say to you, but all of you will also be destroyed likewise, [if] you do [not] repent. 4 Or those eighteen, on whom the tower fell in Shilukha and killed them, do you think that they were sinners more than all the men who lived in Urishlem? 5 No! And I say to you, except all of you repent like them, you will be destroyed.” 6 And he spoke this parable, “A man had a fig tree that was planted in his vineyard, and he came [and] looked on it for fruit and did not find [any]. 7 And he said to the laborer, “Behold, [for] three years I have come [and] I looked for fruit on this fig tree and I have not found [any]. Cut it down. Why should the ground be wasted?” 8 The laborer said to him, “My lord, leave it even this year, until I work with it and manure it 9 and perhaps it will produce fruit. Yet if not, next year you may cut it down.”“10 And while Yeshue was teaching Page 76 of 276
1

on the Shabtha in one of the synagogues, 11 there was a woman there who had had a spirit of infirmity [for] eighteen years and she was bent over and was not able to straighten at all. 12 And Yeshue saw her and called her and said to her, “Woman, you are free from your infirmity.” 13 And he placed his hand on her and immediately she straightened and praised Alaha. 14 And the ruler of the synagogue, being angered because Yeshue had healed on the Shabtha, answered and said to the crowds, “There are six days in which you ought to work. You should come [and] be healed in them and not on the day of the Shabtha.” 15 And Yeshue answered and said to him, “Hypocrite! What one of you on the Shabtha does not untie his ox or his donkey from the stall and go [and] water [it]? 16 And this [woman], because she is a daughter of Avraham, and the Accuser has bound her, behold, eighteen years, is it not right that she should be freed from this bondage on the day of the Shabtha?” 17 And when he said these [things], all those who were opposing were ashamed and all the people were rejoicing at all the wonders that occurred by his hand. 18 And Yeshue said, “What is the kingdom of Alaha like and to what can I compare it? 19 It is like a grain of mustard seed, which a man took [and] threw into his garden. And it grew and became a large tree and a bird of heaven built a nest in its branches.” 20 Yeshue again said, “To what can I compare the kingdom of Alaha? 21 It is like leaven that a woman took and hid in three measures [of] flour until all was leavened.” 22 And he traveled into the villages and cities while teaching and going to Urishlem. 23 And a man asked him whether those who will live are few. And Yeshue said to them, 24 “Strive to enter through the narrow door, for I say to you, many will seek to enter and not be able. 25 From the time that the lord [of] the house will rise and shut the door, then you will stand outside and knock on the door and begin to say, “Our lord, our lord, open to us,” and he will answer and say, “I say to you, I do not know you. From where are you?” 26 And you will begin to say, “We have eaten and we drank before you and you have taught in our streets.” 27 And he will say to you, “I do not know you. From where are you? Depart from me, workers of falsehood.” 28 There will be there weeping and gnashing of teeth when you see Avraham and Iskhaq and Yaquv and all the prophets in the kingdom of Alaha, but you will be thrown outside. 29 And they will come from the east and from the west and from the south and from the north and will sit to eat in the kingdom of Alaha. 30 And behold, there are last who will be first and there are first who will be last.” 31 On the same day, some of the Perishye approached and were saying to him, “Go away, leave here, because Herod wants to kill you.” 32 Yeshue said to them, “Go, tell this fox, “Behold, I will cast out demons and do healings today and tomorrow and on the third day I will be finished.” 33 Nevertheless, it is right for me to heal today and tomorrow and I will go on another day, because it is not possible that the prophet should be hurt outside of Urishlem. 34 Urishlem, Urishlem, she has killed the prophets and stoned those who were sent to her. How many times did I want to gather your children as a hen who gathers her chicks under her wings and you did not want [it]? 35 Behold, your house is left desolate, for I say to you, you will not see me until you say, “Blessed is he who comes in the name of Marya.”“

LUKE CHAPTER 14
And it happened that when he entered the house of one of the rulers of the Perishye to eat bread on the day of the Shabtha, they were watching him. 2 And behold, there was a certain man before him who was swollen with water. 3 And Yeshue spoke out and said to the Saphrey and Perishye, “Is it lawful to heal on the Shab”tha?” 4 And they were quiet and he took him and Page 77 of 276
1

healed him and let him go. 5 And he said to them, “Which of you whose son or ox falls into a well on the day of the Shabtha does not immediately draw up [and] lift him out?” 6 And they did not find an answer to give to him about this. 7 And he spoke a parable to those who were invited there because he saw those who were choosing the places that were the best seats. 8 When you are invited by someone to a banquet, do not go [and] seat yourself in the best seat, lest someone who is more honorable than you should be invited there, 9 And he who called you and him will come and say to you, “Give place to this [man].” And you will be ashamed as you stand and take the last place.10 On the contrary, when you are invited, go [and] seat yourself at the end, so that when he who called you comes, he will say to you, “My friend, move yourself up higher and be seated,” and you will have praise before all who sit to eat with you, 11 because everyone who elevates himself will be humbled, and everyone who humbles himself will be raised up.” 12 And he spoke also to him who invited him, “When you make a meal or a dinner, do not call your friends, not even your brothers or your kinsmen, and not your rich neighbors, lest they also invite you and you have this payment. 13 On the contrary, when you make a feast, call the poor, the hurt, the lame, [and] the blind. 14 And you [will have] blessing, because they have nothing to repay you, for your payment will be in the resurrection of the just.” 15 And when one of those who were seated to eat heard these [things], he said to him, “Blessed is he who will eat bread in the kingdom of Alaha.” 16 Yeshue said to him, “A certain man made a great supper and called many. 17 And he sent his servant at the time of the supper to tell those who were called, “Behold, everything is prepared for you. Come.” 18 And all began as one to excuse themselves. The first said to him, “I have bought a field and I need to go out [and] see it. I beg you, allow me to be excused.” 19 Another said, “I have bought five yoke [of] oxen and I am going to prove them. I beg you, allow me to be excused.” 20 And another said, “I have taken a wife and because of this, I am not able to come.” 21 And that servant came and told his lord these [things]. Then the lord of the house was angry and said to his servant, “Go out quickly into the marketplaces and streets of the city and bring here the poor and the afflicted and the lame and the blind.” 22 And the servant said, “My lord, it is as you commanded and yet there is room.” 23 And the lord said to his servant, “Go out into the roads and among the hedges and urge them to enter, so that my house may be full, 24 for I say to you, not one of those men who were called will taste of my supper.”“ 25 And while large crowds were going with him, he turned and said to them, 26 “He who comes to me and does not set aside his father and his mother and his brothers and his sisters and his wife and his children and also himself is not able to be a disciple of me. 27 And he who does not bear his cross and follow me is not able to be a disciple of me. 28 For which of you who wants to build a tower does not first sit down [and] think about his expenses, whether he has [enough] to complete it, 29 so that when he has not laid the foundation and is not able to finish [it], all who see will mock him 30 and say, “This man began to build and was not able to finish [it]”? 31 Or what king who goes to war to fight with his neighboring king does not first think whether he is able to meet with ten thousand, him who comes against him with twenty thousand? 32 And if not, while he is far away from him, he will send an ambassador and ask for peace. 33 So, every one of you who does not forsake all his wealth is not able to be a disciple of me. 34 Salt is good, but if even the salt should lose its flavor, with what will it be salted? 35 It is fit neither for the land nor for the dung-heap. They put it outside. He who has ears to hear should hear.”

Now the tax collectors and sinners came near to him in order to hear him. 2 And the Saphrey and Perishye were murmuring and saying, “This [man] receives sinners and eats with them.” 3 And Yeshue told them this parable. 4 “What man among you who has one hundred sheep and if one of them should be lost, does not leave the ninety-nine in the open country and go [and] seek that one which is lost until he finds it? 5 And when he has found it, he will rejoice and take it on his shoulders 6 and come to his house and call to his friends and his neighbors and say to them, “Rejoice with me, because I have found my sheep that was lost.” 7 I say to you, so there will be [more] joy in heaven for one sinner who repents than for ninety-nine just [ones] who do not need repentance. 8 Or what woman, who has ten coins and loses one of them, does not light a lamp and sweep the house and search for it carefully until she finds it? 9 And when she has found it, she will call her friends and her neighbors and say to them, “Rejoice with me, because I have found my coin that was lost.”10 I say to you, so there will be joy before the angels of Alaha over one sinner that repents.” 11 And Yeshue spoke again to them, “A certain man had two sons. 12 And his younger son said to him, “My father, give me the portion that is coming to me from your house, and he divided to them his wealth.” 13 And after a few days, his younger son gathered up everything that came to him and went to a region far away and there spent his wealth living wastefully. 14 And when he had used up everything that he had, a great famine occurred in that region and he began to have need. 15 And he went [and] joined himself to one of the citizens of that land and he sent him into the field to tend the pigs. 16 And he desired to fill his stomach from the carob husks that the pigs were eating, and no one gave to him. 17 And when he came to himself, he said, “How many hired servants are now [at] my father’s house who have an abundance of bread and I am perishing here with my hunger?” 18 I will rise up [and] go to my father and say to him, “My father, I have sinned against heaven and before you, 19 and therefore I am not worthy to be called your son. Make me like one of your hired servants.” 20 And he rose up [and] came to his father. And while he was far away, his father saw him and had compassion on him and ran [and] fell on his neck and kissed him. 21 And his son said to him, “My father, I have sinned against heaven and before you and I am not worthy to be called your son.” 22 And his father said to his servants, “Bring out the best robe, clothe him, and place a ring on his hand and put shoes on him 23 and bring [and] kill the ox that is fattened and let us eat and be merry, 24 because this, my son, was dead and [now] is alive, and he was lost and [now] is found,” and they began to be merry. 25 Now his oldest son was in the field and when he arrived and came near to the house, he heard the sound of the singing of many. 26 And he called to one of the boys and asked him, “What is this?” 27 He said to him, “Your brother has come and your father has killed the ox that is fattened, because he has received him [back] healthy.” 28 And he was angry and did not want to enter. So his father came out [and] begged him. 29 And he said to his father, “Behold, how many years have I worked for you [in] service and never transgressed your commandment, yet during all this time you did not give me a goat to make merry with my friends. 30 But for this your son, after he has squandered your wealth with harlots and has come [home], you kill for him the ox that is fattened.” 31 His father said to him, “My son, you always are with me and everything of mine is yours, 32 but it is right for us to make merry and to rejoice, because your brother was dead, yet [now] is alive and was lost, yet [now] is found.”

LUKE CHAPTER 16
Page 79 of 276

And he spoke a parable to his disciples, “There was a certain rich man, and he had a steward, and they had accused him of squandering his wealth. 2 And his lord called him and said to him, “What is this that I hear about you? Give me an accounting of your stewardship, for you can no longer be a steward for me.” 3 That steward said to himself, “What should I do, for my lord has taken from me the stewardship? I am not able to dig, and I am ashamed to beg. 4 I know what I will do so that when I am dismissed from the stewardship, they will receive me into their houses.” 5 And he called each one of his lord’s debtors and said to the first, “How much do you owe my lord?” 6 He said to him, “One hundred measures [of] oil.” He said to him, “Take your book and sit down quickly; write fifty measures.” 7 And he said to another, “And what do you owe my lord?” He said to him, “One hundred cors [of] wheat.” He said to him, “Take your book and sit down; write eighty cors.” 8 And our Lord praised the unjust steward because he had acted wisely, for the sons of this world are wiser than the sons of light, in this, their generation. 9 And also I say to you, “Make friends for yourself from this wealth of evil that when it is fully spent, they may welcome you into their everlasting shelters.”10 He who is trustworthy in little also is trustworthy in much, and he who is unjust in little also is unjust in much. 11 If therefore you are not trustworthy [ones] with the wealth of evil, who will entrust the truth to you? 12 And if you have not been found trustworthy [ones] in that which is not yours, who will give to you your own?” 13 There is no servant that is able to serve two masters, for either he will hate the one and love the other or honor the one and despise the other. You are not able to serve Alaha and wealth. 14 Now the Perishye, when they heard all these [things], because they loved money, were mocking him. 15 And Yeshue said to them, “You are those who justify themselves before men. But Alaha knows your hearts, because what is esteemed among men is abominable before Alaha. 16 The Namusa and the prophets [were] until Yukhanan. Since then, the kingdom of Alaha is preached and all crowd to enter it. 17 And it is easier for heaven and earth to pass away than [for] one letter of the Namusa to pass away. 18 Everyone who dismisses his wife and marries another commits adultery, and everyone who marries a forsaken woman commits adultery. 19 Now there was a certain rich man and he wore linen and purple. And every day he lived in pleasure splendidly. 20 And there was a certain poor man whose name was Leayzar. And he lay at the gate of that rich man, stricken with boils. 21 And he longed to fill his stomach from the crumbs that fell from the table of that rich man. But even the dogs came [and] licked his boils. 22 Now it happened and that poor [man] died and the angels carried him to the bosom of Avraham. And also that rich man died and was buried. 23 And while he was tormented in Sheol, he lifted up his eyes from far away and saw Avraham and Leayzar in his bosom. 24 And he cried with a loud voice and said, “My father Avraham, have compassion on me and send Leayzar to dip the tip of his finger in water and to moisten my tongue for me, for, behold, I am tormented in this flame.” 25 Avraham said to him, “My son, remember that you received your good [things] during your life and Leayzar his bad [things] and now, behold, he is refreshed here and you are tormented. 26 And with all these [things] a great chasm is placed between us and you, so that those who want to pass over from here to you are not able, nor from there to pass over to us.” 27 Then he said to him, “I beg of you, my father, to send him to the house of my father, 28 for I have five brothers. Let him go [and] witness to them so that they will not also come to this place of torment.” 29 Avraham said to him, “They have Mushe and the prophets. They should hear them.” 30 And he said to him, “No, my father Avraham, but if someone from the dead would go to them, they would repent.” 31 Avraham said to him, “If they will not hear Mushe and the prophets, even if someone would rise from the dead, they will not believe him.”“ Page 80 of 276

LUKE CHAPTER 17
And Yeshue said to his disciples, “It is not possible that offenses not come, but woe to him by whose hand they come! 2 It would be better for him if a millstone of a donkey were hung on his neck and he were thrown into the sea, than to cause one of these little ones to stumble. 3 Take heed to yourselves. If your brother sins, reprove him. And if he repents, forgive him. 4 And if he offends you seven times in a day and in a day seven times he turns to you and says, “I repent,” forgive him.” 5 And the apostles said to our Lord, “Increase faith to us.” 6 He said to them, “If you have faith like a grain of mustard seed, you could say to this tree, “Be uprooted and be planted in the sea,” and it will obey you. 7 And which of you who has a servant who plows or tends a flock, and when he comes from the field says immediately to him, “Pass through, sit down to eat?” 8 On the contrary, he says to him, “Prepare something to eat for me and gird up your loins [and] serve me until I have eaten and drunk, and afterwards you also may eat and drink.” 9 Does that servant receive his thanks because he did what was commanded him? I think not.10 So also, when you do all these [things] that are commanded to you, say, “We are unprofitable servant[s],” because what we ought to do we have done.” 11 And it happened that when Yeshue went to Urishlem he passed through the Shamraye to Galila. 12 And when he was about to enter a certain village, ten men, lepers, met him and stood at a distance. 13 And they lifted their voice[s] and said, “Our Master, Yeshue, have compassion on us.” 14 And when he saw them, he said to them, “Go [and] show yourselves to the priests.” And as they went, they were cleansed. 15 And one of them, when he saw that he was cleansed, returned and with a loud voice was praising Alaha. 16 And he fell on his face before the feet of Yeshue, giving him thanks, and this [man] was a Shamraya. 17 And Yeshue answered and said, “Were there not ten who were cleansed? Where are the nine? 18 Did [no one else] determine to come [and] give praise to Alaha, except this [one] who is from a foreign nation?” 19 And he said to him, “Stand up [and] go! Your faith has given you life.” 20 And when some of the Perishye asked Yeshue when the kingdom of Alaha would come, he answered and said to them, “The kingdom of Alaha does not come with watching,” 21 nor should they say, “Behold, here it is,” and “behold, there it is,” for behold, the kingdom of Alaha is in the middle of you.” 22 And he said to his disciples, “The days will come when you will desire to see one of the days of the Son of Man and you will not see. 23 And if they say to you, “Behold, here he is,” and “behold, there he is,” you should not go. 24 For as lightning shines from heaven and all under heaven is lightened, so the Son of Man will be in his day, 25 but first he is going to suffer many [things] and be rejected by this generation. 26 And as it was in the days of Nukh, so will it be in the days of the Son of Man, 27 for they were eating and drinking and taking wives and being given to husbands, until the day that Nukh entered the ark and the flood came and destroyed everyone. 28 And [it will be] again as it was in the days of Lut, when they were eating and drinking and buying and selling and planting and building. 29 And on the day that Lut went out from Sedum, Marya rained fire and sulphur from heaven and destroyed all of them. 30 So it will be in the day that the Son of Man is revealed. 31 In that day, he who is on the roof and his goods are in the house should not come down to take them, and he who is in the field should not turn back. 32 Remember the wife of Lut. 33 He who wants to save his soul will lose it, and he who loses his soul will save it. 34 I say to you, in that night, two will be in one bed. One will be taken and the other will be left. 35 Two [women] will be grinding together. One will Page 81 of 276
1

be taken and the other will be left. 36 Two [men] will be in the field. One will be taken and the other will be left.” 37 They answered and said to him, “To where, our Lord?” He said to them, “Where the body [is], there the eagles will be gathered.”

LUKE CHAPTER 18
And he also spoke to them a parable that at all times they should pray and not be weary. “There was a certain judge in a certain city who did not fear Alaha and did not reverence men. 3 And there was a certain widow in that city and she came to him and said, “Avenge me of my adversary.” 4 And he did not want to [for] a long time, but afterwards he said to himself, “Although I do not fear Alaha and I do not reverence men, 5 yet, because this widow troubles me, I will avenge her, so that she is not coming continually [and] annoying me.”“ 6 And our Lord said, “Hear what the unjust judge said. 7 And will not Alaha perform vengeance even more for his chosen [ones], who call on him by day and by night, and be long-suffering with them? 8 I say to you, he will perform their vengeance quickly. Nevertheless, will the Son of Man come and will he indeed find faith on the earth?” 9 And he spoke this parable against those men who were confident in themselves that they were just and were despising everyone. 10 “Two men went up to the temple to pray. One [was] a Perishya and the other a tax collector. 11 And that Perishya was standing by himself and so was praying, “Alaha, I thank you that I am not like the rest of men, extortioners and greedy [ones] and adulterers, nor like this tax collector. 12 On the contrary, I fast twice in a week and I tithe everything that I gain.” 13 But that tax collector was standing far away and did not even want to raise his eyes to heaven, but was beating on his breast and saying, “Alaha, have mercy on me, a sinner.” 14 I say to you, this [man] went down to his house more justified than that Perishya, for everyone who raises himself up will be humbled, and everyone who humbles himself will be raised up.” 15 And they also brought him infants that he would touch them, and his disciples saw them and rebuked them. 16 And Yeshue called them and said to them, “Let the children come to me, and do not hinder them, for the kingdom of heaven belongs to those who are like these. 17 Truly I say to you, whoever does not receive the kingdom of Alaha as a child will not enter it.” 18 And one of the rulers asked him and said to him, “Good teacher, what must I do to inherit eternal life?” 19 Yeshue said to him, “Why do you call me good? There is none good, except one, Alaha. 20 You know the commandments: Do not kill, and do not commit adultery, and do not steal, and do not bear witness that is false. Honor your father and your mother.” 21 He said to him, “All these [things] I have kept from my youth.” 22 And when Yeshue heard these [things] he said to him, “You lack one [thing]. Go [and] sell everything that you have and give to the poor and you will have a treasure in heaven and follow me.” 23 But when he heard these [things], he was sad, for he was very rich. 24 And when Yeshue saw that he was sad, he said, “How difficult [it is] for those who have possessions to enter the kingdom of Alaha, 25 because it is easier for a rope to enter through the eye of a needle, than [for] a rich man [to enter] the kingdom of Alaha.” 26 Those who heard were saying to him, “Then who is able to have life?” 27 And Yeshue said, “Those [things] that with men are not possible, with Alaha are possible.” 28 Shimon Kipha said to him, “Behold, we have left everything and have followed you.” 29 Yeshue said to him, “Truly I say to you, there is no man who has left houses or parents or brothers or wife or children because of the kingdom of Alaha 30 and will not receive doubly many [things] in this time, and in the age to come, eternal life.” 31 And Yeshue took his twelve

Page 82 of 276

and said to them, “Behold, we go up to Urishlem and all the things that are written in the prophets about the Son of Man will be fulfilled, 32 for he will be delivered to the Gentiles and they will mock him and they will spit in his face. 33 And they will beat him and they will despise him and they will kill him, and on the third day he will rise up.” 34 And they did not understand any of these [things], but this saying was hidden from them and they did not know these [things] that were spoken to them. 35 And when he was near to Irikhu, a certain blind man was sitting by the side of the road, begging. 36 And he heard the sound of the crowd that was passing by and he asked, “Who is this [man]?” 37 They said to him, “Yeshue the Natsraya is passing by.” 38 And he cried out and said, “Yeshue, Son of Dawid, have compassion on me.” 39 And those who were preceding Yeshue rebuked him that he should be silent, but he cried out all the more, “Son of Dawid, have compassion on me.” 40 And Yeshue stopped and commanded that they bring him to him. And when he was near to him, he asked him 41 and said to him, “What do you want me to do for you?” And he said, “My Lord, that I may see.” 42 And Yeshue said to him, “See! Your faith has given you life.” 43 And immediately, he saw and followed him and praised Alaha. And all the people who saw [it] were giving glory to Alaha.

LUKE CHAPTER 19
And when Yeshue entered and passed through into Irikhu, 2 there was a certain man whose name was Zakai, a rich man and the chief of the tax collectors. 3 And he wanted to see who Yeshue was, and was not able to from the crowd, because Zakai was small in his stature. 4 And he ran before Yeshue and climbed up a barren fig tree to see him, because he was going to pass by that way. 5 And when Yeshue came to that place, he saw him and said to him, “Hurry, come down, Zakai, for today I must be in your house.” 6 And he hurried [and] came down and received him, rejoicing. 7 And when all of them saw, they were murmuring and saying that he had entered [and] lodged with a sinful man. 8 And Zakai stood up and said to Yeshue, “Behold, my Lord, half of my possessions I give to the poor and to everyone I have defrauded anything I repay fourfold.” 9 Yeshue said to him, “Today life has come to this house, because this [man] also is a son of Avraham,10 for the Son of Man is come to seek and to give life to him who was perishing.” 11 And when they heard these [things], he went on to speak a parable because he was near to Urishlem and they thought that the kingdom of Alaha was going to be revealed at that time. 12 And he said, “A certain man, a great nobleman, went to a far country to receive a kingdom for himself and [then] to return. 13 And he called his ten servants and gave them ten coins, and said to them, “Do business until I come.” 14 But his citizens hated him, and sent ambassadors after him and were saying, “We do not want this [man] to rule over us.” 15 And when he received the kingdom and was returning, he said that they should call to him those [of] his servants to whom he had given money, to know what each and every one of them had gained. 16 And the first came said, “My lord, your coin has gained ten coins.” 17 He said to him, “Well done, good servant. Because you have been found faithful with little, you will be a ruler over ten walled cities.” 18 And the second came and said, “My lord, your coin has made five coins.” 19 He also said to this [man], “You also will be a ruler over five walled cities.” 20 And another came and said, “My lord, behold, your coin has been with me since it was placed in a linen cloth, 21 for I feared you because you are a harsh man and you take up what you have not laid down and you reap what you have not sown.” 22 He said to him, “From your mouth I will judge you, evil Page 83 of 276
1

servant. You knew me, that I am a harsh man and [that] I take up what I have not laid down and [that] I reap what I have not sown. 23 Why did you not give my money to the exchange and I could come [and] demand it with its interest?” 24 And to those who were standing before him, he said, “Take from him the coin and give [it] to the one who has ten coins.” 25 They were saying to him, “Our lord, he has ten coins.” 26 He said to them, “I say to you, to whomever has, it will be given, and whoever does not have, even that which he has will be taken from him. 27 But my enemies, those who did not want me to rule over them, bring them and kill them before me.”“ 28 And when he had said these [things], Yeshue left to travel on to Urishlem. 29 And when he arrived at Beth-Pageh and Beth-Naiya on the side of the mountain that is called the Mount of Olives, he sent two of his disciples. 30 And he said to them, “Go to the village that is opposite us, and when you enter it, Behold, you will find a colt that is tied, on which a man has never ridden. Untie [and] bring it. 31 And if anyone asks you, “Why are you untying it,” say thus to him, “Our Lord needs [it].”“ 32 And those, who were sent, went and found [it] as he had told them. 33 And while they were untying the colt, its owners said to them, “Why are you untying that colt?” 34 And they said to them, “Our Lord needs [it].” 35 And they brought it to Yeshue and they threw their garments on the colt and mounted Yeshue on it. 36 And as he went along, they were spreading their garments on the road. 37 And when he came near to the descent of the Mount of Olives, the whole crowd of disciples began rejoicing and praising Alaha with a loud voice for all the miracles that they had seen. 38 And they were saying: Blessed is the king who has come in the name of Marya. Peace in heaven and glory in the highest. 39 And some of the Perishye from among the crowds were saying to him, “My Master, rebuke your disciples.” 40 He said to them, “I say to you, if these would be quiet, the stones would cry out.” 41 And when he came near and saw the city, he wept over it. 42 And he said, “Would that you had known those [things] that were for your peace, even in this your day, but now they are hidden from your eyes. 43 But the days will come to you when your enemies will surround you and will pressure you on every side. 44 And they will overthrow you and your children within you and they will not leave a stone on a stone in you, for you did not know the time of your visitation.” 45 And when he entered the temple, he began to throw out those who were selling and buying in it. 46 And he said to them, “It is written: My house is a house of prayer, but you have made it a den of robbers.” 47 And he taught everyday in the temple and the chief priests and Saphrey and elders of the people were seeking to destroy him. 48 And they were not able to find what to do to him, for all the people were intent to hear him.

LUKE CHAPTER 20
And it happened [that] on one of the days when he was teaching to the people in the temple and preaching, the chief priests and Saphrey with the elders rose up against him. 2 And they were saying to him, “Tell us with what authority you do these [things] and who is it who gave you this authority?” 3 Yeshue answered and said to them, “I will also ask you a question and [you] tell me, 4 the immersion of Yukhanan, was it from heaven or from men?” 5 And they were reasoning among themselves and were saying, “If we say from heaven, he will say to us, “Then why do you not believe him?” 6 And if we say from men, the people will stone us, for they all are convinced that Yukhanan was a prophet.”And they said to him, “We do not know from where it is.” 8 Yeshue said to them, “Neither will I tell you with what authority I do these Page 84 of 276
1

[things].” 9 And he began to speak this parable to the people. “A certain man planted a vineyard and handed it over to workers and stayed away [for] a long time.10 And in time, he sent his servant to the workers that they should give him of the fruit of the vineyard. But the workers beat him and sent him away empty-handed. 11 And in addition he sent another servant. And they also beat that one and shamefully treated him and sent him away empty-handed. 12 And in addition he sent a third. And also they wounded that one and threw him out. 13 The lord of the vineyard said, “What should I do? I will send my beloved son. Perhaps they will see him and respect [him].” 14 But when the workers saw him they were reasoning among themselves and were saying, “This is the heir. Come, let us kill him and the inheritance will be ours.” 15 And they threw him outside of the vineyard and killed him. Therefore what should the lord of the vineyard do to them? 16 He will come and destroy those workers and will give the vineyard to others.” And when they heard [it] they said, “This should not be.” 17 And he gazed at them and said, “And what is that which is written: The stone that the builders rejected has become the head of the corner of the cornerstone? 18 And whoever will fall on that stone will be bruised, and whomever it falls on, it will blow him away [as chaff].” 19 And the chief priests and Saphrey were wanting to lay hands on him at that time, yet they were afraid of the people, for they knew that he had spoken this parable against them. 20 And they sent to him spies who were acting like just [men] to catch him in speech and to deliver him to the judge and to the authority of the governor. 21 And they asked him and said to him, “Teacher, we know that you speak and teach rightly and do not respect persons, but rather you teach the way of Alaha with truthfulness. 22 Is it lawful for us to give the poll tax to Caesar or not?” 23 But he perceived their craftiness and said, “Why do you tempt me? 24 Show me a denarius. Whose image and inscriptions are on it?” And they said, “That of Caesar.” 25 Yeshue said to them, “Give therefore that which is of Caesar to Caesar and that which is of Alaha to Alaha.” 26 And they were not able to capture a word from him before the people, and they marveled at his answer and were silent. 27 And some of the Zaduqaye came near, those who were saying that there is no resurrection, and they asked him 28 and said to him, “Teacher, Mushe wrote to us, “If a brother of a man, who has a wife, should die without children, he should take the wife of his brother and raise up seed for his brother.” 29 Now there were seven brothers. The first took a wife and died without children. 30 And the second took her for his wife, and this [one] died without children. 31 And the third took her again, and so also the seven of them. And they died and did not leave children. 32 And finally the woman also died. 33 Therefore, in the resurrection, whose wife will she be, for seven of them married her?” 34 Yeshue said to them, “The children of this world take women and women are [given] to men, 35 but those who are worthy of that world and of the resurrection that is from the dead neither take women nor are women [given] to men. 36 For neither are they able to die again, for they are like the angels and are sons of Alaha, because they are sons of the resurrection. 37 Now that the dead will rise even Mushe showed, for he mentioned [it] at the bush when he said: Marya, the Alaha of Avraham and the Alaha of Iskhaq and the Alaha of Yaquv. 38 And he is not the Alaha of the dead, but of the living, for all are alive to him.” 39 And some of the Saphrey answered and said to him, “Teacher, you have spoken well.” 40 And they did not dare to ask him about anything again. 41 And he said to them, “In what way do the Saphrey say concerning Meshikha that he is the Son of Dawid? 42 Even Dawid said in the book of Psalms: Marya said to my Lord, sit at my right [hand] 43 until I place your enemies under your feet. 44 If therefore Dawid called him, “My Lord,” how is he his son?” 45 And while all the people were listening, he said to his disciples, 46 “Beware of the Saphrey who want to walk in robes and love a greeting in the streets and the chief places in the synagogues and the best seats at meals. 47 Those who devour the houses of widows with the Page 85 of 276

pretext of lengthening their prayers, the same will receive a greater judgment.”

And Yeshue looked at the rich [men] who were putting their gifts in the treasury. 2 And he also saw a certain poor widow who put in two small coins. 3 And he said, “I speak the truth to you that this poor widow has put in more than everyone. 4 For all of these have put into the place of the offerings of Alaha from what was left over to them, but this [widow] from her need has put in all that she owned.” 5 And while some were speaking about the temple, how it was adorned with beautiful stones and with gifts, Yeshue said to them, 6 These [things] that you see, the days will come in which [one] stone will not be left on [another] stone that is not pulled down. 7 And they asked him and said, “Teacher, when will these [things] be and what is the sign when these [things] are about to happen?” 8 And he said to them, “See [that] you are not deceived, for many will come in my name and will say, “I am Meshikha, and the time draws near,” but you should not follow them. 9 And when you hear of wars and riots, do not fear, for these [things] are going to happen first, but the end will not yet have arrived,10 for nation will rise against nation and kingdom against kingdom 11 and great earthquakes will occur in various places, and famines and plagues, and there will be fears and panic, and great signs from heaven will be seen and there will be much foul weather. 12 But before all these [things], they will lay hands on you and persecute you and deliver you to the synagogues and to prison, and they will bring you before kings and governors on account of my name. 13 But it will happen to you for a testimony. 14 And put [it] in your heart[s] that you should not be learning to make a defense, 15 for I will give to you a mouth and wisdom so that all your enemies will not be able to stand against it. 16 And your fathers and your brothers and your kinsmen and your friends will betray you and they will kill some of you. 17 And you will be hated by everyone on account of my name, 18 yet not a hair from your head will be hurt. 19 And by your patience you will gain your life. 20 And when you see Urishlem [with] an army surrounding it, then know that its destruction draws near. 21 Then those who are in Yehuda should flee to the mountain and those who are within it should flee and [those] in the villages should not enter it, 22 because these are the days of vengeance that everything that is written will be fulfilled. 23 And woe to those who are pregnant and to those who are nursing in those days, for there will be a great torment in the land and wrath on this people. 24 And they will fall by the edge of the sword and be led away captive to every land. And Urishlem will be trampled by the Gentiles until the times of the Gentiles will be fulfilled. 25 And there will be signs in the sun and in the moon and in the stars, and on the earth the torment of the nations and anxiety from the roaring of the sea, 26 and a shaking that draws out the lives of men from the fear of what is about to come on the earth, and the powers of heaven will be shaken. 27 And then they will see the Son of Man who will come in the clouds with much power and great glory. 28 And when these [things] begin to happen, take heart and lift up your heads, because your deliverance is near.” 29 And he told them a parable: “Look at the fig tree and all the trees, 30 because when they bud, you understand immediately from them that summer is near. 31 Likewise also, when you see these [things] that are happening, know that the kingdom of Alaha is near. 32 Truly I say to you, this generation will not pass away until all these [things] happen. 33 Heaven and earth will pass away, yet my words will not pass away. 34 And take heed to yourselves that your hearts should never become heavy in excess and in drunkenness and in Page 86 of 276

the anxiety of the world, and that day should come suddenly on you. 35 For as a snare it will ensnare all those who live on the face of all the earth. 36 Therefore, watch always and pray that you will be worthy to escape these [things] that are going to happen and [that] you will stand before the Son of Man.” 37 And in the daytime, he was teaching in the temple and at night he went out [and] was staying in the mountain that was called the Mount of Olives. 1 And in the morning he came again to the temple and all the people came to him. And while he was sitting, he was teaching them. 2 And the Saphrey and Perishye brought a woman who was caught in adultery. And placing her in the middle, 3 they said to him, “Teacher, this woman was caught openly in the act of adultery. 4 And in the Namusa of Mushe, he commanded that we stone those who are like these. Therefore, what do you say?” 5 They said this tempting him, so that they would have [cause] to accuse him. But Yeshue, after he had stooped down, wrote on the ground. 6 And when they continued asking him, he straightened himself and said to them, “Whoever is without sin may throw a stone at her first.” 7 And again after he had stooped down, he wrote on the ground. 8 And when they heard [it], they went out one by one beginning with the elders. And the woman was left by herself, being in the middle.9 And after Yeshue straightened himself, he said to the woman, “Where are they? Does no man condemn you? ” 10 And that [one] said, “No man, Marya.” And Yeshue said, “Neither do I condemn you. Go and from now on, do not sin again.”1 38 And all the people were coming early to him to the temple to hear his word.

LUKE CHAPTER 22
Now the Feast of Unleavened Bread, that is called the Petskha, was near 2 and the chief priests and Saphrey were seeking how to kill him, for they were afraid of the people. 3 And Satan entered into Yehudah, who was called Sekariuta, who was from the number of the twelve. 4 And he went [and] talked with the chief priests and Saphrey and captains of the temple about how he might deliver him to them. 5 And they rejoiced and pledged to give him money. 6 And he promised them and sought an opportunity to deliver him to them apart from the crowd. 7 And the day of the Feast of Unleavened Bread arrived, during which was the custom that the Petskha be killed. 8 And Yeshue sent Kipha and Yukhanan and said to them, “Go [and] prepare for us the Petskha that we may eat.” 9 And they said to him, “Where do you want us to prepare [it]?”10 He said to them, “Behold, when you enter the city, a man will meet you who is bearing a jar of water. Follow him. 11 And where he enters, say to the lord of the house, “Our Master says, Where is a place of lodging where I may eat the Petskha with my disciples?” 12 And behold, he will show you a certain large upper room that is furnished. There make ready.” 13 And they went [and] found [the man] as he had told them and they prepared the Petskha. 14 And when the time was come, Yeshue and the twelve apostles with him came [and] sat to eat. 15 And he said to them, “I have greatly desired to eat this Petskha with you before I suffer. 16 For I say to you, from now on I will not eat until it is fulfilled in the kingdom of Alaha.” 19 And he took bread and gave thanks and broke [it] and gave [it] to them and said, “This is my body that is given for your sakes. This do for my remembrance.” 20 And likewise also, concerning the cup, after they had eaten supper he said, “This cup [is] the new covenant in my blood that is shed on behalf of you. 21 But, behold,

the hand of my betrayer [is] on the table 22 and the Son of Man dies as it was determined. But woe to that man by whose hand he is betrayed!” 23 And they began to examine among themselves which one of them indeed it was who was going to do this. 24 And there was also a conflict among them about which of them was the greatest. 25 And Yeshue said to them, “The kings of the Gentiles are their lords and those who are authorities over them are called workers of good. 26 But you are not so, but he who is the greatest among you must be as the least and he who is chief as a servant. 27 For who is greater, he who sits to eat or he who serves? Is it not he who sits to eat? But I am among you as one who serves. 28 But you are those who have continued with me in my trials. 29 And I promise to you, as my Father has promised a kingdom to me, 30 that you will eat and drink at the table of my kingdom and you will sit on thrones and you will judge the twelve tribes of Israyel.” 31 And Yeshue said to Shimon, “Shimon, behold, Satan is resigned to sift you like wheat. 32 And I have prayed for you that your faith would not be lacking. You also in time will turn and strengthen your brothers.” 33 And Shimon said to him, “My Lord, I am ready [to go] with you even to prison and to death.” 34 Yeshue said to him, “I say to you, Shimon, that the rooster will not crow today before you insist three times that you do not know me.” 35 And he said to them, “When I sent you out without purses and without bags and shoes, what did you lack?” They said to him, “Nothing.” 36 He said to them, “From now on, he who has a purse should take [it] and likewise also a bag. And he who does not have a sword should sell his garment and buy a sword for himself. 37 For I say to you, this also that was written must be fulfilled in me: I will be numbered with the unjust, for all [things] that concern me will be fulfilled.” 38 And they said to him, “Our Lord, behold, here are two swords.” He said to them, “They are sufficient.” 39 And he left and traveled (as he was accustomed) to the Mount of Olives and his disciples also followed him. 40 And when he arrived at the place, he said to them, “Pray, so that you should not enter into temptation.” 41 And he went away from them about [the distance] one throws a stone and he knelt and was praying. 42 And he said, “Father, if you want, let this cup pass by me. Nevertheless, not my will, but yours be done.” 43 And an angel from heaven appeared to him to strengthen him. 44 And being in fear, he prayed earnestly and his sweat was as drops of blood and he fell down on the ground. 45 And he rose up from his prayer and came to his disciples and found them asleep from sorrow. 46 And he said to them, “Why are you sleeping? Rise up [and] pray, so that you should not enter into temptation.” 47 And while he was speaking, behold, a crowd with him who was called Yehudah, one of the twelve, came before them. And he came near to Yeshue and kissed him, for he had given this sign to them, “Whomever I kiss is him.” 48 Yeshue said to him, “Yehudah, do you betray the Son of Man with a kiss?” 49 And when those who were with him saw what happened, they said to him, “Our Lord, should we strike them with swords?” 50 And one of them struck the servant of the chief priests and took off his right ear. 51 And Yeshue answered and said, “This is enough.” And he touched the ear of the one who was wounded and healed him. 52 And Yeshue said to those who had come against him, the chief priests and the elders and the captains of the temple, “Do you come out against me as against a robber with swords and with clubs to arrest me? 53 Every day I was with you in the temple and you did not lay hands on me. But this is your hour and the power of darkness.” 54 And they arrested [him and] brought him to the house of the high priest and Shimon followed him from a distance. 55 And they kindled a fire in the middle of the enclosure and they were sitting around it and Shimon also was sitting among them. 56 And a certain young woman saw him while he was sitting by the fire and she looked at him and said, “This [man] was also with him.” 57 And he denied [it] and said, “Woman, I do not know him.” 58 And after a little while another saw him and said to him, “You also are of them,” but Kipha said, “I am not.” 59 And Page 88 of 276

after one hour, another argued and said, “Truly this [man] also was with him, for he is also a Galilaya.” 60 Kipha said, “Man, I do not know what you are talking about.” And immediately while he was speaking, the rooster crowed. 61 And Yeshue turned and looked at Kipha, and Shimon remembered the word of our Lord that he had spoken to him, “Before the rooster will crow, you will deny me three times.” 62 And Shimon went outside [and] cried bitterly. 63 And the men who held Yeshue captive were mocking him and were covering him 64 and were striking him on his face and saying, “Prophesy who struck you.” 65 And many other [things] they were reviling and saying against him. 66 And when [day] dawned, the elders and chief priests and Saphrey were gathered together and they took him to their council. 67 And they said to him, “If you are Meshikha, tell us.” He said to them, “If I tell you, you will not believe me. 68 And if I ask you, you will not restore or will you release me. 69 From now on, the Son of Man will be seated at the right [hand] of the power of Alaha.” 70 And all of them were saying, “Are you therefore the Son of Alaha?” Yeshue said to them, “You say that I am.” 71 They said, “Why do we need more witnesses? For we have heard [it] from his mouth.”

LUKE CHAPTER 23
And the whole company of them rose up and brought him to Pilate. 2 And they began to accuse him and say, “We have found that this [man] is deceiving our nation and he denies that the poll tax should be given to Caesar. And he says about himself that he is a king, Meshikha.” 3 And Pilate asked him and said to him, “Are you the king of the Yehudaye?” He said to him, “You have said [it].” 4 And Pilate said to the chief priests and to the crowd, “I do not find any cause against this man.” 5 And they were shouting and saying, “He incites our nation, teaching in all of Yehuda. And he began from Galila up to here.” 6 And Pilate, when he heard the name of Galila, asked if the man was a Galilaya. 7 And when he knew that he was under the authority of Herod, he sent him to Herod, because he was in Urishlem in those days. 8 And Herod, when he saw Yeshue, was very glad, for he had wanted to see him for a long time because he had heard many [things] about him, and he thought that he might see some sign from him. 9 And he asked him many questions, but Yeshue did not give him any answer.10 And the chief priests and Saphrey rose up and were vehemently accusing him. 11 And Herod and his soldiers treated him with contempt and when he had mocked [him], he clothed him with garments of purple and sent him to Pilate. 12 And in that day Pilate and Herod became friends with one another, for there had been a conflict between them from the start. 13 And Pilate called the chief priests and the rulers of the people 14 and he said to them, “You have brought me this man as a rebel against of your nation and behold, I have examined him before your eyes and I have not found any fault in this man of all you have accused him. 15 Not even Herod [found anything], for I sent him to him and behold, nothing that is worthy of death has been done by him. 16 I will therefore punish him and let him go.” 17 For it was a custom that he would release one [prisoner] to them at the feast. 18 And the whole crowd cried out and said, “Take this [man] away and release Bar-Aba to us,” 19 him who was thrown into prison because of insurrection and murder that had happened in the city. 20 And again Pilate spoke to them, wanting to release Yeshue. 21 But they cried out and said, “Crucify him, crucify him.” 22 And the third time he said to them, “For what evil has this [man] done? I have not found any cause that is worthy of death in him. Therefore, I will punish him and let him go.” 23 But they were insisting with a loud voice and asking him to crucify him. And their Page 89 of 276
1

voice and [that] of the chief priests prevailed. 24 And Pilate commanded that their request be done. 25 And he released to them him who because of insurrection and murder was thrown into prison, whom they had requested, but he delivered Yeshue to their will. 26 And as they were leading him, they took hold of Shimon, a Cyrenian, who was coming from the country, and set the cross on him to carry [it] after Yeshue. 27 And a large group of people were following him and women who were lamenting and mourning for him. 28 And Yeshue turned to them and said, “Daughters of Urishlem, do not weep for me, but weep for yourselves and for your sons. 29 For behold, the days are coming in which they will say, “Blessed are the barren and the wombs that have not given birth and the breasts that have not nursed.” 30 Then you will begin to say to the mountains, “Fall on us,” and to the hills, “Cover us.” 31 For if they do these [things] in a green tree, what will happen in the dry?” 32 And two others, evil-doers, were coming with him to be killed. 33 And when they had come to a certain place that was called “The Skull,” they crucified him there, and those evil-doers, one on his right and one on his left. 34 And Yeshue said, “Father, forgive them, for they do not know what they are doing.” And they divided his garments and cast a lot for them. 35 And the people were standing and observing and the rulers also were mocking him and saying, “He saved others. Let him save himself if he is Meshikha, the chosen of Alaha.” 36 And the soldiers were also mocking him, while drawing near to him and offering him vinegar. 37 And they were saying to him, “If you are the king of the Yehudaye, save yourself.” 38 And there was also an inscription that was written over him in Greek and Latin and Evraith: “This is the king of the Yehudaye.” 39 And one of those evil-doers who was crucified with him was blaspheming against him and said, “If you are Meshikha, rescue yourself and rescue us also.” 40 And his companion rebuked him and said to him, “Are you not afraid even of Alaha, because indeed you are in the same judgment? 41 And we justly, for as we deserve and as we have done we have been repaid, but nothing that is hateful has been done by this [man].” 42 And he said to Yeshue, “Remember me, my Lord, when you come in your kingdom.” 43 Yeshue said to him, “Truly I say to you, today you will be with me in paradise.” 44 Now it was about the sixth hour and darkness was on all the land until the ninth hour. 45 And the sun was dark and the veil of the temple was torn from the middle of it. 46 And Yeshue cried out with a loud voice and said, “My Father, into your hands I place my spirit.” He said this and died. 47 And when the centurion saw what had happened, he praised Alaha and said, “Truly this man was just.” 48 And all the crowds, who were gathered for this sight, when they saw what had happened, returned, beating their breast[s]. 49 And all the acquaintances of Yeshue were standing at a distance, and the women, who had come with him from Galila, and they saw these [things]. 50 And a certain man, whose name [was] Yauseph, a counselor from Ramtha, a city of Yehuda, was a good and just man. 51 This [man] did not agree with their will and with their deed and was waiting for the kingdom of Alaha. 52 This [man] came near to Pilate and asked for the body of Yeshue. 53 And he took it down and wrapped it in a sheet of linen and placed it in a hewn tomb in which no man yet had been placed. 54 And it was the preparation day and the Shabtha was dawning. 55 And the women who had come with him from Galila were near and they saw the grave and how his body had been placed. 56 And they returned [and] prepared spices and ointments and rested on the Shabtha as was commanded.

LUKE CHAPTER 24

Page 90 of 276

Now on the first [day] of the week, at dawn while [it was] dark, they came to the tomb and brought the spices they had prepared, and there were with them other women. 2 And they found the stone that was rolled from the tomb. 3 And they entered, yet did not find the body of Yeshue. 4 And it happened that while they were astonished about this, behold, two men stood above them and their clothing was shining. 5 And they were in fear and bowed their faces to the ground. And they said to them, “Why do you seek the living with the dead? 6 He is not here. He has risen! Remember what he spoke to you while he was in Galila 7 and he said that the Son of Man will be delivered into the hands of men [who are] sinners and would be crucified, and after three days would rise?” 8 And they remembered his words. 9 And they returned from the grave and told all these [things] to the eleven and to the rest.10 Now there was Maryam Magdelaita and Yukhanan and Maryam the mother of Yaquv and the rest who were with them, who had told the apostles. 11 And these words seemed crazy in their eyes and they did not believe them. 12 And Shimon stood up and ran to the grave and looked in [and] saw the linen clothes placed alone, and went away wondering in himself about what had happened. 13 And behold, two of them on the same day went to a village by the name of Emmaus, and it was sixty furlongs distant from Urishlem. 14 And they were speaking with each other about all those [things] that had happened. 15 And while they were speaking and questioning one another, Yeshue came and approached them and was walking with them. 16 And their eyes were closed so that they did not recognize him. 17 And he said to them, “What are these words that you are speaking with each other while you walk and are sad?” 18 One of them whose name was Cleopas answered and said to him, “Are you indeed only a stranger from Urishlem that you do not know what has happened in it in these days?” 19 He said to them, “What [things]?” They said to him, “About Yeshue who was from Natsrath, a man who was a prophet and was mighty in word and in deeds before Alaha and before all the people. 20 And the chief priests and elders delivered him to the judgment of death and they crucified him. 21 But we had hoped that he was going to deliver Israyel and behold, three days [have passed] since all these [things] happened. 22 But also [some of] our women astonished us, for they went early to the tomb 23 and when they did not find his body, they came [and] told us, “We saw angels there and they said about him that he is alive.” 24 And also, [some of] our men went to the tomb and found the same as what the women had said, but they did not see him.” 25 Then Yeshue said to them, “Oh fools and dull of heart to believe in all those [things] that the prophets spoke! 26 Were not for these [things] Meshikha intended to endure and to enter into his glory?” 27 And he began from Mushe and from all the prophets and expounded to them about himself from all the scriptures. 28 And they came near the village to which they were going and he caused them to think that he was going to a more distant place. 29 And they constrained him and said to him, “Remain with us because the day now is at an end [and it is starting] to become dark.” And he entered to continue with them. 30 And it happened that while he sat to eat with them, he took bread and blessed [it] and broke [it] and gave [it] to them. 31 And immediately their eyes were opened and they knew him. And he was taken from them. 32 And they said one to another, “Were not our heart[s] heavy within us while he talked with us along the road and expounded to us the scriptures?” 33 And they rose up immediately and returned to Urishlem. And they found the eleven, who were gathered together and those who were with them, 34 saying, “Truly our Lord has risen and appeared to Shimon.” 35 And those also related these [things] that had happened on the road and how he was made known to them while breaking bread. 36 And while they were saying these [things], Yeshue stood among them and said to them, “Peace [be] with you. It is I. Do not be afraid.” 37 And they were astonished and were in fear, for they supposed that they had seen a spirit. 38 And Yeshue said to them, “Why are you troubled and Page 91 of 276

1

why do thoughts well up in your hearts? 39 Look at my hands and my feet, for it is I. Touch me and know that a spirit has no flesh and bones as you see that I have.” 40 And while he said these [things], he showed them his hands and his feet. 41 And while they did still not believe from their joy and were astonished, he said to them, “Do you have anything here to eat?” 42 And they gave him a portion of fish that was broiled and of a comb of honey. 43 And he took [and] ate [it] before them. 44 And he said to them, “These are the words that I spoke to you while I was with you, that it was necessary that everything be fulfilled that was written in the Namusa of Mushe and in the prophets and in the Psalms about me.” 45 Then he opened their minds to understand the scriptures. 46 And he said to them, “So it is written and so it was right that Meshikha should suffer and rise from the dead after three days 47 and that repentance will be preached through his name for the forgiveness of sins in all the nations and [that] the beginning will be from Urishlem. 48 And you are a witness of these [things] 49 and I will send to you the promise of my Father. But remain in the city, Urishlem, until you be clothed with power from on high.” 50 And he took them out up to Beth-Naiya and raised his hands and blessed them. 51 And it happened that while he blessed them, he was separated from them and taken up to heaven. 52 And they worshipped him and returned to Urishlem with great joy. 53 And they were always in the temple, praising and blessing Alaha. Amen.

JOHN
CHAPTER 1
In the beginning was the word and that word was with Alaha and Alaha was the word. 2 This [word] was in the beginning with Alaha. 3 Everything existed by his hand and without him not even one [thing] existed [of] that which existed. 4 In him was life and the life was the light of men. 5 And that light brought light in the darkness and the darkness did not overtake it. 6 There was a man who was sent from Alaha whose name [was] Yukhanan. 7 This [man] came for a witness to bear witness concerning the light that everyone would believe by his hand. 8 He was not the light, but rather [he came] to bear witness concerning the light. 9 For the light of truth was that which brings light to everyone who comes into the world.10 He was in the world and the world was by his hand and the world did not know him. 11 He came to his own and his own did not receive him. 12 But those who did receive him, to those who believed in his name, he gave authority to be sons of Alaha, 13 those who were birthed, not by blood, nor by the will of flesh, nor by the will of man, but rather by Alaha. 14 And the word became flesh and lived among us and we saw his glory, the glory as of the unique one who was from the Father, who is full of grace and truthfulness. 15 Yukhanan witnessed about him and cried out and said, “This is he, who I said would follow me, yet be before me, because he was earlier than me. 16 And from his fullness we all have received and grace on account of grace, 17 because the Namusa was given by way of Mushe, but truth and grace was by way of Yeshue-Meshikha. 18 No man has ever seen Alaha. The unique one [of] Alaha, who was in the bosom of his Father, has declared [him]. 19 And this is the witness of Yukhanan, when the Yehudaye from Urishlem sent to him priests and Lewaye to ask him, “Who are you?” 20 And he confessed and did not deny, but confessed, “I am not Meshikha.” 21 And they asked him again, “Who then? Are you Eliya?” And he said, “I am not.” “Are you a prophet?” And he said, “No.” 22 And they said to him, “Then who are you that we may give an answer to those who sent us? What do you say about yourself?” 23 He said, “I am the voice that cries in the wilderness, make smooth the way of Marya, as Eshaya the prophet said.” 24 And they who were sent were from the Perishye. 25 And they asked him and said to him, “Why then do you immerse, if you are neither Meshikha nor Eliya nor a prophet?” 26 Yukhanan answered and said to them, “I immerse with water, but among you stands him whom you do not know. 27 This is he who will follow me, yet was before me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen.” 28 These [things] happened in Beth-Naiya at the crossing of the Yurdinan where Yukhanan was baptizing. 29 And on the next day, Yukhanan saw Yeshue, who was coming towards him and said, “Behold, the Lamb of Alaha who takes away the sin of the world. 30 This is he about whom I said, “A man will follow me, yet he was before me, because he was earlier than me.” 31 And I did not know him, except that he would be made known to Israyel. Because of this, I have come to immerse with water.” 32 And Yukhanan testified and said, “I saw the Rukha coming down from heaven as a dove and it remained on him. 33 And I did not know him, but he who sent me to immerse with water said to me, “Him on whom you see the Rukha come down and remain, this [one] will immerse with the Rukha d’Qudsha.” 34 And I have seen and testify that this is the Son of Alaha.” 35 And on another day Yukhanan was standing, and two of his disciples, 36 and he looked at Yeshue as he was walking and said, “Behold, the Lamb of Alaha.” 37 And two of his disciples heard [him] when he spoke and they followed Yeshue. 38 And Page 93 of 276
1

Yeshue turned and saw them who were following and said to them, “What do you want?” They said to him, “Our Master, where do you live?” 39 He said to them, “Come and you will see.” And they came and saw where he was and they were with him that day and it was about the tenth hour. 40 And one of those who had heard from Yukhanan and followed Yeshue was Andrew, the brother of Shimon. 41 This [one] first saw Shimon his brother and said to him, “I have found Meshikha.” 42 And he brought him to Yeshue. And Yeshue looked at him and said, “You are Shimon, the Bar-Yauna. You will be called Kipha.” 43 And on another day, Yeshue wanted to go to Galila. And he found Philip and said to him, “Follow me.” 44 Now Philip was from Beth-Sayada, from the city of Andrew and of Shimon. 45 And Philip found Nathanayil and said to him, “We have found him about whom Mushe wrote in the Namusa and the prophets, that he is Yeshue the son of Yauseph from Natsrath.” 46 Nathanayil said to him, “Is it possible for anything good to be from Natsrath?” Philip said to him, “Come and you will see.” 47 And Yeshue saw Nathanayil coming towards him and said about him, “Behold, truly a son of Israyel in whom there is no deceit.” 48 Nathanayil said to him, “From where do you know me?” Yeshue said to him, “Before Philip called you, while you were under the fig tree, I saw you.” 49 Nathanayil answered and said to him, “My Master, you are the Son of Alaha. You are the King of Israyel.” 50 Yeshue said to him, “Because I told you that I saw you under the fig tree, do you believe? For you will see greater [things] than these.” 51 He said to him, “Truly, truly I say to you, from now on you will see heaven opening and the angels of Alaha ascending and descending to the Son of Man.”

JOHN CHAPTER 2
And on the third day there was a wedding feast in Qatne, a city of Galila, and the mother of Yeshue was there. 2 And Yeshue and his disciples were also invited to the wedding feast. 3 And the wine was running out and his mother said to Yeshue, “They have no wine.” 4 Yeshue said to her, “What do you want from me, woman? My hour has not yet come.” 5 His mother said to the servants, “Whatever he tells you, do.” 6 And there were there six water pots of stone, which were placed for the purification of the Yehudaye that each held two or three liquid measures. 7 Yeshue said to them, “Fill the water pots [with] water.” And they filled them up to the top. 8 He said to them, “Draw [the wine] now and take [it] to the chief of the feast.” And they took [it]. 9 And when the chief of the feast had tasted that water that had become wine and did not know from where it came (but the servants knew, because they had filled the water) the chief of the feast called the bridegroom10 and said to him, “Everyone first brings good wine and when they are drunk, then that which is inferior. But you have kept the good wine until now.” 11 This was the first sign that Yeshue did in Qatne of Galila. And he made known his glory and his disciples believed in him. 12 After this, he went down to Kepharnakhum, he and his mother and his brothers and his disciples and they stayed there a few days. 13 And the Petskha of the Yehudaye was near and Yeshue went up to Urishlem. 14 And he found in the temple those who were selling oxen and sheep and doves and moneychangers who were sitting. 15 And he made himself a whip from a rope and drove out all of them from the temple, even the sheep and oxen and the moneychangers. And he poured out their money and turned over their tables. 16 And to those who were selling doves, he said, “Take these away [from] here and do not make the house of my Father a house of merchandise.” 17 And his disciples remembered that it was written: The Page 94 of 276

zeal of your house has consumed me. 18 Now the Yehudaye answered and said to him, “What sign do you show us, because you do these [things]?” 19 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Tear down this temple and after three days, I will raise it.” 20 The Yehudaye said to him, “This temple was being built for forty-six years and after three days you will raise it?” 21 But he was speaking about the temple of his body. 22 And when he rose from the dead, his disciples remembered that he had said this and they believed the scriptures and the word that Yeshue had said. 23 Now while Yeshue was in Urishlem at the Petskha, during the feast many believed in him when they saw the signs that he did. 24 But Yeshue did not entrust himself to them, because he knew all men 25 and he did not need a man to testify to him about anyone, for he knew what was in man.

JOHN CHAPTER 3
Now there was a certain man there from the Perishye. His name was Nicodemus, a ruler of the Yehudaye. 2 This [man] came to Yeshue at night and said to him, “My Master, we know that you were sent from Alaha [as] a teacher, for no man is able to do these signs that you do, but he with whom Alaha [is].” 3 Yeshue answered and said to him, “Truly, truly I say to you, if a man is not born again, he is not able to see the kingdom of Alaha.” 4 Nicodemus said to him, “How is it possible for an old man to be born? Is it possible to enter the womb of his mother again a second time and to be born?” 5 Yeshue answered and said to him, “Truly, truly I say to you, if a man is not born from water and Rukha, he is not able to enter into the kingdom of Alaha. 6 What is born from the flesh is flesh and what is born from the Rukha is spirit. 7 Do not marvel that I say to you that it is necessary for you to be born again. 8 The wind will blow where it wants and you hear its sound, but you do not know [from] where it comes and to where it goes. So is everyone who is born from the Rukha.” 9 Nicodemus answered and said to him, “How can these [things] be?”10 Yeshue answered and said to him, “You are a teacher of Israyel and you do not know these [things]? 11 Truly, truly I say to you, what we know, we speak, and what we see, we witness [to], and you do not receive our witness. 12 If I have spoken to you about [things] on the earth and you do not believe, how will you believe me if I speak to you about [things] in heaven? 13 And no man has ascended into heaven, but he who descended from heaven, the Son of Man who is in heaven. 14 And as Mushe raised up the serpent in the wilderness, so the Son of Man is going to be raised up, 15 so that everyone who believes in him will not be destroyed, but will have eternal life. 16 For Alaha so loved the world, even that he would give his unique Son, that whoever will believe in him will not be destroyed, but will have eternal life, 17 for Alaha did not send his Son into the world to condemn the world, but to give life to the world by his hand. 18 He who believes in him is not judged and he who does not believe is judged already, because he does not believe in the name of the unique Son of Alaha. 19 Now this is the judgment, because the light has come to the world and men loved darkness more than the light, for their works are evil. 20 For everyone who does hateful [things] hates the light and does not come to the light, so that his works will not be reproved. 21 But he who does truth[ful things] comes to the light, so that his works may be known that they are done in Alaha.” 22 After these [things] Yeshue and his disciples went to the land of Yehuda and he was living with them there and baptizing. 23 Now Yukhanan was also baptizing at Ain-Yaun, which was beside Shalim, because there was plenty of water there and they were coming and being immersed, 24 for Yukhanan had not yet been cast Page 95 of 276
1

into prison. 25 Now there was a question with a certain Yehudaya to one of the disciples of Yukhanan about purification. 26 And they came to Yukhanan and said to him, “Our Master, he who was with you at the crossing of the Yurdinan about whom you witnessed, behold, he is also baptizing and many are coming to him.” 27 Yukhanan answered and said to them, “No man is able to receive anything of his own desire, except it be given to him from heaven. 28 You are my witnesses that I said that I am not Meshikha, but I am a messenger who is before him. 29 He who has the bride is the bridegroom, but the friend of the bridegroom who stands and listens for him rejoices [with] a great joy, because of the voice of the bridegroom. Therefore, this my joy, behold, is full. 30 It is necessary for him to increase and for me to decrease. 31 For he who has come from above is above all and he who is from the earth is from the earth and speaks from the earth. He who has come from heaven is above all. 32 And what he has seen and heard he witnesses, yet no man receives his witness. 33 But he who receives his witness confirms that Alaha is true. 34 For he whom Alaha sent speaks the words of Alaha, for Alaha did not give the Rukha with measure. 35 The Father loves the Son and has given everything into his hands. 36 He who believes in the Son has eternal life and he who does not obey the Son will not see life. On the contrary, the wrath of Alaha will continue against him.”

JOHN CHAPTER 4
Now Yeshue knew that the Perishye had heard that he made many disciples and was baptizing more than Yukhanan, 2 although Yeshue was not baptizing, but rather his disciples [were]. 3 And he left Yehuda and went again to Galila 4 and he was planning to pass through the Shamraye. 5 And he came to a city of the Shamraye that was called Shakar, by the edge of the field that Yaquv had given to Yauseph, his son. 6 And there was there a well of water that [had belonged to] Yaquv. And Yeshue was tired from the toil of the journey and was sitting by the well and it was the sixth hour. 7 And a woman from Shamrin came to draw water. And Yeshue said to her, “Give me water to drink,” 8 for his disciples had entered the city to buy food for them. 9 That Shamraya woman said to him, “How is it [since] you are a Yehudaya, yet you ask to drink of me, who am a Shamraya woman? For the Yehudaye do not deal with the Shamraye.”10 Yeshue answered and said to her, “If you were aware of the gift of Alaha and who this is who said to you, “Give me to drink,” you would ask him and he would give you living water.” 11 That woman said to him, “My Lord, you have no water pot and the well is deep. Where [is] your living water? 12 Are you greater than our father Yaquv, who gave us this well and from which he and his sons and his flocks drank?” 13 Yeshue answered and said to her, “Everyone who drinks from this water will thirst again, 14 but everyone who drinks from the water that I give him will not thirst forever. But that water that I give him will be in him a spring of water that will bubble up to eternal life.” 15 That woman said to him, “My Lord, give to me from this water, so that I will not thirst again nor have to come [and] draw [water] from here.” 16 Yeshue said to her, “Go, call your husband and come here.” 17 She said to him, “I have no husband.” Yeshue said to her, “You have spoken well, “I have no husband,” 18 for you have had five husbands and this [one] that you have now is not your husband. This you have said [is] true.” 19 That woman said to him, “My Lord, I perceive that you are a prophet. 20 Our fathers worshipped on this mountain, yet you say that in Urishlem is the place that it is proper to worship.” 21 Yeshue said to her, “Woman, believe me that the hour comes, when not on this mountain, nor even in Urishlem will they Page 96 of 276
1

worship the Father. 22 You worship that which you do not know, but we worship what we know, because life is from the Yehudaye. 23 But the hour comes and now is, when the true worshipper will worship the Father by the Rukha and with the truth, for the Father also seeks worshippers who are like these. 24 For Alaha is a Rukha and those who worship him must worship by the Rukha and with truth.” 25 That woman said to him, “I know that Meshikha will come and when he comes, he will teach us everything.” 26 Yeshue said to her, “I who speak with you am [he].” 27 And while he spoke, his disciples came and were amazed that he spoke with a woman, but no one said, “What do you ask?” or, “Why do you speak with her?” 28 And the woman left her water pitcher and went to the city and told the men, 29 “Come, see the man who told me everything that I have done. Is he Meshikha?” 30 And the men went out of the city and they were coming to him. 31 And in the middle of these [things] his disciples were begging him and saying to him, “Our Master, eat.” 32 But he said to them, “I have food to eat that you do not know.” 33 The disciples spoke among themselves, “Has someone brought him something to eat?” 34 Yeshue said to them, “My food is to do the will of him who sent me and [that] I complete his work. 35 Do you not say that after four months comes the harvest? Behold, I say to you, “Lift up your eyes and see the fields that are white and have arrived at the harvest already.” 36 And he who reaps receives a wage and gathers fruit for eternal life and the sower and the reaper will rejoice together. 37 For in this is a word of truth: Someone sows and another reaps. 38 I have sent you to reap in what you did not labor, for others labored and you have entered into their toil.” 39 And many Shamraye from that city believed in him, because of the word of that woman who had testified, “He told me everything that I have done.” 40 And when those Shamraye came to him, they begged him to stay with them and he stayed with them [for] two days. 41 And many believed in him, because of his word. 42 And they were saying to that woman, “From now on, we do not believe in him [only] because of your word, for we have heard and know that this is truly Meshikha, the Savior of the world.” 43 And after two days, Yeshue went away from there and traveled to Galila, 44 for Yeshue had testified that a prophet is not honored in his [own] city. 45 And when he came to Galila, the Galilaye received him who had seen all the signs that he had done in Urishlem during the feast, for they also had gone to the feast. 46 And Yeshue came again to Qatne of Galila, where he had made the water wine. And in Kepharnakhum there was a servant of a certain king whose son was sick. 47 This [man] heard that Yeshue had come from Yehuda to Galila, and he went to him and was begging him to come down and to heal his son, for he was close to dying. 48 Yeshue said to him, “If you do not see signs and wonders, you do not believe.” 49 That servant of the king said to him, “My Lord, come down before the boy dies.” 50 Yeshue said to him, “Go! Your son is alive.” And that man believed in the word that Yeshue spoke to him and he went away. 51 And while he was going down, his servants met him and brought him good news and said to him, “Your son lives.” 52 And he asked them at what time he was healed. They said to him, “Yesterday, in the seventh hour the fever left him.” 53 And his father knew that [it was] at that moment in which Yeshue had said to him, “Your son lives.” And he and his whole house believed. 54 Furthermore, this [was] the second sign Yeshue did after he came from Yehuda to Galila.

JOHN CHAPTER 5
1

After these [things] was the feast of the Yehudaye and Yeshue went up to Urishlem. 2 Page 97 of 276

Now there was in Urishlem there a certain pool of baptizing, which is called in Evraith, Beth-Khesda, and it had five porches in it. 3 And many people were lying in these [porches] who were sick and blind and lame and crippled and they were waiting for the movement of the water, 4 for an angel came down at various times to the pool and moved the water. And whoever would go down first after the movement of the water was healed [of] every pain that he had. 5 Now there was there a certain man who had had an infirmity [for] thirty-eight years. 6 Yeshue saw this [man] who was lying [there] and knew that he had been [infirm] a long time. And he said to him, “Do you want to be healed?” 7 That sick man answered and said, “Yes, my Lord, but I have no one to place me in the pool when the water is moved. But before I go [down], another comes down before me.” 8 Yeshue said to him, “Rise, pick up your bed and walk.” 9 And immediately that man was healed and he rose up, picked up his bed and walked. And that same day was the Shabtha.10 And the Yehudaye said to him who was healed, “It is the Shabtha. It is not lawful for you to carry your bed.” 11 But he answered and said to them, “He who made me whole said to me, “Pick up your bed and walk.”“ 12 And they asked him, “Who is this man who told you to pick up your bed and walk?” 13 And he who was healed did not know who he was, for Yeshue had withdrawn from the large crowd that was in that place. 14 After a time, Yeshue found him in the temple and said to him, “Behold, you are whole. Do not sin again, lest something that is worse than before should happen to you.” 15 And that man went and told the Yehudaye that it was Yeshue who had healed him. 16 And because of this, the Yehudaye were persecuting Yeshue and seeking to kill him, because he had done these [things] on the Shabtha. 17 But Yeshue said to them, “My Father works until now. I also work.” 18 And because of this, the Yehudaye were seeking to kill him even more, not only because he had broken the Shabtha, but also because he was saying about Alaha that he was his Father and was equating himself with Alaha. 19 Now Yeshue answered and said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, the Son is not able to do anything by his own will, but what he sees the Father [do], that he does. For those [things] that the Father does, these also the Son does likewise. 20 For the Father loves his Son and everything that he does, he shows him and he will show him greater than these works, so that you will marvel. 21 For as the Father raises the dead and makes them alive, so also the Son will make alive those whom he wants. 22 For the Father does not judge anyone, but has given all judgment to the Son, 23 so that everyone should honor the Son as he honors the Father. He who does not honor the Son does not honor the Father who sent him. 24 Truly, truly I say to you, whoever hears my word and believes on him who sent me has eternal life and does not come to judgment, but has removed himself from death to life. 25 Truly, truly I say to you, the hour comes, even now is, when the dead will hear the voice of the Son of Alaha and those who hear [it] will live. 26 For as the Father has life in himself, so he also gave to the Son to have life in himself 27 and he gave him authority to also execute judgment. 28 Now because he is the Son of Man, do not marvel at this, because the hour will come when all those who are in the graves will hear his voice. 29 And those who have done good [things] will go out to the resurrection of life and those who have done evil [things] to the resurrection of judgment. 30 I cannot do anything of my own will, but as I hear, I judge, and my judgment is upright, for I do not seek my will, but the will of him who sent me. 31 If I testify about myself, my testimony is not true. 32 There is another who bears testimony about me and I know that his testimony that he testifies about me is true. 33 You sent to Yukhanan and he testified concerning the truth. 34 And I did not receive the testimony from man, but I say these [things] that you may live. 35 That [man] was a lamp that shone and brought light and you were willing to boast for a time in his light. 36 But I have a testimony that is greater than [that] of Yukhanan, for the works that my Father gave to me to finish, those works that I do, testify Page 98 of 276

concerning me that the Father sent me. 37 And the Father who sent me testifies about me. You have not ever heard his voice, nor have you seen his appearance. 38 And his word does not remain in you, because you do not believe in him whom he sent. 39 Search the scriptures, because in them you think that you have eternal life and they testify about me. 40 And you are not desiring to come to me that you might have eternal life. 41 I do not receive praise from men, 42 but I know you, that the love of Alaha is not in you. 43 I have come in the name of my Father and you have not received me. Yet if another would come in his own name, you would receive him. 44 How are you able to believe, who receive praise from one another, yet you do not seek the praise that is from Alaha alone? 45 Do you think that I will accuse you before the Father? There is one who accuses you, Mushe, in whom you trust, 46 for if you believe in Mushe, you would also believe in me, for Mushe wrote about me. 47 And if you do not believe his writings, how will you believe my words?”

JOHN CHAPTER 6
After these [things], Yeshue went to the other shore of the Sea of Galila, which is Tiberias. 2 And large crowds followed him, because they had seen the signs that he did with the sick. 3 And Yeshue went up to a mountain and was sitting there with his disciples. 4 And the feast of the Petskha of the Yehudaye was near. 5 And Yeshue raised his eyes and saw a large crowd that came towards him. And he said to Philip, “Where will we buy bread that these may eat?” 6 And he said this, testing him, for he knew what he was going to do. 7 Philip said to him, “Two hundred denarii [of] bread is not sufficient for them, [even] when each of them would [only] take a little.” 8 Andrew, the brother of Shimon Kipha, one of his disciples, said to him, 9 “There is a certain boy here who has five loaves of barley and two fish with him, but what are these for all those [people]?”10 Yeshue said to them, “Make all the men to sit to eat.” Now there was much grass in that place and the men sat to eat, five thousand in number. 11 And Yeshue took the bread and blessed [it] and distributed [it] to those who sat to eat, and so also from the fish, as much as they wanted. 12 And when they were satisfied, he said to his disciples, “Gather the fragments that remain, so that nothing will be lost.” 13 And they gathered [them] and filled twelve baskets [with] those fragments that remained to them who had eaten from the five loaves of barley. 14 Now those men who had seen the sign that Yeshue had done were saying, “Truly this is the prophet who has come into the world.” 15 But Yeshue knew that they were going to come [and] grab him and to make him a king and he went out to a mountain alone. 16 And when evening came, his disciples went down to the sea. 17 And they took a ship and were going to the other shore, to Kepharnakhum. And it was dark and Yeshue had not come to them. 18 And the sea was lifted up against them, because a fierce wind was blowing. 19 And they went onward about twenty-five or thirty furlongs and they saw Yeshue walking on the lake. And as he came near to their ship, they were afraid. 20 And Yeshue said to them, “It is I. Do not be afraid.” 21 And they wanted to receive him into the ship and immediately, that ship was at the land [to] which they were going. 22 And on the next day that crowd that remained on the other side of the sea saw that there was no other ship there, except that one which the disciples had boarded and that Yeshue had not entered the ship with his disciples. 23 But other boats had come from Tiberias to the shore of the place in which they ate bread after Yeshue had blessed [it], 24 and when that crowd saw that neither Yeshue was there nor his disciples, they boarded these boats and came to Kepharnakhum and Page 99 of 276
1

were seeking Yeshue. 25 And when they found him on the other shore of the sea, they said to him, “Our Master, when did you come here?” 26 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, you are seeking me, not because you saw the miracles, but because you ate bread and were satisfied. 27 Do not labor for food that is destroyed, but [for] food that lasts for life forever, that which the Son of Man will give to you, for this the Father, Alaha, has confirmed.” 28 They said to him, “What should we do to labor for the works of Alaha?” 29 Yeshue answered and said to them, “This is the work of Alaha, that you should believe in him whom he sent.” 30 They said to him, “What sign have you done that we may see and believe in you? What have you performed? 31 Our fathers ate manna in the wilderness, as it is written: He gave them bread from heaven to eat.” 32 Yeshue said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, Mushe did not give you bread from heaven, but my Father gave you the truthful bread from heaven. 33 For the bread of Alaha is he who has come down from heaven and gives life to the world.” 34 They said to him, “Our Lord, give us this bread always.” 35 Yeshue said to them, “I am the bread of life. He who comes to me will not hunger and he who believes in me will not thirst forever. 36 But I said to you, “You have seen me, yet you do not believe.” 37 All whom my Father has given to me will come to me and whoever will come to me I will not throw out, 38 because I came down from heaven, not to do my will, but to do the will of him who sent me. 39 And this is the will of him who sent me, that I do not lose anyone [of] all whom he has given me, but I will raise him up in the last day. 40 For this is the will of my Father, that all who see the Son and believe in him will have eternal life and I will raise him up in the last day.” 41 And the Yehudaye were murmuring against him, because he said, “I am the bread that came down from heaven.” 42 And they were saying, “Is not this Yeshue the son of Yauseph, him whose father and mother we know? Yet how does this [man] say, “I came down from heaven?”“ 43 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Do not murmur to each other. 44 No one is able to come to me, unless the Father who sent me draws him and I will raise him up in the last day, 45 for it is written in the prophet: All of them will be taught of Alaha. Everyone who hears, therefore, from the Father and learns from him will come to me. 46 There is no one who will see the Father, but rather he who is from Alaha is that one [who] sees the Father. 47 Truly, truly I say to you, he who believes in me has eternal life. 48 I am the bread of life. 49 Your fathers ate manna in the wilderness and they died. 50 Now this is the bread that came down from heaven, that a man may eat of it and not die. 51 I am the living bread, who came down from heaven and if a man should eat of this bread, he will live forever. And the bread that I give is my body, which I give for the life of the world.” 52 And the Yehudaye were arguing with each other and saying, “How can this [man] give us his body to eat?” 53 And Yeshue said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, unless you eat the body of the Son of Man and drink his blood, you do not have life in yourselves. 54 And he who eats of my body and drinks of my blood has eternal life and I will raise him up in the last day. 55 For my body truly is food and my blood truly is drink. 56 He who eats my body and drinks my blood remains in me and I in him. 57 As the living Father has sent me and I live because of the Father, [so] he who eats me will also live because of me. 58 This is the bread that came down from heaven, not as your fathers ate manna and died. He who eats this bread will live forever.” 59 These [things] he said in the synagogue while teaching in Kepharnakhum. 60 And many of his disciples who heard [him] said, “This saying is hard. Who is able to hear it?” 61 Now Yeshue knew in himself that his disciples were murmuring about this [saying] and he said to them, “[Does] this offend you? 62 [What] if then you see the Son of Man ascending to the place where he was before? 63 It is the Rukha that makes alive. The body does not profit anything. The words that I speak with you are spirit and they are life. 64 But there are some of you who do not believe.” (For Yeshue knew previously who those were who did not Page 100 of 276

believe and who it was who would betray him.) 65 And he was saying to them, “Because of this, I told you that no one is able to come to me, unless it is given to him by my Father.” 66 Because of this saying, many of his disciples turned their back[s] and did not walk with him. 67 And Yeshue said to his twelve, “Do you also want to go?” 68 Shimon Kipha answered and said, “My Lord, to whom would we go? You have the words of eternal life. 69 And we believe and know that you are Meshikha, the Son of the living Alaha.” 70 Yeshue said to them, “Did not I choose you twelve? Yet one of you is an opponent.” 71 Now he was speaking about Yehudah, the son of Shimon sekariuta, for he was going to betray him, one of the twelve.

JOHN CHAPTER 7
After these [things], Yeshue was walking in Galila, for he did not want to walk in Yehuda, because the Yehudaye were seeking to kill him. 2 And the Feast of Tabernacles of the Yehudaye was near. 3 And his brothers said to Yeshue, “Leave here and go to Yehuda, so that your disciples may see the works that you are doing, 4 for there is no one who does anything secretly, yet desires that it be [known] openly. If you do these [things], show yourself to the world.” 5 For not even his brothers believed in Yeshue. 6 Yeshue said to them, “My time has not yet arrived, but your time has always been ready. 7 The world is not able to hate you, but it hates me, because I testify against it that its works are evil. 8 Go up to this feast. I will not go up to this feast now, because my time is still not finished.” 9 He said these [things] and he stayed in Galila.10 Now after his brothers had gone up to the feast, then he also went up, not openly, but secretly. 11 And the Yehudaye were seeking him at the feast and were saying, “Where is he?” 12 And there was much murmuring in the crowd because of him, for there were [those] who said, “He is good,” and others were saying, “Not so, but rather he deceives the people.” 13 But no one was speaking openly about him, because of fear of the Yehudaye. 14 Now when the days of the feast were half gone, Yeshue went up to the temple and was teaching. 15 And the Yehudaye were amazed and said, “How does this [man] know the writings, when he has not learned [them]?” 16 Yeshue answered and said, “My teaching is not mine, but his who sent me. 17 He who wants to do his will, will understand my teaching, if it is from Alaha or [if] I speak from my own will. 18 He who speaks from the will of his [own] mind seeks glory for himself. Now he who seeks the glory of him who sent him is true and has no wickedness in his heart. 19 Did not Mushe give you the Namusa? Yet not one of you keeps the Namusa. 20 Why do you seek to kill me?” The crowd answered and said, “You have a devil. Who wants to kill you?” 21 Yeshue answered and said to them, “I have done one work and all of you are amazed. 22 On account of this, Mushe gave you circumcision, not because it was from Mushe, but because it was from the forefathers, and on the Shabtha you circumcise a man. 23 If a man is circumcised on the day of the Shabtha [and] because of [this] the Namusa of Mushe is not broken, [why] are you murmuring against me, because I have healed the man on the day of the Shabtha? 24 Do not judge with respect of persons, but rather judge [with an] upright judgment.” 25 And some from Urishlem were saying, “Is this not him whom they seek to kill? 26 And behold, he speaks openly and they do not say anything to him. Do our elders know that this is truly Meshikha? 27 But we know from where he is. And Meshikha, when he comes, no man will know from where he is.” 28 And Yeshue lifted up his voice as he taught in the temple and said, “You both know me and you know from where I [am]. And I did not come by my own will, but he is true who sent me, whom you do not know. 29 But I Page 101 of 276

know him, because I [am] from his presence and he has sent me.” 30 And they wanted to arrest him, yet no one laid hands on him, because his hour had not yet come. 31 Now many from the crowd believed in him and said, “When Meshikha comes, will he do more than these miracles this [man] has done?” 32 And the Perishye heard the crowds who were saying these [things] about him and they and the chief priests sent guards to arrest him. 33 And Yeshue said, “Yet a little time I [am] with you, and I will go to him who sent me. 34 And you will seek me and you will not find me and where I am [going], you are not able to come.” 35 The Yehudaye said among themselves, “Where is this [man] about to go that we cannot find him? Is he about to go, perhaps, to the regions of the Gentiles and to teach the heathens? 36 What is this saying that he said, “You will seek me and you will not find me and where I am [going], you are not able to come?”“ 37 And on the high day, which is the last [day] of the feast, Yeshue was standing and he cried out and said, “If anyone is thirsty, he should come to me and drink. 38 Whoever believes in me, as the scriptures have said, rivers of living water will flow from his inner part.” 39 Now he said this about the Rukha that those who believed in him were about to receive, for the Rukha was not yet given, because Yeshue was not yet glorified. 40 And many from the crowds who heard his words were saying, “This is truly a prophet.” 41 Others were saying, “This is Meshikha.” Others were saying, “Does Meshikha come from Galila? 42 Does not the scripture say that Meshikha will come from the seed of Dawid and from Beth-Lekhem, the village of Dawid?” 43 And there was division in the crowd because of him. 44 And there were some of them who wanted to arrest him, but no one laid hands on him. 45 And those guards came to the chief priests and the Perishye and the priests said to them, “Why have you not brought him?” 46 The guards said to them, “Never has a man spoken so, as this man speaks.” 47 The Perishye said to them, “Are you also deceived? 48 Have any of the leaders or of the Perishye believed in him, 49 except only this cursed people, who do not know the Namusa?” 50 Nicodemus, one of them, who had come to Yeshue in the night, said to them, 51 “Does our Namusa condemn a man, unless it hears from him first and knows what he has done?” 52 They answered and said to him, “Are you also from Galila? Search and see that the prophet will not rise up from Galila.”2

JOHN CHAPTER 8
Now again Yeshue spoke to them and said, “I am the light of the world. He who follows me will not walk in darkness, but he will find for himself the light of life.” 13 The Perishye said to him, “You testify concerning yourself. Your testimony is not true.” 14 Yeshue answered and said to them, “Even if I testify concerning myself, my testimony is true, because I know from where I came and to where I am going. But you do not know from where I came or to where I am going. 15 You judge according to the flesh. I do not judge anyone. 16 Yet now if I do judge, my judgment is true, because I am not alone. But rather, I and my Father who sent me [judge]. 17 And now in your Namusa it is written that the testimony of two men is true. 18 I am [one] who testifies concerning myself and my Father who sent me testifies concerning me.” 19 They said to him, “Where is your father?” Yeshue answered and said to them, “You know neither me nor my Father. If you would know me, you would also know my Father.” 20 He spoke these words [in] the treasury while he taught in the temple. And no one arrested him, for his hour

had not yet come. 21 Again Yeshue said to them, “I will go and you will seek me and you will die in your sins. And where I am going, you are not able to come.” 22 The Yehudaye said, “Will he perhaps kill himself?” because he said, “Where I am going, you are not able to come.” 23 And he said to them, “You are from below and I am from above. You are from this world. I am not from this world. 24 I told you that you will die in your sins, for unless you believe that I am [he], you will die in your sins.” 25 The Yehudaye said, “Who are you?” Yeshue said to them, “Although I have [just] begun to speak to you, 26 I have much to say and to judge against you, but he who sent me is true and those [things] that I have heard from him, I speak in the world.” 27 And they did not know that he spoke to them about the Father. 28 Yeshue said to them again, “When you have lifted up the Son of Man, then you will know that I am [he] and [that] I did not do anything of my own will, but as my Father has taught me, so I speak. 29 And he who sent me is with me and my Father does not leave me alone, because I always do that which pleases him.” 30 While he was speaking these [things], many believed in him. 31 And Yeshue said to those Yehudaye who believed in him, “If you will remain in my word, you [are] truly my disciples. 32 And you will know the truth and that truth will set you free.” 33 They said to him, “We [are] the seed of Avraham and bondage has not ever been served by us to anyone. How can you say, “You will be free men?”“ 34 Yeshue said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, everyone who commits sin is the servant of sin. 35 And a servant does not remain in the house forever, but the Son remains forever. 36 Therefore, if the Son should free you, you will truly be free men. 37 I know that you [are] the seed of Avraham, but you are seeking to kill me, because you do not empty yourselves [to make room] for my word. 38 What I have seen with my Father, I speak, and what you have seen with your father, you do.” 39 They answered and said to him, “Our father is Avraham.” Yeshue said to them, “If you were the children of Avraham, you would do the works of Avraham. 40 But now, behold, you are seeking to kill me, a man who has spoken the truth with you, that which I have heard from Alaha. Avraham did not do this, 41 but you are doing the works of your father.” They said to him, “We were not [born] of fornication. We have one Father, Alaha.” 42 Yeshue said to them, “If Alaha was your Father, you would love me, for I have gone out and I have come from Alaha and it was not of my own will, but rather he sent me. 43 Why do you not understand my word concerning [this]? Because you are not able to hear my word. 44 You are from [your] father, the Accuser. And you desire to do the lust of your father, he who from the beginning killed men and he [who] does not stand in the truth, because he has no truth. When he speaks a lie, he speaks from himself, because he [is] a liar, even its originator. 45 Now because I speak the truth, you do not believe me. 46 Which of you rebukes me concerning sin? And if I speak the truth, why do you not believe me? 47 He who is of Alaha hears the words of Alaha. Because of this, you do not hear, because you are not of Alaha.” 48 The Yehudaye answered and said to him, “Did we not well say that you are a Shamraya and you have a devil?” 49 Yeshue said to them, “I do not have a devil. But rather, I honor my Father and you curse me. 50 And I do not seek my [own] glory. There is one who seeks [it] and judges. 51 Truly, truly I say to you, he who keeps my word will not see death forever.” 52 The Yehudaye said to him, “Now we know that you have a devil. Avraham and the prophets died and you say, “Whoever keeps my word will not taste death forever.” 53 Are you greater than our father Avraham who died and the prophets who died? Whom do you make yourself?” 54 Yeshue said to them “If I praise myself, my praise is nothing. My Father is the one who praises me, [of] whom you say, “He is our Alaha.” 55 And you do not know him, but I know him. And if I say that I do not know him, I would be a liar like you. But I know him and I keep his word. 56 Avraham, your father, was longing to see my day and he saw [it] and rejoiced.” 57 The Yehudaye said to him, “You are not yet fifty years old and you have Page 103 of 276

seen Avraham?” 58 Yeshue said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, before Avraham was, I was.” 59 And they took up rocks to stone him, yet Yeshue hid himself and went away from the temple and passed among them and left.

JOHN CHAPTER 9
And as he passed by, he saw a man who was blind from the womb of his mother. 2 And his disciples asked him and said, “Our Master, who sinned, this [man] or his parents, that he was born being blind?” 3 Yeshue said to them, “He did not sin, nor his parents, but that the works of Alaha may be seen in him. 4 It is necessary for me to work the works of him who sent me while it is day. The night will come when no one will be able to serve. 5 As long as I am in the world, I am the light of the world.” 6 And while he said these [things], he spat on the ground and formed clay from his saliva and he rubbed [it] on the eyes of that blind man. 7 And he said to him, “Go [and] wash in the pool of Shilukha.” And he went [and] washed and he came seeing. 8 Now his neighbors and those who previously had seen him begging were saying, “Is this [man] not he who was sitting and begging?” 9 [There were] some who were saying, “This was he,” yet [others] who were saying, “No, but he really resembles him.” Now he said, “I am [he].”10 They said to him, “How were your eyes opened?” 11 He answered and said to them, “A man whose name is Yeshue made clay and rubbed [it] on me, on my eyes, and said to me, “Go [and] wash in the water of Shilukha.” And I went, I washed and I began to see. 12 They said to him, “Where is he?” He said to them, “I do not know.” 13 And they brought him who previously was blind to the Perishye. 14 Now it was the Shabtha when Yeshue made the clay and opened his eyes for him. 15 And again the Perishye asked him, “How did you begin to see?” And he said to them, “He placed clay on my eyes and I washed and I began to see.” 16 And some of the Perishye were saying, “This man is not from Alaha, who does not keep the Shabtha.” But others were saying, “How is a man [who is] a sinner able to do these miracles?” And there was division among them. 17 Again they said to that blind man, “What do you say about him who opened your eyes for you?” He said to them, “I say that he is a prophet.” 18 But the Yehudaye did not believe that he was blind and [then] saw, until they called the parents of him who saw. 19 And they asked them, “Is this your son whom you say was born being blind? How does he now see?” 20 Now his parents answered and said, “We know that this is our son and that he was born being blind, 21 but how he now sees or who opened his eyes for him, we do not know. Indeed, he is of age. Ask him. He will speak for himself.” 22 His parents said these [things], because they were afraid of the Yehudaye, for the Yehudaye had decided that if anyone would confess him, that he was Meshikha, they would put him out of the synagogue. 23 Because of this, his parents said, “He is of age. Ask him.” 24 And they called the man who was blind a second time and said to him, “Give glory to Alaha, for we know that this man is a sinner.” 25 He answered and said to them, “If he is a sinner, I do not know, but one [thing] I do know, I was blind and now, behold, I see.” 26 Again they said to him, “What did he do to you? How did he open your eyes for you?” 27 He said to them, “I told you and you did not hear. What do you want to hear again? Do you also want to become his disciples?” 28 And they reviled him and said to him, “You are his disciple, but we are disciples of Mushe. 29 And we know that Alaha spoke with Mushe, but this [man], we do not know from where he is.” 30 That man answered and said to them, “In this there is therefore [something] to be amazed at, because you do not know from where he is, yet he opened Page 104 of 276

my eyes. 31 Now we know that Alaha does not hear the voice of sinners, but whoever fears him and does his will, he hears. 32 Never before has it been heard that anyone has opened the eyes of one who was born blind. 33 If this [man] was not from Alaha, he would not be able to do this.” 34 They answered and said to him, “You were born entirely in sins, yet you teach us?” And they put him out. 35 And Yeshue heard that they had put him out and he found him and said to him, “Do you believe in the Son of Alaha?” 36 That one who was healed answered and said, “Who is he, my Lord, that I may believe in him?” 37 Yeshue said to him, “You have seen him and he who speaks with you is him.” 38 And he said, “I believe, my Lord.” And he fell down [and] worshipped him. 39 And Yeshue said, “I have come for the judgment of this world, so that those who do not see may see and those who see may become blind.” 40 And those of the Perishye who were with him heard these [things] and said to him, “Are we also blind?” 41 Yeshue said to them, “If you were [only] blind, you would have no sin.” But now you say, “We see. Because of this, your sin is established.”

JOHN CHAPTER 10
Truly, truly, I say to you, whoever does not enter the sheepfold of the flock by the gate, but climbs up by another place, that [man] is a thief and a robber. 2 But he who enters by the gate is the shepherd of the flock, 3 and for this [man], the keeper of the gate opens the gate. And the flock hears his voice and he calls his sheep by their names and leads them out. 4 And when he leads out his flock, he goes before it and his sheep follow him, because they know his voice. 5 Now the flock will not follow a stranger, but rather it flees from him, because it does not know the voice of a stranger.” 6 Yeshue told them this parable, but they did not understand what he said to them. 7 Now again Yeshue said to them, “Truly, truly I say to you, I am the gate of the flock. 8 And all those who come are thieves and robbers, unless the flock hears them. 9 I am the gate and if anyone should enter by me, he will live. And he will enter and he will go out and find pasture.10 A thief does not come, except to steal and to kill and to destroy. I have come that they may have life and [that] they may have that which is abundant. 11 I am the good shepherd. A good shepherd lays down his life on behalf of his flock. 12 But a hired servant, who is not the shepherd nor are the sheep his, when he sees a wolf coming, leaves the flock and flees. And the wolf comes [and] plunders and scatters the flock. 13 Now a hired servant flees, because he is a hired servant and he does not care about the flock. 14 I am the good shepherd and I know my own and I am known by my own, 15 as my Father knows me and I know my Father and I lay down my life on behalf of the flock. 16 Now I also have other sheep, those that are not from this sheepfold, and it is also necessary for me to bring them. And they will hear my voice and all the flock will become one and [have] one shepherd. 17 Because of this, my Father loves me, because I lay down my life that I may take it up again. 18 No one takes it away from me, but rather I lay it down by my [own] will, for I have authority to lay it down and I have authority to take it up again, for I have received this command from my Father.” 19 And again there was division among the Yehudaye, because of these words. 20 And many of them were saying, “He has a devil and is quite insane. Why do you listen to him?” 21 But others were saying, “These are not the words of a possessed [man]. Is a devil able to open the eyes of a blind man?” 22 Now the feast of dedication was in Urishlem and it was winter. 23 And Yeshue was walking in the temple, in the porch of Shelemun. 24 And the Yehudaye gathered around him and said to him, “How long will Page 105 of 276
1

you keep us [waiting]? If you are Meshikha, tell us openly.” 25 Yeshue answered and said to them, “I told you and you do not believe and the works that I do in the name of my Father testify about me. 26 But you do not believe, because you are not of my sheep, as I said to you. 27 My sheep hear my voice and I know them and they follow me. 28 And I give them eternal life and they will not be destroyed forever and no one will seize them out of my hands. 29 For my Father who gave [them] to me is greater than all and no one is able to seize [them] out of the hand of my Father. 30 I and my Father are one.” 31 And again the Yehudaye took up rocks to stone him. 32 Yeshue said to them, “I have shown you many good works from my Father. Because of which work of them do you stone me?” 33 The Yehudaye said to him, “We do not stone you because of the good works, but rather because you have blasphemed, and being a man, you make yourself Alaha.” 34 Yeshue said to them, “Is it not so written in your Namusa: I have said, you are gods? 35 If he called those [people] gods, because the word of Alaha was with them and the scripture is not able to be broken, 36 to him whom the Father made holy and sent to the world do you say, “You blaspheme,” because I told you that I [am] the Son of Alaha? 37 Unless I do the works of my Father, do not believe me. 38 But if I do, even if you do not believe me, believe the works, that you may know and believe that my Father [is] in me and I [am] in my Father.” 39 And they were seeking to arrest him again, yet he escaped from their hands. 40 And he went to the crossing of the Yurdinan, to the place where Yukhanan had been previously when he was baptizing and he stayed there. 41 And many men came to him and were saying, “Yukhanan did not even do one sign, but everything that Yukhanan said about this man is true.” 42 And many believed in him.

JOHN CHAPTER 11
Now there was a certain [man] who was sick, Leayzar from the town [of] Beth-Naiya, the brother of Maryam and Marta. 2 And it was this Maryam who anointed the feet of Yeshue with perfume and wiped [them] with her hair. Leayzar who was sick was the brother of this [one]. 3 And his two sisters sent to Yeshue and said, “Our Lord, behold, he whom you love is sick.” 4 Now Yeshue said, “This sickness is not to death, but rather for the glory of Alaha, so that the Son of Alaha may be glorified because of him.” 5 Now Yeshue loved Marta and Maryam and Leayzar. 6 And when he heard that he was sick, he remained in the place that he was [for] two days. 7 And afterwards he said to his disciples, “Come, let us go again to Yehuda.” 8 His disciples said to him, “Our Master, the Yehudaye now are seeking to stone you and you are going there again?” 9 Yeshue said to them, “Are [there] not twelve hours in a day? And if a man walks in the day he will not stumble, because he sees the light of this world.10 But if a man should walk in the night, he will stumble, because he has no illumination.” 11 These [things] Yeshue said and afterward he said to them, “Leayzar, our friend, sleeps, but I am going to wake him.” 12 His disciples said to him, “Our Lord, if he sleeps, he will be healed.” 13 But Yeshue spoke about his death, yet they thought that he spoke about sleeping on a bed. 14 Then Yeshue said to them plainly, “Leayzar has died. 15 And I rejoice that I was not there for your sakes, so that you may believe. But let us walk there.” 16 [Then] Tama, who was called the Twin, said to his fellow disciples, “Let us also go [and] die with him.” 17 And Yeshue came to Beth-Naiya and found him to have been in the tomb for four days. 18 Now Beth-Naiya was near to Urishlem, being about fifteen furlongs away from it. 19 And many of the Yehudaye were coming to Marta and Maryam to comfort their heart[s] because of their brother. 20 And Marta, when she had heard that Yeshue had come, went out to Page 106 of 276
1

meet him, but Maryam was sitting in the house. 21 And Marta said to Yeshue, “My Lord, if only you would have been here, my brother would not have died. 22 But even now, I know that whatever you ask Alaha he will give to you.” 23 Yeshue said to her, “Your brother will rise up.” 24 Marta said to him, “I know that he will rise up in the resurrection in the last day.” 25 Yeshue said to her, “I am the resurrection and the life. He who believes in me, even if he should die, will live. 26 And everyone who is alive and believes in me will not ever die. Do you believe this?” 27 She said to him, “Yes, my Lord. I am a believer that you are Meshikha, the Son of Alaha, who has come into the world.” 28 And when she had said these [things], she went [and] called Maryam her sister secretly and said to her, “Our Master has come and calls for you.” 29 And Maryam, when she heard [it], rose up quickly and came to him. 30 Now Yeshue had not yet come into the village, but was in that place that he met Marta. 31 And those Yehudaye also who were with her in the house, who were comforting her, when they saw Maryam, that she quickly rose [and] went out, followed her. For they thought that she was going to the grave to weep. 32 But Maryam, when she came [to] where Yeshue was and saw him, fell down at his feet and said to him, “If only you had been here, my Lord, my brother would not have died.” 33 And when Yeshue saw her weeping and those Yehudaye who had come with her who were weeping, he groaned in his spirit and was moved [in] his soul. 34 And he said, “Where have you laid him?” And they said to him, “Our Lord, come [and] see.” 35 And the tears of Yeshue came. 36 And the Yehudaye were saying, “See how much he loved him.” 37 Now some of them said, “Was not this [one] able, who opened the eyes of that blind man, to do [something], so that this [man] would not have died also?” 38 And Yeshue, groaning in himself, came to the tomb. And that tomb was a cave and a stone was placed on its entrance. 39 And Yeshue said, “Take away this stone.” Marta, the sister of that dead man, said to him, “My Lord, he already stinks, for it is the fourth day.” 40 Yeshue said to her, “Did I not tell you that if you would believe, you would see the glory of Alaha?” 41 And they took away that stone and Yeshue raised up his eyes and said, “Father, I thank you that you have heard me. 42 And I know that you always hear me, but because of this crowd that stands [here] I have said these [things], so that they will believe that you have sent me.” 43 And when he had said these [things], he cried out with a loud voice, “Leayzar, come outside.” 44 And that dead man came out, his hands and feet being bound in swathing and his face bound in burial cloth. Yeshue said to them, “Untie him and allow [him] to go.” 45 And many of the Yehudaye who had come with Maryam, when they saw what Yeshue had done, believed in him. 46 And some of them went to the Perishye and told them what Yeshue had done. 47 And the chief priests and the Perishye were gathered together and were saying, “What will we do? For this man does many signs, 48 and if we allow him [to continue] like this, all men will believe in him and the Romans will come [and] take away our land and our nation.” 49 But one of them, whose name [was] Qayapha, was the high priest for that year and he said to them, “You do not know anything. 50 And do you not realize that it is better for us that one man should die for the nation, than [that] the whole nation should be destroyed?” 51 Now he did not say this from his own will. But because he was the high priest for that year, he prophesied that Yeshue was going to die for the nation, 52 and not only for the nation, but that he should also gather together into one the sons of Alaha who are scattered. 53 And from that day, they decided to kill him. 54 Now Yeshue did not walk openly among the Yehudaye, but he went from there to a place that was near the wilderness, to a walled city that was called Aphreeim. And there he was staying with his disciples. 55 Now the Petskha of the Yehudaye was near. And many from the villages went up to Urishlem before the feast to purify themselves. 56 And they were seeking Yeshue and were saying one to another in the temple, “What do you think? Will he not come to the feast?” 57 Now Page 107 of 276

the chief priests and the Perishye had commanded that if anyone knew where he was, he should show [it] to them, so that they could arrest him.

JOHN CHAPTER 12
Now six days before the Petskha, Yeshue came to Beth-Naiya where Leayzar was, whom Yeshue had raised from the dead. 2 And they made a dinner for him there and Marta was serving and Leayzar was one of the guests who [were] with him. 3 And Maryam took an alabaster vase of perfume of the best spikenard, very expensive, and anointed the feet of Yeshue and wiped his feet with her hair and the house was filled with the smell of the perfume. 4 And Yehudah Sekariuta, one of his disciples, he who was about to betray him, said, 5 “Why was this oil not sold for three hundred denarii and given to the poor?” 6 Now he said this, not because he cared for the poor, but because he was a thief and the bag was with him and he was carrying whatever fell into it. 7 But Yeshue said, “Leave her. She has kept it for the day of my burial, 8 for you always have the poor with you, but you do not always have me.” 9 And large crowds of the Yehudaye heard that Yeshue was there and came, not because of Yeshue alone, but also to see Leayzar who was raised from the dead.10 And the chief priests were thinking that they should also kill Leayzar, 11 because many of the Yehudaye, on account of him, went away and were believing in Yeshue. 12 And on the next day a large crowd that had come to the feast, when they heard that Yeshue was coming to Urishlem, 13 took branches of palm trees and went out to meet him. And they were crying out and saying: Hosanna, blessed is he who comes in the name of Marya, the king of Israyel. 14 And Yeshue found a donkey and sat on it, as it was written: 15 Do not fear, daughter of Tsehyun. Behold, your king comes to you and is mounted on a colt, the foal of a donkey. 16 Now these [things] his disciples did not understand at that time, but when Yeshue was glorified, his disciples remembered that these [things] were written about him and [that] they had done these [things] to him. 17 And the crowd that was with him was bearing testimony that he had called Leayzar from the grave and raised him from the dead. 18 And because of this, large crowds went out to meet him, because they heard that he had done this sign. 19 Now the Perishye were saying to each other, “Do you see that you do not gain anything? For behold, the whole world goes after him. 20 And there were also some of the Gentiles, men among them who had gone up to worship at the feast. 21 These [men] came [and] drew near to Philip who [was] from Beth-Sayada of Galila and asked him and said to him, “My lord, we want to see Yeshue.” 22 And Philip came and told Andrew and Andrew and Philip told Yeshue. 23 And Yeshue answered and said to them, “The hour has come for the Son of Man to be glorified. 24 Truly, truly I say to you, a grain of wheat, except it fall and die in the ground, remains alone. But if it dies, it will produce much fruit. 25 He who loves his life will lose it, and he who hates his life in this world will keep it to eternal life. 26 If anyone serves me, he should follow me. And wherever I am, there will my servant be also. He who serves me, the Father will honor him. 27 Now behold, my soul is troubled. And what do I say, “My Father, deliver me from this hour?” On the contrary, because of this, I have come to this hour. 28 [I will say] “Father, glorify your name.”“ And a voice was heard from heaven, “I have glorified [it] and again I will glorify [it].” 29 And the crowd that was standing by heard [it] and said, “It was thunder.” But others said, “An angel spoke with him.” 30 Yeshue answered and said to them, “This voice was not for me, but it was for you. 31 Now is the judgment of this world. Now the ruler of this world is cast outside. 32 And when I am lifted up Page 108 of 276

from the earth, I will draw all men to me.” 33 And this he said to show by what death he would die. 34 The crowds said to him, “We have heard from the Namusa that Meshikha remains forever. How do you say that the Son of Man is going to be lifted up? Who is this Son of Man?” 35 Yeshue said to them, “The light is with you a little while longer. Walk while you have light, so that the darkness will not overtake you. And he who walks in darkness does not know to where he goes. 36 While you have the light, believe in the light that you may become sons of light.” Yeshue spoke these [things] and went [and] hid from them. 37 And although he did all these miracles before them, they did not believe in him, 38 that the word of Eshaya the prophet would be fulfilled, who said: My Marya, who has believed our report and to whom has the arm of Marya been revealed? 39 Because of this, they were not able to believe, because again Eshaya said: 40 They have blinded their eyes and have darkened their heart[s], so that they would not see with their eyes and would understand with their heart[s] and would repent and I would heal them. 41 These [things] Eshaya said, when he saw his glory and spoke about him. 42 Now many of the rulers also believed in him, but because of the Perishye, they did not confess [him], lest they should be [put] out of the synagogue, 43 for they loved the praise of men more than the praise of Alaha. 44 Now Yeshue cried out and said, “He who believes in me does not believe in me, but in him who sent me. 45 And he who sees me, sees him who sent me. 46 I have come [as] a light to the world that all who believe in me would not remain in darkness. 47 And he who hears my words, yet does not keep them, I do not judge, for I did not come to judge the world, but to give life to the world. 48 He who rejects me and does not receive my words, there is something that judges him. The word that I speak will judge him in the last day, 49 because I do not speak from myself, but rather the Father who sent me gave me a command, what I [should] say and what I [should] speak. 50 And I know that his command is eternal life. Therefore, these [things] that I speak, as my Father told me, so I speak.”

JOHN CHAPTER 13
Now before the Feast of the Petskha, Yeshue knew that the hour had arrived that he would go out of this world to his Father. And he loved his own who were in this world and he loved them until the end. 2 And when it was supper, it was placed by Satan in the heart of Yehudah, the son of Shimon Sekariuta, that he should betray him. 3 And Yeshue, because he knew that the Father had given everything into his hands and that he had proceeded from Alaha and was going to Alaha, 4 rose up from the supper and lay aside his garments and took a cloth [and] girded his loins. 5 And he poured water into a bowl and began to wash the feet of his disciples and he was wiping [them] with the cloth that girded his loins. 6 Now when he came to Shimon Kipha, Shimon said to him, “My Lord, do you wash my feet for me?” 7 Yeshue answered and said to him, “What I am doing you do not understand now, but afterwards you will understand.” 8 Shimon Kipha said to him, “You will not ever wash my feet for me.” Yeshue said to him, “Unless I wash you, you have no portion with me.” 9 Shimon Kipha said to him, “Then, my Lord, wash not only my feet for me, but also my hands, even my head.”10 Yeshue said to him, “He who has bathed does not need [to wash his whole body], but to only wash his feet, for all of him is clean. Also, all of you are clean, but not all of you.” 11 For Yeshue knew him who would betray him. Because of this, he said, “Not all of you are clean.” 12 And after he had washed their feet, he took up his garments and sat and said to them, “Do you know what I have done to you? Page 109 of 276

13

You call me “our Master and our Lord” and you speak well, for I am. 14 If therefore I, your Lord and your Master, have washed your feet for you, how much more ought you to wash the feet of one another? 15 For I have given you this example, that you should also do as I have done for you. 16 Truly, truly I say to you, there is no servant who is greater than his lord and there is not an apostle who is greater than him who sent him. 17 If you understand these [things], you are blessed if you will do them. 18 I do not speak concerning all of you, for I know those whom I have chosen, but rather [I speak] because the scripture will be fulfilled: He who eats bread with me has lifted his heel against me. 19 I tell you from now on before it happens, so that when it happens, you will believe that I am [he]. 20 Truly, truly I say to you, he who receives him whom I send receives me, and he who receives me receives him who sent me. 21 Yeshue said these [things] and he groaned in his spirit and testified and said, “Truly, truly I say to you, one of you will betray me.” 22 And the disciples looked at each other, because they did not know about whom he spoke. 23 Now there was one of his disciples who was reclining on his bosom, he whom Yeshue loved. 24 Shimon Kipha waved to this [one] that he should ask him who it was about whom he spoke. 25 And that disciple fell on the breast of Yeshue and said to him, “My Lord, who is this [man]?” 26 Yeshue answered and said, “He [is] the one to whom I give the bread that I dip.” And Yeshue dipped the bread and gave [it] to Yehudah, son of Shimon Sekariuta. 27 And after the bread, then Satan entered him and Yeshue said to him, “What you do, do quickly.” 28 Now not one of those guests understood what he said to him. 29 For some thought because Yehudah had the bag with him that he had expressly commanded him to buy something that was needed for the feast or to give something to the poor. 30 Now Yehudah took the bread immediately and went outside. And it was night when he went out. 31 And Yeshue said, “Now the Son of Man is glorified and Alaha is glorified in him. 32 And if Alaha is glorified in him, Alaha also will glorify him in himself and will glorify him at once. 33 My sons, a little while longer I am with you and you will seek me and as I said to the Yehudaye, “Where I go, you are not able to come,” yet even now I say to you. 34 A new commandment I give to you, be loving one to another. As I loved you, you should also love one another. 35 By this everyone will know that you [are] my disciples, if love be among you one toward another.” 36 Shimon Kipha said to him, “Our Lord, where are you going?” Yeshue answered and said to him, “Where I go you are not now able to follow me, but you will come [after me] at the end.” 37 Shimon Kipha said to him, “My Lord, why am I not able to follow you now? I will lay down my life for you.” 38 Yeshue said to him, “Will you lay down your life for me? Truly, truly I say to you, the rooster will not crow until you deny me three times.”

JOHN CHAPTER 14
“Let your heart not be troubled. Believe in Alaha and believe in me. 2 There are many rooms [in] the house of my Father. And [if] not, I would have told you, for I go to prepare a place for you. 3 And if I go [and] prepare a place for you, I will come again and I will take you with me, so that where I am you may be also. 4 And to where I go, you know and the way you know.” 5 Tama said to him, “Our Lord, we do not know where you are going and how are we able to know the way?” 6 Yeshue said to him, “I am the way and truth and life. No one comes to my Father except by me. 7 If you knew me, you would also know my Father. And from now on, you will know him and you have seen him.” 8 Philip said to him, “Our Lord, show us the Father Page 110 of 276
1

and it will satisfy us.” 9 Yeshue said to him, “[Have] I [been] with you all this time and you do not know me, Philip? He who sees me sees the Father. And how do you say, “Show us the Father?”10 Do you not believe that I [am] in my Father and my Father [is] in me? These words that I speak, I do not speak of myself, but my Father who lives in me works these works. 11 Believe that I [am] in my Father and my Father [is] in me. Otherwise, believe also because of the works. 12 Truly, truly I say to you, whoever believes in me, these works that I do, he also will do and more than these will he do, because I go to the Father. 13 And whatever you ask in my name, I will do for you, so that the Father will be glorified by his Son. 14 And if you ask of me in my name, I will do [it]. 15 If you love me, keep my commandments. 16 And I will ask of my Father and he will give you another Deliverer, who will be with you forever, 17 the Rukha of truth that the world is not able to receive, because it has not seen him and does not know him. But you know him, because he lives with you and he [is] in you. 18 I will not leave you [as] orphans, for I will come to you in a little while. 19 And the world will not see me, but you will see me. Because I live, you also will live. 20 In that day you will know that I [am] in my Father and you [are] in me and I [am] in you. 21 He who has my commandments with him and keeps them, that [one] loves me. And he who loves me will be loved by my Father and I will love him and I will show myself to him.” 22 Yehudah, not Sekariuta, said to him, “My Lord, why is it you are going to show yourself to us and not to the world?” 23 Yeshue answered and said to him, “He who loves me will keep my word and my Father will love him and we will come to him and we will make a dwelling with him. 24 But he who does not love me will not keep my word. And this word that you have heard is not mine, but rather of the Father who sent me. 25 I have spoken these [things] with you while I am with you. 26 But that Deliverer, the Rukha d’Qudsha, whom my Father will send in my name, will teach you everything and will remind you of all that I said to you. 27 I leave you peace, my own peace I give to you. Not as the world gives, do I give to you. Let not your heart[s] be troubled and do not fear. 28 You have heard that I have said to you that I will go [away] and I will come to you. If you love me, you would have rejoiced that I go to my Father, because my Father is greater than I [am]. 29 And now, behold, I have told you before it happens, so that when it happens you will believe. 30 After this, I will not speak many [things] with you, for the ruler of the world comes and he does not have anything in me. 31 But that the world may know that I love my Father and as my Father has commanded me, so I do. Rise up, let us go from here.

JOHN CHAPTER 15
I am the vine of truth and my Father is the vine-dresser. 2 Every branch that is on me [that] does not bear fruit he takes away. And that which bears fruit, he prunes, so that it may produce much fruit. 3 You are pruned already, because of the word that I have spoken with you. 4 Remain in me and I [will remain] in you. As the branch is not able to produce fruit of itself, unless it will remain in the vine, so neither [will] you, unless you remain in me. 5 I am the vine and you [are] the branches. He who remains in me and I in him, this [one] will bring much fruit, because without me you are not able to do anything. 6 Now except a man remains in me, he is thrown outside like a branch that has withered and they gather and place it in the fire that it may burn. 7 But if you remain in me and my words remain in you, whatever you want to ask, you will have. 8 In this the Father is glorified, that you bear much fruit and be my disciples. 9 As my Page 111 of 276
1

Father has loved me, so also I have loved you. Remain in my compassion.10 If you keep my commandments, you will remain in my love, as I have kept the commandments of my Father and remain in his love. 11 These [things] I have spoken with you, so that my joy would be in you and [that] your joy would be made full. 12 This is my commandment, that you love one another as I have loved you. 13 There is no love that is greater than this, that a man would lay down his life for his friends. 14 You are my friends, if you do all that I command you. 15 No longer do I call you servants, because a servant does not know what his lord does, but I have called you my friends, because everything that I have heard from my Father I have made known to you. 16 You did not choose me, but I have chosen you and I have appointed you that you also should go [and] bear fruit and [that] your fruit should remain, so that whatever you ask of my Father in my name, he will give to you. 17 These [things] I command you, that you should love one another. 18 And if the world hates you, know that it hated me before you. 19 Now if you are of the world, the world would love its own. But you are not of the world, for I have chosen you out of the world. Because of this, the world hates you. 20 Remember the saying that I told you, “There is no servant who is greater than his lord.” If they persecute me, they will also persecute you. And if they keep my word, they will also keep yours. 21 But all these [things] they will do to you because of my name, because they do not know him who sent me. 22 If I had not come [and] spoken with them, they would have no sin. But now they have no excuse for their sin. 23 He who hates me also hates my Father. 24 And if I had not done deeds before their eyes that another man did not do, they would have no sin. But now they have seen and have hated both me and also my Father, 25 that the word that is written in their Namusa would be fulfilled: They hated me without a cause. 26 Now when the Deliverer comes, whom I will send to you from my Father, the Rukha of truth who has proceeded from my Father, he will testify about me. 27 You also will testify, because you [were] with me from the beginning.

JOHN CHAPTER 16
These [things] I have spoken with you, so that you will not be offended. 2 For they will put you out of their synagogues and the hour will come when all who kill you will think that he offers an offering to Alaha. 3 And they will do these [things], because they do not know either my Father or me. 4 These [things] I have spoken with you, so that when their time has come, you will remember that I told you. Now I did not tell you these [things] previously, because I was with you. 5 But now I go to him who sent me, yet not one of you asks me, “Where are you going?” 6 For I have told you these [things] and sorrow has come and filled your hearts. 7 But I tell you the truth, it is profitable for you that I go, for if I do not go, the Deliverer will not come to you. But if [I] go, I will send him to you. 8 And when he has come, he will reprove the world concerning sin and concerning justification and concerning judgment-9 concerning sin, because they do not believe in me,10 and concerning justification, because I go to my Father and you will not see me again, 11 and concerning judgment, because the ruler of this world is judged. 12 Again, I have much to say to you, but you are not able to accept [it] now. 13 But when the Rukha of truth comes, he will lead you into all truth, for he will not speak of his own mind. But everything that he hears, he will speak and he will make known to you future [things]. 14 And he will glorify me, because he will receive from me and will show [it] to you. 15 Everything that belongs to my Father is mine. Because of this, I have told you that he will receive from me and will show [it] to Page 112 of 276
1

you. 16 A little while and you will not see me and again a little while and you will see me, because I go to the Father.” 17 And his disciples said to one another, “What is this that he tells us, “A little while and you will not see me and again a little while and you will see me,” and, “I go to my Father?”“ 18 And they were saying, “What is this little while that he spoke of? We do not understand what he says.” 19 Now Yeshue knew that they wanted to ask him and he said to them, “Are you questioning each other about this, because I said to you, “A little while and you will not see me and again a little while and you will see me”? 20 Truly, truly I say to you, you will weep and you will mourn, yet the world will rejoice. And you will have sadness, but your sorrow will become joy. 21 A woman, when she gives birth, has sadness, because the day of her birthing has come. But when she has given birth to a son, she does not remember her ordeal, because of the joy that a man has been born into the world. 22 You also now have sadness, but I will see you again and your heart[s] will rejoice and no one will take your joy from you. 23 And in that day you will not ask me anything. Truly, truly I say to you, everything that you ask of my Father in my name, he will give to you. 24 Until now you have not asked for anything in my name. Ask and you will receive, so that your joy may be full. 25 These [things] I have spoken with you with comparisons. But the hour comes when I will not speak to you with comparisons, but I will openly make known to you about the Father. 26 In that day, you will ask in my name and I will not say to you that I will ask the Father for you. 27 For the Father loves you, because you have loved me and you have believed that I proceeded from before the Father. 28 I proceeded from before the Father and came to the world and again I will leave the world and I will go to the Father.” 29 His disciples were saying to him, “Behold, now you speak clearly and you do not speak one comparison. 30 Now we know that you know everything and have no need of a man to ask you. In this we believe that you proceeded from Alaha.” 31 Yeshue said to them, “Believe, 32 for behold, the hour comes and now has come, when you will be scattered, [each] man to his place and you will leave me alone. Yet I will not be alone, because the Father is with me. 33 These [things] I have told you, so that you may have peace about me. In the world you will have affliction, but take courage, I have conquered the world.”

JOHN CHAPTER 17
These [things] Yeshue spoke and he raised his eyes to heaven and said, “My Father, the hour has come. Glorify your Son, so that your Son may glorify you. 2 According as you have given him authority over all flesh, to whomever you have given him, he will give eternal life. 3 Now this is eternal life, that they will know you, that you alone are the Alaha of truth and he whom you have sent [is] Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 I have glorified you on the earth. The work that you gave me to do I have completed. 5 And now, my Father, glorify me with you with that glory that I had with you before the world was. 6 I have made known your name to the men whom you gave to me from the world. They were yours and you gave them to me and they have kept your word. 7 Now I know that whatever you gave me was from before you, 8 for the words that you gave me, I gave to them and they received [them] and they know truly that I have proceeded from before you and they believe that you sent me. 9 And I pray for them. I do not pray for the world, but for those whom you gave me, because they are yours.10 And everything that is mine is yours and yours is mine and I am glorified by them. 11 From now on, I will not be in the world, yet these are in the world and I am coming to you, holy Father. Keep them in your name, [those] Page 113 of 276
1

whom you gave me, so that they be one as we [are]. 12 While I was with them in the world, I have kept them in your name. Those whom you gave me, I have kept and not one of them is lost, except for the son of destruction, that the scripture would be fulfilled. 13 But now I come to you. And these [things] I speak in the world, so that my joy will be full in them. 14 I have given them your word and the world hates them, because they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 15 I do not pray that you should take them from the world, but that you would keep them from the Evil [one], 16 for they are not of the world, as I am not of the world. 17 Father, set them apart by your truth, for your word is truth. 18 As you sent me into the world, so also I send them into the world. 19 And for their sakes I set myself apart, so that they also may be set apart in truth. 20 And I do not pray for the sake of these only, but also for the sake of those who will believe in me through their word, 21 so that all of them may be one as you [are], my Father in me and I in you, so that they also may be one in us, so that the world may believe that you have sent me. 22 And the glory that you gave me, I gave to them, so that they may be one as we are one, 23 I in them and you in me, that they be perfected into one, and that the world may know that you have sent me and that you have loved them, as also you have loved me. 24 Father, I desire that those whom you gave me may also be with me where I am, so that they may see my glory that you gave me, because you loved me from before the foundations of the world. 25 My upright Father, the world has not known you, but I know you and they know that you sent me. 26 And I have made known your name to them and I will make [it] known, so that the love [with] which you loved me will be in them and I will be in them.”

JOHN CHAPTER 18
These [things] Yeshue spoke and he went out with his disciples to the other side of the brook of Qedrun, a place that had a garden, where he entered, he and his disciples. 2 Now Yehudah, the betrayer, also knew that location, because Yeshue had gathered there many times with his disciples. 3 Therefore, Yehudah took a company of soldiers and he took guards from the chief priests and the Perishye and came there with torches and lamps and weapons. 4 Now Yeshue, because he knew everything that was coming concerning him, went out and said to them, “Whom do you seek?” 5 They said to him, “Yeshue, the Natsraya.” Yeshue said to them, “I am [he].” Now Yehudah, the betrayer, was also standing with them. 6 And when Yeshue said to them, “I am [he],” they went backwards and fell on the ground. 7 Yeshue again asked them, “Whom do you seek?” And they said, “Yeshue, the Natsraya.” 8 Yeshue said to them, “I told you that I am [he] and if you seek me, allow these to go,” 9 that the word that he had said would be fulfilled, “I have not lost any of those whom you gave me, not even one.”10 But Shimon Kipha had a sword on him and he drew it and struck the servant of the high priest and took off his right ear. Now the name of the servant [was] Malchus. 11 And Yeshue said to Kipha, “Place the sword into its sheath. Should I not drink the cup that my Father has given to me?” 12 Then the company of soldiers and the captains and the guards of the Yehudaye arrested Yeshue and bound him. 13 And they brought him to Khanan first, because he was the father-in-law of Qayapha, who was the high priest of that year. 14 (Now Qayapha was he who had counseled the Yehudaye that it was expedient that one man should die on behalf of the people.) 15 Now Shimon Kipha and one of the other disciples were following Yeshue. And that disciple knew the high priest and he entered the hall with Yeshue. 16 But Shimon was standing outside by the gate. And that other Page 114 of 276
1

disciple, who knew the high priest, went out and spoke to the keeper of the gate and brought in Shimon. 17 And the young woman, the keeper of the gate, said to Shimon, “Are you also [one] of the disciples of this man?” He said to her, “No.” 18 And the servants and guards were standing and had made a fire to warm themselves because it was cold. Now Shimon was also standing with them and warming himself. 19 And the high priest asked Yeshue about his disciples and about his teaching. 20 And Yeshue said to him, “I spoke openly with the people and I always taught in the synagogue and in the temple, where all the Yehudaye are gathered and I did not say anything in secret. 21 Why do you ask me? Ask those who heard what I spoke with them. Behold, they know everything that I have said.” 22 And when he had said these [things], one of the guards who was standing [there] struck Yeshue on his cheek and said to him, “Do you give such an answer to the high priest?” 23 Yeshue answered and said to him, “If I have spoken wickedly, bear witness against the wickedness, yet if [I have spoken] well, why do you strike me?” 24 Now Khanan sent Yeshue bound to Qayapha, the high priest. 25 And Shimon Kipha was standing and warming himself and they said to him, “Are you not also one of his disciples?” And he denied [it] and said, “I am not.” 26 One of the servants of the high priest, a kinsman of him whose ear Shimon had cut off, said to him, “Did I not see you with him in the garden?” 27 And again Shimon denied [it] and immediately the rooster crowed. 28 Now they brought Yeshue from Qayapha into the judgment hall and it was daybreak. And they did not enter into the judgment hall, so that they would not be defiled before they had eaten the Petskha. 29 And Pilate went outside to them and said to them, “What accusation do you have against this man?” 30 They answered and said to him, “If he was not a doer of evil, we would not even have delivered him to you.” 31 Pilate said to them, “Take him and judge him according to your Namusa. The Yehudaye said to him, “It is not lawful for us to kill a man,” 32 that the word would be fulfilled that Yeshue said when he made known with what death he was going to die. 33 Now Pilate entered the judgment hall and called Yeshue and said to him, “Are you the king of the Yehudaye?” 34 Yeshue said to him, “Do you say this of yourself or have others told you about me?” 35 Pilate said to him, “Am I a Yehudaya? Your countrymen and the chief priests have delivered you to me. What have you done?” 36 Yeshue said to him, “My kingdom is not of this world. If my kingdom were of this world, my servants would have fought, so that I would not be delivered to the Yehudaye. But now my kingdom is not from here.” 37 Pilate said to him, “Then [are] you a king?” Yeshue said to him, “You have said that I am a king. I was born for this and for this I came into the world that I would testify concerning the truth. Everyone who is of the truth hears my voice.” 38 Pilate said to him, “What is truth?” And after he had said this, he went out again to the Yehudaye and said to them, “I do not find even one fault in him. 39 But you have a custom that I should release someone to you during the Petskha. Therefore, do you want me to release to you this king of the Yehudaye?” 40 And all of them cried out and said, “Not this [man], but Bar-Aba.” Now this Bar-Aba was a thief.

JOHN CHAPTER 19
Then Pilate scourged Yeshue. 2 And the soldiers wove a crown of thorns and they placed it on his head and covered him with robes of purple. 3 And they were saying, “Peace [be] to you, king of the Yehudaye, and they were striking him on his cheeks.” 4 And Pilate went outside again and said to them, “Behold, I will bring him outside to you, so that you may know Page 115 of 276
1

that I can find not even one fault against him.” 5 And Yeshue went outside while the crown of thorns and robes of purple were on him and Pilate said to them, “Behold, the man.” 6 Now when the chief priests and guards saw him, they cried out and said, “Crucify him, crucify him.” Pilate said to them, “You take and crucify him, for I am not able to find a fault in him.” 7 The Yehudaye said to him, “We have a Namusa and according to that which is in our Namusa, he is deserving of death, because he made himself the Son of Alaha.” 8 And when Pilate heard this saying, he was more afraid. 9 And he entered again into the judgment hall and said to Yeshue, “Where [are] you from?” But Yeshue did not give him an answer.10 Pilate said to him, “Are you not speaking to me? Do you not know that I have the authority to release you and I have the authority to crucify you?” 11 Yeshue said to him, “You would have no authority over me at all, if it had not been given to you from above. Because of this, his sin who delivered me to you is greater than yours.” 12 And because of this, Pilate wanted to release him, but the Yehudaye were crying out, “If you release this [man], you are not the friend of Caesar, for everyone who makes himself a king is an opponent of Caesar.” 13 Now when Pilate heard this saying, he brought Yeshue outside and sat on the judgment seat in a place that is called “The Pavement of Stones,” but in Evraith is called Gephiphta. 14 And it was the day of preparation of the Petskha and it was about the sixth hour. And he said to the Yehudaye, “Behold, your king.” 15 And they were crying out, “Take him away, take him away. Crucify him, crucify him.” Pilate said to them, “Should I crucify your king?” The chief priests were saying, “We have no king, except Caesar.” 16 Then he delivered him to them that they might crucify him. And they led Yeshue out and took him, 17 bearing his cross, to a place that was called “The Skull,” but in Evraith is called Gagulta, 18 where they crucified him and with him two others, one on one side and one on the other and Yeshue in the center. 19 And Pilate also wrote a tablet and placed [it] on his cross. Now it was written like this, “Yeshue, the Natsraya, the king of the Yehudaye.” 20 And many of the Yehudaye read this board, because the place at which Yeshue was crucified was near to the city and it was written in Evraith and in Greek and in Latin. 21 And the chief priests said to Pilate, “Do not write that he is king of the Yehudaye, but rather, “He said I [am] the king of the Yehudaye.”“ 22 Pilate said, “What I have written, I have written.” 23 Now the soldiers, after they had crucified Yeshue, took his garments and made four pieces, a piece for each of the soldiers. But his robe was without seam from the top, completely woven. 24 And they said to one another, “Let us not tear it, but let us cast lots for it, whose it will be.” And the scripture was fulfilled that said: They divided my garments among themselves and for my clothes they cast a lot. These [things] the soldiers did. 25 Now standing at the cross of Yeshue were his mother and the sister of his mother and Maryam, who [was the wife] of Cleophas, and Maryam Magdelaita. 26 And Yeshue saw his mother and the disciple whom he loved who was standing [there] and he said to his mother, “Woman, behold your son.” 27 And he said to that disciple, “Behold, your mother.” And from that time, that disciple took her with him. 28 After these [things], Yeshue knew that everything was fulfilled. And so that the scripture would be fulfilled, he said, “I am thirsty.” 29 And a vessel was placed [there] that was full of vinegar. And they filled a sponge with the vinegar and placed [it] on hyssop and brought [it] to his mouth. 30 And after he had taken that vinegar, Yeshue said, “Behold, it is finished.” And he bowed his head and gave up his spirit. 31 Now the Yehudaye, because it was the day of preparation, said, “These bodies should not remain on their crosses, because the Shabtha is dawning, for the day of that Shabtha was a high day. And they begged Pilate that they might break the legs of those [who were] crucified and take them down. 32 And the soldiers came and broke the legs of the first and of that other [one] who was crucified with him. 33 And when they came to Yeshue, they saw that he was dead already Page 116 of 276

and did not break his legs. 34 But one of the soldiers struck him in his side with a spear and immediately blood and water came out 35 and the one who saw [it] testified and his testimony is true. And he knows that he spoke the truth that you also may believe. 36 For these [things] happened that the scripture would be fulfilled that said: A bone of him will not be broken. 37 And again another scripture that said: They will gaze at him whom they pierced. 38 After these [things], Yauseph, who was from Ramtha, requested from Pilate, because he was a disciple of Yeshue and was hiding for fear of the Yehudaye, that he might take away the body of Yeshue. And Pilate gave permission and he came and took the body of Yeshue. 39 And Nicodemus also came, who previously had come to Yeshue during the night, and he brought with him a mixture of spices of myrrh and of aloe, about one hundred Roman libras. 40 And they took the body of Yeshue and wrapped it in linen and with spices, as is the custom for the Yehudaye when they bury. 41 Now there was a garden in that location in which Yeshue was crucified and in that garden, a new tomb in which no one had yet been placed. 42 And they placed Yeshue there, because the Shabtha was beginning and because the grave was nearby.

JOHN CHAPTER 20
Now on the first of the week, Maryam Magdelaita came in the early morning while it was dark to the tomb. And she saw the stone that it was taken away from the grave. 2 And she ran [and] came to Shimon Kipha and to that other disciple whom Yeshue loved and she said to them, “They have taken our Lord from the tomb and I do not know where they have put him.” 3 And Shimon went and that other disciple and they came to the tomb. 4 And both of them were running together, but that disciple ran before Shimon and came to the tomb first. 5 And he looked in [and] saw the linen clothes laid [there], but he did not indeed enter. 6 Now Shimon came after him and entered the tomb and saw the linen clothes laid [there] 7 and the cloth that had been bound around his head, not with the linen clothes, but folded and placed aside in a certain place. 8 Then that disciple who had come to the tomb first entered also and he saw and believed, 9 for they did not yet know from the scriptures that he was going to rise from the dead. 10 And those disciples went away again to their place. 11 Now Maryam was standing by the grave and was crying. And as she cried, she looked into the grave. 12 And she saw two angels in white who were sitting, one by his pillows and one at his feet, where the body of Yeshue had been laid. 13 And they said to her, “Woman, why are you crying?” She said to them, “Because they have taken away my Lord and I do not know where they have put him.” 14 She said this and she turned back and saw Yeshue standing [there]. And she did not know that it was Yeshue. 15 Yeshue said to her, “Woman, why are you crying and whom do you seek?” Now she thought that he was the gardener and said to him, “My lord, if you have taken him, tell me where you have put him. I will go [and] take him away.” 16 Yeshue said to her, “Maryam.” And she turned around and said to him in Evraith, “Rabbuli,” which means Teacher. 17 Yeshue said to her, “Do not touch me, for I have not yet ascended to my Father. But go to my brothers and tell them [that] I ascend to my Father and your Father, and [to] my Alaha and your Alaha.” 18 Then Maryam Magdelaita came and declared to the disciples that she had seen our Lord and that he had told her these [things]. 19 Now when it was the evening of that first day in the week and the doors were shut where the disciples were because of fear of the Yehudaye, Yeshue came [and] stood among them and said to them, “Peace [be] with you.” 20 He said this and showed them his hands and his side and the Page 117 of 276
1

disciples rejoiced that they had seen our Lord. 21 And Yeshue said to them again, “Peace [be] with you. As my Father has sent me, I also send you.” 22 And when he had said these [things], he breathed on them and said to them, “Receive the Rukha d’Qudsha. 23 If you forgive sins of anyone, they will be forgiven him, and if you retain [the sins] of anyone, they will be retained.” 24 Now Tama, one of the twelve who was called the Twin, was not there with them when Yeshue came. 25 And the disciples told him, “We have seen our Lord.” But he said to them, “Unless I see in his hands the locations of the nails and place my fingers in them and stretch out my hand on his side, I will not believe.” 26 And after eight days the disciples again were inside and Tama [was] with them. And while the doors were closed, Yeshue came [and] stood in the middle and said to them, “Peace [be] with you.” 27 And he said to Tama, “Reach your finger here and see my hands. And reach your hand and stretch [it] out on my side and do not be an unbeliever, but a believer.” 28 And Tama answered and said to him, “My Lord and my Alaha.” 29 Yeshue said to him, “Now that you have seen me, you have believed. Blessed [are] those who have not seen me and believe.” 30 Now Yeshue did many other signs before his disciples that are not written in this book. 31 But even these [things] were written that you would believe that Yeshue is Meshikha, the Son of Alaha, and [that] when you believe, you would have eternal life through his name.

JOHN CHAPTER 21
After these [things], Yeshue showed himself again to his disciples by the sea of Tiberias. And he appeared like this. 2 There were together, Shimon Kipha and Tama who was called the Twin, and Nathanayil, who was from Qatne of Galila, and the sons of Zabedai and two of the other disciples. 3 Shimon Kipha said to them, “I am going to catch fish.” They said to him, “We will also come with you.” And they went out and boarded a ship. And during that night they did not catch anything. 4 Now when it was morning, Yeshue stood on the shore of the sea. And the disciples did not know that it was Yeshue. 5 And Yeshue said to them, “Children, do you have anything to eat?” They said to him, “No.” 6 He said to them, “Cast your net from the right side of the boat and you will find.” And they cast [it] and they were not able to drag in the net from the great number of fish that it had caught. 7 And that disciple whom Yeshue loved said to Kipha, “This [man] is our Lord.” Now Shimon, when he heard that it was our Lord, took his garment [and] girded his loins, because he was naked, and threw himself in the sea to come to Yeshue. 8 But the other disciples came in the boat, for they were not very far from the land, but [only] about two hundred cubits and they were dragging in that net of fish. 9 And when they had climbed up to the land, they saw burning coals placed [there] and fish placed on them and bread.10 And Yeshue said to them, “Bring some of those fish that you have just now caught.” 11 And Shimon Kipha boarded [the boat] and dragged the net to land, full of large fish, one hundred fifty-three. And with this entire load, that net was not torn. 12 And Yeshue said to them, “Come [and] eat.” And not one of the disciples dared to ask him who he was, because they knew that he was our Lord. 13 Now Yeshue came near and took the bread and fish and gave to them. 14 This [was] the third time Yeshue had appeared to his disciples after he had risen from the dead. 15 Now after they had eaten, Yeshue said to Shimon Kipha, “Shimon, Bar-Yauna, do you love me more than these?” He said to him, “Yes, my Lord, you know that I love you.” He said to him, “Feed my lambs for me.” 16 He said to him again a second time, “Shimon, Bar-Yauna, do you love me?” He said to him, “Yes, my Lord, you know that I love you.” Yeshue said to him, “Feed Page 118 of 276
1

my sheep for me.” 17 He said to him a third time, “Shimon, Bar-Yauna, do you love me?” And Kipha was sad, because he had said to him a third time, “Do you love me?” And he said to him, “My Lord, you know everything. You know that I love you.” Yeshue said to him, “Feed my ewes for me. 18 Truly, truly I say to you, when you were a boy, you girded your loins by yourself and you walked to where you wanted, but when you grow old, you will stretch out your hands and another will gird your loins for you and conduct you to where you do not want [to go].” 19 Now he said this to show by what death he would glorify Alaha. And after he had said these [things], he said to him, “Follow me.” 20 And Shimon Kipha turned and saw the disciple whom Yeshue loved who followed him, who fell on the breast of Yeshue during the supper and said, “My Lord, who will betray you?” 21 When Kipha saw this [man], he said to Yeshue, “My Lord, and what [of] this [man]?” 22 Yeshue said to him, “If I desire that this [man] should remain until I come, what is it to you? Follow me.” 23 And this saying went out among the brothers that that disciple would not die. But Yeshue did not say that he would not die, but rather, “If I desire that this [man] should remain until I come, what is it to you?” 24 This is the disciple who testified about all these [things] and also wrote them and we know that his testimony is true. 25 Now there are also many other [things] that Yeshue did, which if they were written one by one, not even the world (as I suppose) would be sufficient for the books that would be written.

ACTS
CHAPTER 1
I wrote the former book, oh Theophilus, concerning all those [things] that our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha began to do and to teach, 2 until that day in which he was taken up, after he had commanded the apostles, those whom he had chosen by the Rukha d’Qudsha, 3 those to whom he also showed himself alive after he had suffered with many signs for forty days, while he was seen by them and spoke about the kingdom of Alaha. 4 And as he ate bread with them, he commanded them that they should not leave Urishlem, but that they should wait for the promise of the Father, about which [he said], “You have heard from me. 5 For Yukhanan immersed with water, yet you will be immersed with the Rukha d’Qudsha after not many days.” 6 Now while they were assembled, they asked him and said to him, “Our Lord, at this time will you restore the kingdom to Israyel?” 7 He said to them, “This is not yours to know the time or these times that the Father has placed in his own authority. 8 But when the Rukha d’Qudsha comes on you, you will receive power and you will be witnesses for me in Urishlem and in all Yehuda and also among the Shamraye, even to the ends of the earth.” 9 And after he said these [things], while they watched him, he was taken up and a cloud received him and he was hidden from their eyes. 10 And while they were staring into heaven as he was going away, two men were found standing near them in white clothing. 11 And they said to them, “Galilaye men, why are you standing and staring into heaven? This Yeshue, who was taken up from you into heaven, will come in the same manner as you have seen him who went up to heaven.” 12 And afterwards, they returned to Urishlem from the mountain that is called the Mount of Olives, which was near Urishlem and distant from it about seven furlongs. 13 And after they entered, they went up to an upper room, in which Peter and Yukhanan and Yaquv and Andrew and Philip and Tama and Mattai and Bar-Tulmai and Yaquv, the son of Alphaeus, and Shimon, the zealot, and Yehudah, the son of Yaquv were staying. 14 All of these as one were steadfast in prayer with one soul with the women and with Maryam, the mother of Yeshue, and with his brothers. 15 And among them in those days, Shimon Kipha stood up in the middle of the disciples (now there was a gathering there of about one hundred and twenty men) and he said, 16 “Men, our brothers, it was right that the scripture should be fulfilled, which the Rukha d’Qudsha foretold by the mouth of Dawid, about Yehudah who was a guide to those who arrested Yeshue, 17 because he was numbered with us and he had a portion in this ministry. 18 This is he who acquired a field for himself from the wage of sin and fell on his face on the ground and burst from his middle and all his insides poured out. 19 And this was known to all who lived in Urishlem and so that field was called in the language of the country, “Akeldama,” which [by] interpretation is, “Field of Blood.” 20 For it is written in the book of Psalms: Let his habitation be desolate and let no one be a dweller in it and let another take his ministry. 21 It is right, therefore, for one of these men who were with us during this whole time in which our Lord Yeshue entered and went out among us, 22 who began from the immersion of Yukhanan until the day that he was taken up from [being] with us, to be a witness of his resurrection with us.” 23 And they caused two to stand, Yauseph, who was called Bar-Shaba, who was named Justus, and Matiya. 24 And when they prayed, they said, “Marya, you know what is in the hearts of all. Reveal the one that you have chosen of these two, 25 that he should receive a portion of the ministry and apostleship from which Yehudah left to go to his Page 120 of 276
1

place. 26 And they cast lots and it fell on Matiya and he was numbered with the eleven apostles.

ACTS CHAPTER 2
And when the days of Pentecost were fulfilled as all were assembled together, 2 suddenly there was a sound from heaven as a powerful wind and the whole house in which they were sitting was filled with it. 3 And tongues that were divided appeared to them as fire and sat on each one of them. 4 And all of them were filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and they began to speak in different languages, as the Rukha gave them to speak. 5 And there were men who were living in Urishlem who feared Alaha, Yehudaye from all the nations that are under heaven. 6 And when that sound occurred, all the people gathered and were troubled, because each one of them heard that they were speaking in their [own] languages. 7 And all of them were amazed and wondered, saying to each other, “All these who are speaking, behold, are they not Galilaye? 8 How do we each hear the language into which we were born? 9 Parthians and Madaye and Alanaye, and those who dwell in Beth-Nahrain, Yehudaye and Cappadocians and those from the region of Pontus and of Asia,10 and those from the region of Phrygia and of Pamphylia and of Egypt and of the regions of Libya that are near to Cyrene, and those who have come from Rome, Yehudaye and proselytes, 11 and those from Crete, and Arabians, behold, we hear them, that they are speaking in our languages the wonders of Alaha.” 12 And all of them were amazed and wondered, saying to one another, “What is this event?” 13 And others were mocking them, saying, “These [men] have drunk new wine and are intoxicated.” 14 Afterward, Shimon Kipha stood up with the eleven apostles and raised his voice and said to them, “Men, Yehudaye, and all who live in Urishlem, let this be known to you and listen to my words. 15 For these [men] are not intoxicated, as you suppose, for behold, it is still only the third hour. 16 But this is that which was spoken by Yuyel the prophet: 17 It will be in the last days, said Alaha, [that] I will pour out my Rukha on all flesh. Your sons will prophesy and your daughters and your young men will see visions, and your old men will dream dreams. 18 And on my servants and on my handmaidens I will pour out my spirit in those days and they will prophesy. 19 And I will give signs in heaven and mighty works on the earth, blood and fire and vapor of smoke. 20 The sun will be turned to darkness and the moon into blood before the great and terrible day of Marya will come. 21 And it will be [that] everyone who calls on the name of Marya will live. 22 Men, sons of Israyel, hear these words! Yeshue the Natsraya, a man who was shown to you by Alaha with miracles and with signs and with mighty works that Alaha did among you by his hand, as you know, 23 this [man], who was set apart for this by the foreknowledge and will of Alaha, you delivered into the hands of ungodly [men] and you crucified and you killed. 24 But Alaha raised him and released the cords of Sheol, because it was not possible that he should be held captive in Sheol. 25 For Dawid spoke about him, I foresaw my Marya at all times, for he is at my right hand, so that I will not be moved. 26 Because of this, my heart rejoices and my praise flourishes and also my body will lie down in hope, 27 because you will not leave my soul in Sheol, neither will you allow your innocent [one] to see corruption. 28 You have revealed to me the way of life. you will fill me with gladness with your presence. 29 Men, our brothers, allow [me] to speak boldly with you about the patriarch Dawid, who is dead and also buried and whose tomb is with us until today. 30 For he was a prophet and knew that Alaha had sworn oaths to him: Of the fruit of your loins I will establish [one] on your throne. 31 And he foresaw and spoke about the resurrection of Meshikha: Page 121 of 276
1

He was not left in Sheol, neither did his body see corruption. 32 This Yeshue has Alaha raised and all of us are his witnesses. 33 And this is he who is elevated at the right hand of Alaha and received from the Father the promise concerning the Rukha d’Qudsha. And he has poured out this gift that behold, you see and you hear. 34 For Dawid did not ascend into heaven, because he said, Marya said to my Lord, sit at my right hand 35 until I place your enemies [as] a footstool for your feet. 36 Therefore, all the house of Israyel should truly know that Alaha has made this Yeshue, whom you crucified, Marya and Meshikha.” 37 And when they heard these [things], they were moved in their heart[s] and said to Shimon and to the rest of the apostles, “What should we do, our brothers?” 38 Shimon said to them, “Repent and be immersed, each one of you, in the name of Marya Yeshue for the forgiveness of sins, so that you will receive the gift of the Rukha d’Qudsha. 39 For the promise is to you and to your children and to all those who are far away, those whom Alaha will call.” 40 And with many other words he testified to them and begged them, saying, “Live apart from this perverse generation.” 41 And some of them willingly received his word and believed and were immersed. And there were added in that day about three thousand people. 42 And they were steadfast in the teaching of the apostles and were fellowshipping in prayer and in the breaking [of the bread] of communion. 43 And fear was to every person and many signs and mighty works occurred by way of the apostles in Urishlem. 44 And all those who had believed were as one and everything that they had was held in common. 45 And those who had wealth sold it and distributed to each one according to whatever was needed. 46 And every day they were steadfast in the temple with one soul and at home they were breaking bread and were receiving food, rejoicing. And in the simplicity of their heart[s] 47 they were praising Alaha, while giving mercies before all the people. And our Lord added every day those who were being given life in the church.

ACTS CHAPTER 3
And it happened that while Shimon Kipha and Yukhanan were going up together to the temple at the time of prayer at the ninth hour, 2 and behold, men were carrying a certain man who was lame from the womb of his mother. These [were men] who were accustomed to bringing and laying him at the gate of the temple, which was called Beautiful, so that he could ask alms from those who were entering the temple. 3 This [man], when he saw Shimon and Yukhanan entering the temple, begged them to give him alms. 4 And Shimon and Yukhanan looked at him and said to him, “Look at us.” 5 And he looked at them, expecting to receive something from them. 6 Shimon said to him, “I have no gold and silver, but what I have I will give to you. In the name of Yeshue-Meshikha the Natsraya, rise up [and] walk.” 7 And he took him by his right hand and raised him up. And immediately his feet and his ankles were strengthened. 8 And he leaped up [and] stood and walked and entered with them into the temple, walking and leaping and praising Alaha. 9 And all the people saw him walking and praising Alaha.10 And they recognized that he was that beggar who sat every day and asked alms at the gate that was called Beautiful. And they were filled with amazement and wonder at what had happened. 11 And while he held Shimon and Yukhanan, all the people, being amazed, ran to them, to the porch that was called Shelemun’s [Porch]. 12 And when Shimon saw [it], he answered and said to them, “Men, sons of Israyel, why do you wonder at this [man]? Or why do you look at us as if by our own power or by our authority we did this, so that this [man] would walk? 13 The Page 122 of 276
1

Alaha of Avraham and of Iskhaq and of Yaquv, the Alaha of our fathers, has glorified his Son Yeshue, whom you delivered up and denied in the presence of Pilate, after he had thought it right to let him go. 14 But you denied the Holy and Just [one] and requested that a murderer should be given to you. 15 And you killed that Prince of Life, whom Alaha raised from the dead. And we all are his witnesses. 16 And by the faith of his name he has strengthened and healed this [man], whom you see and know, and faith that is in him has given him this wholeness before all of you. 17 But now, our brothers, I know that through ignorance you did this, as did your leaders. 18 And Alaha, according to what he preached beforehand by the mouth of all the prophets, that his Meshikha would suffer, has fulfilled [it] in this manner. 19 Repent, therefore, and be converted, so that your sins will be blotted out and times of rest will come to you from the presence of Marya. 20 And he will send to you him who was prepared for you, Yeshue-Meshikha, 21 whom it is required for heaven to retain, until the fullness of the times of all those [things] that Alaha spoke by the mouth of his holy prophets of old. 22 For Mushe said: Marya will raise up a prophet for you from your brothers like me. Hear him in whatever he speaks to you. 23 And it will be [that] every person that does not hear that prophet, that person will perish from his people. 24 And all the prophets from Shemuyel and those who were after him spoke and preached about those days. 25 You are the sons of the prophets and of the covenant that Alaha established with our fathers, when he said to Avraham: In your seed all the families of the earth will be blessed. 26 He has first appointed to you and Alaha has sent his Son to bless you, if you will be converted and repent from your evil [ways].

ACTS CHAPTER 4
And while they were speaking these words to the people, the priests and the Zaduqaye and the rulers of the temple stood up against them, 2 being furious at them that they taught the people and preached about Meshikha concerning the resurrection from the dead. 3 And they seized them and kept them for the next day, because evening was drawing near. 4 And many who heard the word believed. And there were about five thousand men in number. 5 And on the next day, the rulers and elders and Saphrey were gathered together, 6 and also Khanan, the high priest, and Qayapha and Yukhanan and Alexander and those who were of the family of the chief priests. 7 And after they had placed them in the middle, they asked them, “By what power or in what name have you done this?” 8 Then Shimon Kipha was filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and said to them, “Rulers of the people and elders of the house of Israyel, hear [me]. 9 If today we are judged by you concerning the good [thing] that happened to the sick man, by what [means] this [man] was healed,10 let this be known to you and to all the people of Israyel, that in the name of Yeshue-Meshikha the Natsraya, whom you crucified, whom Alaha raised from the dead, by that same [one], behold, this [man] stands before you whole. 11 This is the stone that you builders rejected and he has become the head of the corner. 12 And there is no deliverance by another man, for there is no other name under heaven that is given to men by which it is possible to have life.” 13 And when they heard the word of Shimon and of Yukhanan that they spoke boldly, they perceived that they were unlearned and ignorant. And they marveled at them and recognized that they had associated with Yeshue. 14 And they saw the lame [man], who had been healed, standing with them and they were not able to say anything against them. 15 Then they commanded that they should remove them from their assembly. And they were saying to each Page 123 of 276

other, 16 “What should we do to these men? For behold, a visible sign that has happened by their hands is known to all the inhabitants of Urishlem and we are not able to deny [it]. 17 But so that this rumor does not spread any more among the people, we should threaten them that they should not speak again to anyone among men in this name.” 18 And they called them and commanded them that they should absolutely not speak or teach in the name of Yeshue. 19 Shimon Kipha and Yukhanan answered and said to them, “You judge if it is right before Alaha that we should obey you more than Alaha. 20 For we are not able not to speak what we have seen and heard.” 21 And they threatened them and released them, for they did not find a cause for which to punish them because of the people, for everyone was glorifying Alaha for what had happened. 22 For that man, on whom this sign of healing happened, was more than forty years old. 23 And when they were released, they went to their brothers and told them all that the priests and elders had said. 24 And when they heard [it], they raised their voice as one to Alaha and said, “Marya, you are Alaha, who made the heaven and earth and seas and everything that is in them. 25 And it is you who spoke by way of the Rukha d’Qudsha by the mouth of Dawid your servant: Why do the nations rage and the people consider vanity? 26 The kings of the earth and the rulers have risen up and have deliberated as one against Marya and against his Meshikha. 27 For truly Herod and Pilate with the Gentiles and the congregation of Israyel were gathered together in this city against the Holy [one], your Son, Yeshue, whom you anointed, 28 to do everything that your hand and your will foreordained to be [done]. 29 And also now, Marya, look and see their threats and allow your servants to boldly preach your word, 30 while you extend your hand for healings and mighty works and signs to be [done] in the name of your holy Son, Yeshue.” 31 And after they had prayed and made [this] request, the place in which they were gathered was shaken and all of them were filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and were boldly speaking the word of Alaha. 32 And the assembly of men who believed had one soul and one mind and not one of them said concerning the possessions that he owned that they were his, but everything that they had was held in common. 33 And with great power the apostles witnessed about the resurrection of Yeshue-Meshikha and great grace was with all of them. 34 And there was no one among them who was lacking, for those who owned fields and houses sold [them] and brought the price of what was sold 35 and placed [it] at the feet of the apostles and it was given to each one according to what he needed. 36 And Yauseph, who was called Bar-Naba by the apostles, which is interpreted, “son of comfort,” a Lewaya from the region of Cyprus, 37 had a field. And he sold it and brought its price and placed [it] before the feet of the apostles.

ACTS CHAPTER 5
And a certain man whose name was Khananya, with his wife, whose name was Sapphira, sold his field 2 and took [some] of its price and hid [it], his wife being aware of it. And he brought a part of the money and placed [it] before the feet of the apostles. 3 And Shimon said to him, Khananya, why is it that Satan has so filled your heart that you should lie to the Rukha d’Qudsha and hide some of the money of the sale of the field? 4 Was it not yours before it was sold? And after it was sold, again you were in control of its sale. Why have you decided in your heart to do this thing? You have not lied to men, but to Alaha. 5 And when Khananya heard these words, he fell down and died. And there was great fear among all those who heard. 6 And those who were young among them rose up and gathered him up and took [and] buried him. 7 And Page 124 of 276
1

after three hours had passed, his wife also entered, not knowing what had happened. 8 Shimon said to her, “Tell me if you sold the field for this sale price?” And she said, “Yes, for this sale price.” 9 Shimon said to her, “Because you have agreed to tempt the Rukha d’Marya, behold, the feet of the grave diggers of your husband [are] at the door and they will take you out.”10 And immediately, she fell before their feet and died. And those young men entered and found her dead. And they gathered [her] up, took [and] buried her by the side of her husband. 11 And there was great fear in all the church and among all those who heard. 12 And by way of the apostles many signs and mighty works occurred among the people. And they were all assembled together in Shelemun’s Porch. 13 And of other men, no one dared to come near to them, but the people magnified them. 14 And more were added who believed in Marya, a crowd of men and of women, 15 so that they brought out the sick into the streets, lying on pallets, that when Shimon should come by, at least his shadow would cover them. 16 And many came to them from other cities that were around Urishlem, bringing the sick and those who had unclean spirits and all of them were healed. 17 And the high priest and all who were with him who were of the teaching of the Zaduqaye were filled with envy. 18 And they seized the apostles and arrested [and] bound them [in] prison. 19 Then, during the night, an angel of Marya opened the door of the prison and took them out and said to them, 20 “Go! Stand in the temple and speak to the people all these words of life.” 21 And they went out at daybreak and entered the temple and were teaching. And the high priest and those who were with him called for their companions and the elders of Israyel and sent to the prison to bring out the apostles. 22 And when those who had been sent by them went, they could not find them [in] prison, and they turned [and] came [back], 23 saying, “We found the prison that was securely closed, and also the guards who were standing at the doors. And we opened [them], yet we did not find anyone there.” 24 And when the chief priests and rulers of the temple heard these words, they were amazed at them and were reasoning, “What is this?” 25 Then a man came [and] told them, “Those men that you confined [in] prison, behold, they are standing in the temple and teaching the people.” 26 Then the rulers with the guards went to have them brought, [but] not with violence, for they feared lest the people would stone them. 27 And when they had brought them, they caused them to stand them before all the assembly and the high priest began to speak to them. 28 “Did we not particularly command you that you should not teach anyone in this name? Now behold, you have filled Urishlem with your teaching. And you want to bring the blood of this man on us.” 29 Shimon answered with the apostles and said to them, “It is right to be persuaded by Alaha, more than by men. 30 The Alaha of our fathers raised Yeshue, whom you killed when you hung him on the tree. 31 Alaha has established this [man as] a leader and savior and has elevated him by his right hand to give repentance and forgiveness of sins to Israyel. 32 And we are witnesses of these words and [so] is the Rukha d’Qudsha that Alaha gives to those who believe in him.” 33 And when they heard these words, they were inflamed with anger and planned to kill them. 34 And one of the Perishye stood up, whose name was Gamaliel, a teacher of the Namusa and honored by all the people. And he commanded that they should take the apostles outside [for] a short time. 35 And he said to them, “Men, sons of Israyel, take precaution among yourselves and look at what you ought to do about these men. 36 For before this time, Theudas rose up and said about himself that he was someone great. And about four hundred men followed him. And he was killed and those who followed him were scattered and became as nothing. 37 And Yehudah the Galilaya rose up after him in the days that men were registered for the poll tax and caused many people to turn after him. And he died and all those who followed him were scattered. 38 And now I say to you, “Separate yourselves from these men and leave them alone,” for if this thought and this work is of men they will be Page 125 of 276

dismissed and pass away. 39 But if it is from Alaha, you are not able to stop it with your hands, lest you should be found standing against Alaha.” 40 And they were persuaded by him. And they called the apostles and beat them and commanded them that they should not speak in the name of Yeshue and released them. 41 And they left their presence, rejoicing that they were worthy to be despised because of the name. 42 And they did not cease to teach every day in the temple and at home and to preach about our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha.

ACTS CHAPTER 6
And in those days as the disciples multiplied, the Greek disciples were murmuring against the Evraye that their widows were neglected in the daily service. 2 And the twelve apostles called the whole assembly of disciples and said to them, “It is not good that we should leave the word of Alaha and serve tables. 3 Therefore, my brothers, search out and choose seven men from among you about whom there is a [good] testimony and [who] are full of the Rukha d’Marya and wisdom, and we will set them over this matter. 4 And we will be steadfast in prayer and in the ministering of the word.” 5 And this saying was good before all the people, and they chose Stephen, a man who was full of faith and the Rukha d’Qudsha, and Philip and Prochorus and Nicanor and Timon and Parmenes and Nicolas, an Antiochene proselyte. 6 These stood before the apostles and after they had prayed, they laid a hand on them. 7 And the word of Alaha grew and the number of disciples in Urishlem multiplied greatly and many people of the Yehudaye were obedient to the faith. 8 Now Stephen was full of grace and power and did signs and wonders among the people. 9 And men from the synagogue, which was called that of the Libertine, rose up, along with the Cyrenians and Alexandrians and those from Cilicia and from Asia, and they were disputing with Stephen.10 And they were not able to stand against the wisdom and the Rukha by which he spoke. 11 Then they sent men and instructed them to say, “We have heard him speak words of blasphemy against Mushe and against Alaha.” 12 And they stirred up the people and the elders and the Saphrey and came and stood against him and seized [and] brought him into the middle of the council. 13 And they set up false witnesses who said, “This man does not cease to speak words against the Namusa and against this holy place. 14 For we have heard him say that this Yeshue, the Natsraya, will destroy this place and will change the customs that Mushe delivered to you.” 15 And all those who were sitting in the synagogue looked at him and saw his face as the face of an angel.

ACTS CHAPTER 7
And the high priest asked him if these [things] were so. 2 And he said, “Men, our brothers and our fathers, listen. The Alaha of glory appeared to our father Avraham when he was in Beth-Nahrain before he came to live in Kharan. 3 And he said to him: Depart from your country and from among your kinsmen, and go to the country that I will show you. 4 And then Avraham left the land of the Chaldeans and came [and] lived in Kharan. And from there, after his father had died, Alaha moved him to this land in which you live today. 5 And he did not give Page 126 of 276
1

him an inheritance in it, not even a place to stand for [his] feet. And he promised that he would give it to him to inherit it, to him and to his seed, when he had no son. 6 And Alaha spoke with him, saying to him: Your seed will be a settler in a strange land, and they will subject him and treat him wickedly [for] four hundred years. 7 And I will judge the people whom they will serve [in] bondage, said Alaha. And after these [things] they will go out and serve me in this land. 8 And he gave him the covenant of circumcision. And then he fathered Iskhaq and circumcised him on the eighth day. And Iskhaq fathered Yaquv and Yaquv fathered our twelve fathers. 9 And our fathers were jealous of Yauseph and sold him into Egypt, yet Alaha was with him.10 And he delivered him from all of his adversities and gave him grace and wisdom before Pharoah, the king of Egypt, and he made him ruler over Egypt and over all his house. 11 And there was a famine and great calamity in all of Egypt and in the land of Canaan and there was nothing to sustain our fathers. 12 And when Yaquv heard that there was food in Egypt, he sent our fathers the first [time]. 13 And as they were going away the second time, Yauseph made himself known to his brothers and the family of Yauseph was made known to Pharoah. 14 And Yauseph sent and brought his father, Yaquv, and all his family. And they were seventy-five people in number. 15 And Yaquv went down to Egypt and died there, he and our fathers. 16 And he was moved to Shekim and placed in the grave that Avraham had bought with money from the sons of Khemur. 17 And when the time arrived for what Alaha had promised to Avraham with oaths, the people had multiplied and grown strong in Egypt, 18 until another king rose up over Egypt, who did not know Yauseph. 19 And he plotted against our family and dealt wickedly with our fathers and commanded that their infant boys should be cast away so that they would not live. 20 At that time Mushe was born and he was loved by Alaha. And he was nurtured three months [in] the house of his father. 21 And when he was cast away by his mother, the daughter of Pharoah found him and raised him for herself as a son. 22 And Mushe was instructed in all the wisdom of the Egyptians and he was prepared in his words and also in his actions. 23 And when he was forty years old, it came into his heart to visit his brothers, the sons of Israyel. 24 And he saw one of the sons of his tribe who was treated with violence and he avenged him and executed judgment on him and killed the Egyptian who had wronged him. 25 And he supposed that his brothers, the sons of Israyel, would understand that Alaha by his hand would give them deliverance, yet they did not understand. 26 And on another day, he was seen by them while they were quarreling with one another and he was persuading them to be reconciled, saying, “Men, you are brothers. Why do you wrong one another?” 27 But he who was wronging his neighbor, pushed him away from him and said to him: Who has set you over us [as] a ruler and judge? 28 Will you seek to kill me as you killed the Egyptian yesterday? 29 And Mushe fled at this saying and was a settler in the land of Medyan and he had two sons. 30 And after forty years were completed there, an angel of Marya appeared to him in the wilderness of Mount Sinai in a fire that burned in a bush. 31 And when Mushe saw [it] he was amazed at the vision and as he came near to see [it], Marya said to him in a voice: 32 I am the Alaha of your fathers, the Alaha of Avraham and of Iskhaq and of Yaquv. And as he was trembling, Mushe did not dare to look at the vision. 33 And Marya said to him: Loosen your sandals from your feet, for the ground on which you stand is holy. 34 I have indeed seen the torment of my people who are in Egypt and I have heard their groans and I have come down to deliver them. And now come, I will send you to Egypt. 35 This [is] Mushe, whom they denied, saying, “Who set you over us [as] a ruler and judge? This [man] Alaha sent to them [as] a ruler and deliverer by the hands of an angel who appeared to him in a bush. 36 This is he who brought them out after he had done signs and wonders and mighty works in the land of Egypt and in the Yama-Desup and in the wilderness [for] forty years. 37 This is Mushe, who said Page 127 of 276

to the sons of Israyel, “Marya Alaha will raise up a prophet for you from your brothers like me. Hear him.” 38 This is he who was in the assembly in the wilderness with the angel who spoke with him and with our fathers in the mountain of Sinai. And he is the one who received the living words to give to us. 39 And our fathers did not want to follow to him, but left him and in their hearts returned to Egypt, 40 saying to Ahrun: Make us gods to precede us, because this Mushe, who brought us out of the land of Egypt, we do not know what has happened to him. 41 And they made for themselves a calf in those days and they sacrificed sacrifices to the idols and they were rejoicing in the work of their hands. 42 And Alaha turned away and delivered them to serve the powers of heaven, as it is written in the book of the prophets: [For] forty years in the wilderness did you offer me a slain animal or a sacrifice, sons of Israyel? 43 But you carried the tabernacle of Moloch and the star of the god of Rephan, images that you made to worship. I will remove you beyond Babel. 44 Behold, the tabernacle of the testimony of our fathers was in the wilderness, as he who spoke with Mushe commanded to make it in the likeness that he showed him. 45 And our fathers, with Yeshue (Joshua), indeed brought this tabernacle also into the land that Alaha gave them [as] an inheritance from those nations that he threw out from before them. And it was carried about until the days of Dawid, 46 who found mercy before Alaha and requested that he find a tabernacle for the Alaha of Yaquv. 47 But Shelemun built the house. 48 And the Most High does not dwell in a work of hands, as the prophet said: 49 Heaven [is] my throne and earth a footstool that is under my feet. What is the house that you will build for me? says Marya. Or what is the place of my rest? 50 Behold, did not my hand make all these [things]? 51 Oh stiff of neck and without circumcision in their heart[s] and in their hearing! You always stand against the Rukha d’Qudsha. As your fathers [were], you [are] also. 52 For which of the prophets have your fathers not persecuted and killed, those who foretold about the coming of the Just [one], whom you delivered up and killed? 53 And you have received the Namusa by way of the command of angels and have not kept it.” 54 And when they heard these [things], they were filled with anger in themselves, and they gnashed their teeth against him. 55 And being full of faith and the Rukha d’Qudsha, he looked into heaven and saw the glory of Alaha and Yeshue standing at the right hand of Alaha. 56 And he said, “Behold, I see heaven opened and the Son of Man standing at the right hand of Alaha.” 57 And they cried out with a loud voice and closed their ears and all of them rushed on him. 58 And they arrested [and] took him outside of the city and stoned him. And those who witnessed against him laid their garments at the feet of a certain young man who was called Shaul. 59 And they stoned Stephen while he prayed and he said, “Our Lord Yeshue, receive my spirit.” 60 And while he was kneeling down, he cried out with a loud voice and said, “Our Lord, do not cause this sin to stand against them.” And after he said this, he fell asleep.

ACTS CHAPTER 8
And Shaul was consenting and participating in his murder. And there was in that day a great persecution of the church that was in Urishlem. And all were scattered into the villages of Yehuda and also among the Shamraye, except for the apostles only. 2 And faithful men gathered up [and] buried Stephen and they mourned over him greatly. 3 And Shaul was persecuting the church of Alaha, entering into houses and dragging away men and women and delivering [them] to prison. 4 And those who were scattered, traveled around and preached the word of Alaha. 5 Page 128 of 276

Now Philip went down to a city of the Shamraye and was preaching to them about Meshikha. 6 And when they heard his word, the men who were there listened to him and were persuaded by all that he said, because they saw the signs that he did. 7 For many, who were possessed with unclean spirits, cried out with a loud voice, and they came out of them. And others, paralytics and lame, were healed. 8 And there was great joy in that city. 9 And there was there a certain man whose name was Simun. And he had lived in that city a long time. And he was seducing the nation of the Shamraye with his sorceries, magnifying himself and saying, “I am a great [man].”10 And all of them were praying to him, great and small, and were saying, “This is the mighty power of Alaha.” 11 And all of them were persuaded by him, because he had astonished them a long time with his sorceries. 12 But when they believed Philip, who was preaching the kingdom of Alaha in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, they were immersed, men and women. 13 And even Simun believed and was immersed and was following Philip. And when he had seen the signs and the great miracles that happened by his hand, he was amazed and marveled. 14 And when the apostles who were in Urishlem heard that the nation of the Shamraye had received the word of Alaha, they sent Shimon Kipha and Yukhanan to them. 15 And they went down and prayed for them, so that they would receive the Rukha d’Qudsha. 16 For it was not yet on any of them, but they were only immersed in the name of our Lord Yeshue. 17 Then they placed a hand on them and they received the Rukha d’Qudsha. 18 And when Simun saw that by the placing of a hand of the apostles the Rukha d’Qudsha was given, he offered them money, 19 saying, “Give me also this authority that on whom I place a hand, he will receive the Rukha d’Qudsha.” 20 Shimon Kipha said to him, “Your money will go with you to destruction, because you thought that the gift of Alaha could be obtained with the wealth of the world. 21 You have no part or portion in this faith, because your heart is not straight before Alaha. 22 But repent from this, your evil, and implore Alaha that somehow the treachery of your heart will be forgiven you. 23 For I see that you are in bitter anger and in the bonds of wickedness.” 24 Simun answered and said, “Implore Alaha on my behalf that none of these [things] you have said will come on me.” 25 And Shimon and Yukhanan, when they had witnessed and taught the word of Alaha, returned to Urishlem and preached in many villages of the Shamraye. 26 And an angel of Marya spoke with Philip and said to him, “Rise up [and] go to the south on the desert road that goes down from Urishlem to Gahza.” 27 And he rose up [and] went. And he met a certain eunuch, who had come from Kush, an official of Candace, queen of the Kushaye. And he was responsible for all of her treasure and had come to worship in Urishlem. 28 And as he turned to go, he was sitting in a chariot and was reading in Eshaya the prophet. 29 And the Rukha said to Philip, “Go near and follow the chariot.” 30 And when he had gone near, he heard that he was reading in Eshaya the prophet and said to him, “Do you understand what you are reading?” 31 And he said, “How am I able to understand, unless someone instructs me?” And he begged Philip to come up and sit with him. 32 And the section of the scripture which he was reading was this, As a lamb he was led to the slaughter and as a sheep before the shearer is silent, even so he did not open his mouth. 33 In his humility he was led from prison and from judgment and his descendants, who will speak for [them]? For his life has been taken from the earth. 34 And that eunuch said to Philip, “I ask of you, concerning whom did the prophet speak this, of himself or of another man?” 35 Then Philip opened his mouth and from this same scripture began to preach to him about our Lord Yeshue. 36 And as they traveled on the road, they arrived at a certain place where there was water. And that eunuch said, “Behold, [here is] water. What is the hindrance that I may be immersed?” 37 And Philip said, “If you believe with a whole heart, it is allowed.” And that eunuch said to Philip, “I believe that Yeshue-Meshikha is the Son of Alaha.” 38 And he commanded the chariot to stop Page 129 of 276

and the two of them went down into the water and Philip immersed that eunuch. 39 And when they came up from the water, the Rukha d’Marya caught up Philip and that eunuch did not see him again, but went on his way, rejoicing. 40 And Philip was found at Azotus and from there was traveling around and preaching in all the cities, until he came to Caesarea.

ACTS CHAPTER 9
And Shaul was still full of threatening and the anger of murder against the disciples of our Lord. 2 And he asked for letters from the high priest to give to Damascus to the synagogues, that if he should find any who were following in this way, men or women, he could bind [and] bring them to Urishlem. 3 And as he went and approached Damascus, suddenly a light from heaven shone on him. 4 And he fell on the ground and heard a voice that said to him, “Shaul, Shaul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick at the goads.” 5 He answered and said, “Who are you, my Lord?” And our Lord said, “I am Yeshue, the Natsraya, whom you are persecuting. 6 But rise up, enter the city, and there you will be told about what you ought to do.” 7 And the men who were traveling with him on the journey were standing amazed, because they were hearing a voice only, but no one was visible to them. 8 And Shaul got up from the ground and he was not seeing anything, although his eyes were open. And holding [him] by his hands, they brought him to Damascus. 9 And he was not seeing [for] three days and he did not eat or drink.10 And there was a certain disciple in Damascus, whose name was Khananya. And Marya said to him in a vision, “Khananya.” And he said, “Behold, I [am here], my Lord.” 11 And our Lord said to him, “Rise up! Go to the street that is called Straight and ask at the house of Yehudah for Shaul, who is from the city [of] Tarsus, for behold, while he was praying, 12 he saw in a vision that a man whose name [was] Khananya entered and placed a hand on him, so that his eyes would be opened.” 13 And Khananya said, “My Lord, I have heard from many about this man, how many evil [things] he has inflicted on your holy [ones] in Urishlem. 14 And behold, also here, he has authority from the chief priests to bind all those who call on your name.” 15 And Marya said to him, “Rise up [and] go, because he is a chosen vessel for me to carry my name to the Gentiles and to kings and among the sons of Israyel, 16 for I will show him how much he will suffer on account of my name.” 17 Then Khananya went to him to the house and placed a hand on him and said to him, “Shaul, my brother, our Lord Yeshue, who appeared to you while you were coming on the road, has sent me, so that your eyes would be opened and you would be filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha.” 18 And immediately, something like scales fell from his eyes and his eyes were opened. And he rose up [and] was immersed 19 and he received food and was strengthened. And he was [some] days with the disciples who were in Damascus. 20 And immediately, he was preaching in the synagogues of the Yehudaye about Yeshue, that he was the Son of Alaha. 21 And all those who heard him were amazed and were saying, “Is this not he who persecuted all those who called on this name in Urishlem? Also, he was sent here for this same [thing], to bind and bring them to the chief priests.” 22 But Shaul was strengthened even more and confounded the Yehudaye, those who lived in Damascus, showing that this is the Meshikha. 23 And after he had been there many days, the Yehudaye planned treachery against him to kill him. 24 But the plot that they were seeking to do to him was made known to Shaul. And they watched the gates of the city, day and night, to kill him. 25 Then the disciples placed him in a basket and let him down from the wall during the night. 26 And he went to Urishlem and wanted Page 130 of 276
1

to join himself to the disciples, yet all were afraid of him and did not believe that he was a disciple. 27 But Bar-Naba took him and brought him to the apostles and related to them, how on the road he had seen Marya and how he spoke with him and how in Damascus he had spoken boldly in the name of Yeshue. 28 And he entered in and went out with them in Urishlem. 29 And he was speaking in the name of Yeshue boldly and disputing with the Yehudaye who understood in Greek. But they wanted to kill him 30 and when the brothers knew [this], they brought him to Caesarea by night and from there they sent him to Tarsus. 31 Nevertheless the church that was in all Yehuda and in Galila and in Shamrin had peace, being edified, and were proceeding in the fear of Alaha and were abounding in the comfort of the Rukha d’Qudsha. 32 And it happened that as Shimon was traveling around in the cities, he came down also to the holy [ones] who lived in the city [of] Lud. 33 And he found a certain man whose name [was] Aeneas who was lying on a pallet and was paralyzed [for] eight years. 34 And Shimon said to him, “Aeneas, Yeshue-Meshikha heals you. Rise up and smooth out your pallet.” And immediately he rose up. 35 And all who lived in Lud and in Sarauna saw him and turned to Alaha. 36 And there was a certain disciple in the city [of] Yupi, whose name was Tabitha. This [one] was rich in good deeds and in the charitable works that she did. 37 And she became sick in those days and died. And they washed her and laid her in an upper room. 38 And the disciples heard that Shimon was in the city [of] Lud, which was near Yupi. And they sent two men to him to ask him to come with them, [if] it was not tedious for him. 39 And Shimon rose up [and] went with them. And when he had come, they took him up to the upper room and all the widows gathered [and] stood around him, weeping and showing him the tunics and coats that Tabitha had given to them while she was alive. 40 Now Shimon put all the people outside and he kneeled down and prayed. And he turned to the dead body and said, “Tabitha, rise up.” And she opened her eyes and when she saw Shimon, she sat up. 41 And he stretched out his hand to her and raised her up. And called for the holy [ones] and widows and presented her to them alive. 42 And this was known in all the city and many believed in our Lord. 43 And he was in Yupi not a few days, lodging in the house of Shimon, a tanner.

ACTS CHAPTER 10
And there was a certain man in Caesarea, a centurion, whose name was Cornelius from the band of soldiers that was called the Italian. 2 And he was just and feared Alaha, he and all his house. And he did many charitable works among the people and was always seeking Alaha. 3 This [man] clearly saw an angel of Alaha in a vision [about] the ninth hour of the day, who came toward him and said to him, “Cornelius.” 4 And he looked at him and was afraid and said, “What, my Lord?” And the angel said to him, “Your prayers and your charity have come up for a remembrance before Alaha. 5 And now send men to the city [of] Yupi and bring Shimon, who is called Kipha. 6 Behold, he is living in the house of Shimon, the tanner, which is on the shore of the sea.” 7 And as the angel who had talked with him was going away, he called two of his household and a certain servant, who feared Alaha, one who obeyed him, 8 and told them everything that he had seen and sent them to Yupi. 9 And on the next day, while they were traveling on the journey and approaching the city, Shimon went up to the roof to pray at the sixth hour.10 And he was hungry and wanted to eat. And while they were preparing for him, astonishment came on him 11 and he saw heaven opened and a certain garment being held by Page 131 of 276
1

four corners. And it was like a large linen cloth and it was coming down from heaven to the earth. 12 And in it there were many four-footed animals and creeping things of the earth and birds of heaven. 13 And a voice came to him that said, “Shimon, rise up, kill and eat.” 14 And Shimon said, “Let it not be so, my Lord, because I have never eaten anything that is corrupt and unclean.” 15 And again a second time, a voice came to him, “That which Alaha has cleansed, do not regard as corrupt.” 16 And this happened three times and the garment was lifted up to heaven. 17 And while Shimon wondered in himself what was the vision that he had seen, those men who had been sent by Cornelius arrived. And they asked for the house in which Shimon lodged and they came and stood at the gate of the courtyard. 18 And they called there and asked, “Is Shimon, who is called Kipha, lodged here?” 19 And while Shimon thought on the vision, the Rukha said to him, “Behold, three men seek you. 20 Rise up, get down, and go with them, not letting your mind doubt, because I have sent them.” 21 Then Shimon went down to those men and said to them, “I am he whom you seek. What is the reason for which you have come?” 22 They said to him, “A certain man whose name [is] Cornelius, a centurion, an upright [man] who fears Alaha and about whom all the people of the Yehudaye give testimony, was told in a vision from a holy angel to send [and] bring you to his house and to hear a word from you. 23 And Shimon brought them in and received them where he lodged. And he rose up on the following day and left [and] went with them. And some of the brothers of Yupi went with him. 24 And on the next day, he entered Caesarea and Cornelius was waiting for them, all his kinsmen and also beloved friends that he had being assembled with him. 25 And as Shimon was entering, Cornelius met him and fell down [and] worshipped at his feet. 26 And Shimon raised him up and said to him, “Stand up. I am a man also.” 27 And while he was talking with him, he entered and found many who had come there. 28 And he said to them, “You know that it is not lawful for a Yehudaya man to associate with an alien man who is not [of] his race, yet Alaha showed me that I should not say about anyone that he is unclean or corrupt. 29 Because of this, I came promptly when you sent for me. But I ask you, “Why did you send for me?”“ 30 Cornelius said to him, “Four days have passed, since behold, I was fasting, and in the ninth hour while I was praying in my house, a certain man stood before me, wearing white [clothes].” 31 And he said to me, “Cornelius, your prayer has been heard and there is a remembrance of your charity before Alaha. 32 But send to the city [of] Yupi and bring Shimon, who is called Kipha. Behold, he is living in the house of Shimon, the tanner, which is on the shore of the sea. And he will come to speak to you. 33 And immediately I sent to you and you have done well that you came. Now behold, all of us [are] before you and we want to hear all that has been commanded to you from Alaha.” 34 And Shimon opened his mouth and said, “In truth, I perceive that Alaha is not a respecter of persons, 35 but among all the nations, he who fears him and works uprightness is acceptable to him. 36 For [this is] the word that he sent to the sons of Israyel and declared to them: Peace and harmony by way of Yeshue-Meshikha, who is Marya of all. 37 And you also know about the word that was in all Yehuda that went out from Galila after the immersion that Yukhanan preached 38 concerning Yeshue, who was from Natsrath, whom Alaha anointed with the Rukha d’Qudsha and with power. And this is he who traveled around and healed those who were oppressed by the Evil [one], because Alaha was with him. 39 And we are his witnesses concerning all that he did in all the region of Yehuda and of Urishlem. This same [one] the Yehudaye hung on a tree and killed. 40 And Alaha raised him after three days and allowed him to be seen openly. 41 Now [he was] not [seen] by all the people, but by us, those who were chosen by Alaha to be witnesses for him, for we ate and drank with him after his resurrection that was from the dead. 42 And he commanded us to preach and to witness to the people that he was the one who was appointed by Alaha [as] the judge of the living and of Page 132 of 276

the dead. 43 And concerning him all the prophets witness, so that whoever believes on his name will receive forgiveness of sins.” 44 And while Shimon was speaking these words, the Rukha d’Qudsha overshadowed all who were hearing the word. 45 And the circumcised brothers who had come with him were amazed and astonished that the gift of the Rukha d’Qudsha was poured out on the Gentiles also, 46 for they heard them speaking in various languages and magnifying Alaha. And Shimon said, 47 “Can anyone forbid water, so that those who, behold, have received the Rukha d’Qudsha as we, should not be immersed?” 48 Then he commanded them to be immersed in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. And they begged him to stay with them [some] days.

ACTS CHAPTER 11
And it was heard by the apostles and the brothers who were in Yehuda that the Gentiles had also received the word of Alaha. 2 And when Shimon went up to Urishlem, those who were from the circumcision were arguing with him, 3 saying that he had gone in with uncircumcised men and eaten with them. 4 And Shimon began in order to say to them, 5 “While I was praying in Yupi, I saw in a vision a certain garment, which resembled a linen cloth, that came down. And it was held by its four corners and it was lowered down from heaven and came all the way to me. 6 And I looked at it and saw that in it there were four-footed animals and creeping things of the earth and also birds of heaven. 7 And I heard a voice that said to me, “Shimon, rise up, kill and eat.” 8 And I said, “Let it not be so, my Lord, because that which is unclean and corrupt has never entered my mouth.” 9 And again a voice said to me from heaven, “That which Alaha has cleansed, do not regard as corrupt.”10 This happened three times and everything was taken up to heaven. 11 And immediately, three men, who were sent to me by Cornelius of Caesarea, came and stood at the gate of the courtyard in which I lodged. 12 And the Rukha said to me, “Go with them without doubt.” And these six brothers also came with me and we entered the house of the man. 13 And he related to us how he saw an angel in his house, who stood and said to him, “Send to the city [of] Yupi and bring Shimon, who is called Kipha. 14 And he will speak to you words by which you will have life, you and all your house.” 15 And as I began to speak there, the Rukha d’Qudsha overshadowed them, as [it had] previously on us. 16 And I remembered the word of our Lord, who said, “Yukhanan immersed with water, but you will be immersed with the Rukha d’Qudsha.” 17 Therefore, if Alaha equally gave the gift to the Gentiles that believed in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, as also to us, who was I that I should be able to hinder Alaha?” 18 And after they had heard these words, they were quiet and praised Alaha and were saying, “Doubtless, Alaha has also given repentance to life to the Gentiles.” 19 Now those who were scattered by the persecution that happened on account of Stephen, approached as far as Phoenicia and also to the region of Cyprus and to Antioch, speaking the word to no one, but to the Yehudaye only. 20 And there were men of them from Cyprus and from Cyrene. These entered Antioch and were speaking to the Greeks and preaching about our Lord Yeshue. 21 And the hand of Marya was with them and many believed and turned to Marya. 22 And this was heard by the ears of the clergy that were in Urishlem. And they sent Bar-Naba to Antioch. 23 And when he came there and saw the grace of Alaha, he rejoiced and begged them that with all their heart[s], they should follow our Lord, 24 because he was a good man and filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and with faith. And many people were added to our Lord. 25 And he went away to Tarsus to seek Shaul. 26 Page 133 of 276

And when he had found him, he brought him with him to Antioch. And they were gathered together with the church a whole year and they taught many people. From that time, the disciples were first called Christians in Antioch. 27 And in those days, prophets came there from Urishlem. 28 And one of them, whose name was Agabus, stood up and informed them spiritually that a great famine would occur in all the land. And this famine happened in the days of Claudius Caesar. 29 But nevertheless, the disciples, each one of them according to what he had, determined to send to the assistance of the brothers who were living in Yehuda. 30 And they sent, by way of Bar-Naba and Shaul, to the elders who were there.

ACTS CHAPTER 12
Now at that time, Herod the king, who was named Agrippa, laid hands on some who were in the church to wrongfully treat them. 2 And he killed Yaquv, the brother of Yukhanan, with a sword. 3 And when he saw that this pleased the Yehudaye, he proceeded to arrest Shimon Kipha also. And [these] were the days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread. 4 And he arrested him and threw him in prison and delivered him [to] sixteen soldiers to keep him, so that after the Petskha, he could deliver him to the people of the Yehudaye. 5 And while Shimon was kept in prison, steadfast prayer was offered to Alaha by the church on his behalf. 6 And in that night toward daybreak [when] he was going to deliver him up, while Shimon was asleep between two soldiers and was bound by two chains and others were keeping the doors of the prison, 7 an angel of Marya stood above him and a light shown in all the building. And he hit him on his side and woke him and said to him, “Rise up quickly.” And the chains fell from his hands. 8 And the angel said to him, “Gird up your loins and put on your sandals.” And he did so. And again he said to him, “Wrap yourself in your outer garment and follow me.” 9 And he went out and followed him, not knowing that what was occurring by way of the angel was true, for he supposed that he was seeing a vision.10 And after they had passed the first watch and the second, they came up to the gate of iron and it was opened to them of its own accord. And after they had gone out and passed one street, the angel left him. 11 Then Shimon realized [what happened] and said, “Now I know with truthfulness that Marya sent his angel and delivered me from the hand of Herod the king and from what the Yehudaye had planned against me.” 12 And when he understood, he came to the house of Maryam, the mother of Yukhanan who was called Mark, because many brothers were gathered and praying there. 13 And he knocked at the gate of the courtyard and a young girl, whose name [was] Rhoda, went out to answer him. 14 And she recognized the voice of Shimon and in her joy, she did not open the gate for him, but turned back quickly and said to them, “Behold, Shimon is standing at the gate of the courtyard.” 15 They said to her, “You are indeed confused.” Yet she was affirming that this was so. They said to her, “Perhaps it is his angel.” 16 And Shimon was knocking at the gate and they went out, saw him, and were amazed. 17 And he motioned with his hand to them to be quiet. And he entered and told them how Marya had brought him out of the prison. And he said to them, “Tell these [things] to Yaquv and the brothers.” And he left [and] went to another place. 18 And when it was morning, there was a great uproar among the soldiers about Shimon about what had happened to him. 19 And Herod, when he searched for him and could not find him, judged the keepers and commanded that they should die. And he went away from Yehuda and was in Caesarea. 20 And because he was angry at the Tsuraye and at the Tsaidanaye, they gathered together and came to him. And they persuaded Page 134 of 276
1

Blastus, the chamberlain of the king and they asked him for a peace treaty, because the supply of their country was from the kingdom of Herod. 21 And on a particular day, Herod was clothed in the clothing of the kingdom and sat on the judgment seat and was speaking to the crowd. 22 And all the people cried out and said, “These are the voices of a god and are not of men!” 23 And because he did not give glory to Alaha, immediately the angel of Marya struck him and he rotted with worms and died. 24 And the gospel of Alaha was preached and it increased. 25 And Bar-Naba and Shaul returned from Urishlem to Antioch, after they had completed their service. And they took with them Yukhanan who was called Mark.

ACTS CHAPTER 13
And there were in the church of Antioch, prophets and teachers, Bar-Naba, and Shimon, who was called Niger, and Lucius who was from the city [of] Cyrene, and Manayeil, a foster-brother of Herod the tetrarch, and Shaul. 2 And while they were fasting and making intercession to Alaha, the Rukha d’Qudsha said to them, “Appoint to me Shaul and Bar-Naba for the work [to] which I have called them.” 3 And after they had fasted and prayed, they laid a hand on them and sent them. 4 And being sent by the Rukha d’Qudsha, they went down to Seleucia and from there journeyed by sea up to Cyprus. 5 And after they entered the city [of] Salamis, they were preaching the word of our Lord in the synagogues of the Yehudaye. And Yukhanan was ministering to them. 6 And when they had traveled around all the island as far as the city [of] Paphos, they found a certain man, a Yehudaya sorcerer, who was a false prophet, whose name was Bar-Shuma. 7 This [man] attended a wise man, who was the proconsul and was called Sergius Paulus. And the proconsul called for Shaul and Bar-Naba and asked to hear the word of Alaha from them. 8 And this sorcerer, Bar-Shuma, whose name is interpreted Elymas, was standing against them, because he wanted to turn the proconsul away from the faith. 9 But Shaul, who was called Paul, was filled with the Rukha d’Qudsha and looked at him10 and said, “Oh full of all treacheries and all evil [things], son of the Accuser and enemy of all uprightness, will you not cease to pervert the straight ways of Marya? 11 And now the hand of Marya [is] on you and you will be blind and you will not see the sun for a time.” And immediately a thick darkness and blindness fell on him and he wandered around and looked for one who would take [him] by his hand. 12 And when the proconsul saw what had happened, he was amazed and believed in the teaching of Marya. 13 And Paul and Bar-Naba traveled by sea from the city [of] Paphos and came to Perga, a city of Pamphylia. And Yukhanan separated from them and went to Urishlem. 14 And they went away from Perga and came to Antioch, a city of Pisidia. And they entered the synagogue on a Shabtha day and sat down. 15 And after the Namusa and the prophets were read, the elders of the synagogue sent for them and said, “Men, our brothers, if you have a word of comfort, speak with the people.” 16 And Paul stood up and waved his hand and said, “Men, sons of Israyel and those who fear Alaha, listen. 17 The Alaha of this people chose our fathers and lifted up and multiplied them while they were settlers in the land of Egypt and with a strong arm he brought them out of it. 18 And he fed them in the wilderness [for] forty years. 19 And he destroyed seven nations in the land of Canaan and gave them their land for an inheritance. 20 And [for] four hundred and fifty years, he gave them judges until Shemuyel the prophet. 21 And then they asked for a king. And Alaha gave them Shaul, the son of Qish, a man from the tribe of Benyamin, [for] forty years. 22 And he removed him and raised up for them Dawid the king. And Page 135 of 276
1

he testified about him and said: I have found Dawid, the son of Ishai, [to be] a man according to my heart. He will do all of my desires. 23 From the seed of this [man], Alaha raised up for Israyel as was promised, Yeshue the redeemer. 24 And he sent Yukhanan before his coming to preach the immersion of repentance to all the people of Israyel. 25 And while Yukhanan was completing his ministry, he said, “Whom do you think that I am? I am not [he]. But behold, he follows me, the straps of whose sandals I am not worthy to loosen.” 26 Men, our brothers, sons of the family of Avraham and those with you who fear Alaha, to you is the word of life sent. 27 For those inhabitants of Urishlem and their rulers did not acknowledge him or even the writings of the prophets that are read on every Shabtha. But they condemned him and fulfilled those [things] that were written. 28 And although they could not find any cause for death, they asked [permission] of Pilate to kill him. 29 And after they had completed everything that was written about him, they took him down from the cross and laid him in a tomb. 30 But Alaha raised him from the dead. 31 And he appeared many days to those who had gone up with him from Galila to Urishlem. And they are now his witnesses to the people. 32 And also, behold, we declare to you that the promise that was to our fathers, 33 behold, Alaha has fulfilled it to us, their sons, that he raised up Yeshue, as it was written in the second Psalm: You are my son, this day I have fathered you. 34 And so Alaha raised him from the dead, so that he will not return again [and] see corruption as he said: I will give you the faithful grace of Dawid. 35 And again he said in another place: You will not allow your innocent [one] to see corruption. 36 For Dawid in his generation ministered the will of Alaha and slept and was added to his forefathers and saw corruption. 37 But this [man], whom Alaha raised, did not see corruption. 38 Therefore know, my brothers, that by this [man] forgiveness of sins is preached to you. 39 And by this [man], everyone who believes is justified from all that which you could not be justified by the Namusa of Mushe. 40 Beware, therefore, so that what is written in the prophets should not come on you: 41 See [you] despisers and be astonished and be destroyed, for I will work a work in your days which you will not believe, although someone tells you.” 42 And while they were leaving their presence, they begged them that on the next Shabtha they would speak to them these words. 43 And after the synagogue was dismissed, many Yehudaye followed them and also proselytes who feared Alaha. And they were speaking and persuading them to be follower[s] of the grace of Alaha. 44 And on the next Shabtha [day], the whole city was gathered to hear the word of Alaha. 45 And when the Yehudaye saw the large crowd, they were filled with envy and stood against the words that Paul spoke and they were blaspheming. 46 And Paul and Bar-Naba spoke boldly, “It was necessary that the word of Alaha be spoken to you first, but because you have pushed it away from you and have decided about yourselves that you are not worthy of eternal life, behold, we turn to the Gentiles. 47 For so our Lord commanded us, as it is written: I have set you [as] a light to the Gentiles that you would be for life to the ends of the earth.” 48 And when the Gentiles heard, they rejoiced and praised Alaha and those who were ordained to eternal life believed. 49 And the word of Marya was spoken in that whole place. 50 But the Yehudaye stirred up the rulers of the city and the rich women, those who feared Alaha with them and they instigated a persecution against Paul and against Bar-Naba. And they expelled them from their borders. 51 And after they had gone out, they shook off the dust of their feet against them and came to the city [of] Iconium. 52 And the disciples were filled with joy and the Rukha d’Qudsha.

And they came and entered the synagogue of the Yehudaye. And they spoke with them such that many of the Yehudaye and of the Greeks believed. 2 But the Yehudaye who were not persuaded stirred up the Gentiles to mistreat the brothers. 3 And they were there a long time and were boldly speaking about Marya. And he gave witness concerning the word of his grace by the signs and by the wonders that he was doing by their hands. 4 And all the multitude of the city was divided. Some of them were with the Yehudaye and some of them were following the apostles. 5 And there was an assault against them by the Gentiles and by the Yehudaye and their rulers to disgrace them and to stone them with rocks. 6 And after they knew [it], they went away and took refuge in the cities of Lycaonia, Lystra, and Derbe and the villages that surrounded them. 7 And they were preaching there. 8 And a certain man was sitting in the city [of] Lystra, who was hurt in his feet, lame from the womb of his mother, who had never walked. 9 This [man] heard Paul speak. And when Paul saw him and knew that he had faith to have life,10 he said to him in a loud voice, “To you, I say in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, stand up on your feet.” And he leaped up, stood, and walked. 11 And the crowd of people, when they saw what Paul had done, raised up their voice[s] in the language of the country and were saying, “The gods have put on the likeness of men and come down to us.” 12 And they called Bar-Naba, Jupiter, and Paul, Hermes, because he began the speaking. 13 And the priest of Jupiter, who was outside of the city, brought oxen and crowns to the gate of the courtyard where they lodged and wanted to sacrifice to them. 14 But Bar-Naba and Paul, when they heard, tore their garments and leaped up and went out to the crowd and cried out 15 and were saying, “Men, what are you doing? We also are men [having] feelings like you, who preach to you that you should turn from these idle [things] to the living Alaha, who made heaven and earth and the seas and all that is in them, 16 [This is] who in former generations allowed all the nations to go in their own ways, 17 although he did not leave himself without a testimony, in that he did for them good [things] from heaven and caused rain to fall on them and caused the fruit to mature in their seasons and filled their hearts with food and gladness.” 18 And while they were saying these [things], with difficulty did they restrain the people, so that no one sacrificed to them. 19 But the Yehudaye from Iconium and from Antioch came there and stirred up the people against them and they stoned Paul and dragged him outside of the city, because they supposed that he was dead. 20 And the disciples gathered about him and he rose up [and] entered the city. And on the next day, he went away from there with Bar-Naba and they went to the city [of] Derbe. 21 And while they were preaching to the citizens, they made many disciples. And they returned [and] came to the city [of] Lystra and to Iconium and to Antioch, 22 establishing the lives of the disciples and begging them to remain in the faith and telling them that it is necessary to enter the kingdom of Alaha with much trial. 23 And they ordained elders for them in every church, while they fasted with them and prayed and commended them to our Lord in whom they believed. 24 And after they had traveled around in the region of Pisidia, they came to Pamphylia. 25 And after they had spoken the word of Marya in the city [of] Perga, they went down to Attalia. 26 And from there they journeyed by sea and came to Antioch, because from there they had been commended to the grace of Marya for the work that they had accomplished. 27 And after they had gathered the whole church, they were narrating everything that Alaha had done with them and that he had opened a door of faith to the Gentiles. 28 And they were there a long time with the disciples.

Page 137 of 276

And men came down from Yehuda and were teaching the brothers, [saying] “Unless you are circumcised according to the custom of the Namusa, you are not able to have life.” 2 And Paul and Bar-Naba had much strife and dispute with them. And it happened that they sent up Paul and Bar-Naba and others with them to the apostles and elders who were in Urishlem, because of this dispute. 3 And the church escorted [and] sent them. And they were traveling in all of Phoenicia and also among the Shamraye, narrating about the conversion of the Gentiles and causing great joy to all the brothers. 4 And when they came to Urishlem, they were received by the church and by the apostles and by the elders and they narrated to them all that Alaha had done with them. 5 And some stood up, those from the doctrine of the Perishye who had believed, and they were saying, “It is necessary for you to circumcise them and you should command them to keep the Namusa of Mushe.” 6 And the apostles and elders were gathered to look into this matter. 7 And after there had been much debate, Shimon stood up and said to them, “Men, our brothers, you know that from the first days, by my mouth, Alaha chose that the Gentiles should hear the word of the gospel and believe. 8 And Alaha, who knows what is in hearts, gave testimony concerning them and gave them the Rukha d’Qudsha as [he did] to us. 9 And he made no distinction between us and them, because he cleansed their hearts by faith.10 And now, why do you tempt Alaha as you place a yoke on the necks of these disciples, which neither our fathers nor we were able to bear? 11 But by the grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, we believe to have life, as they [do].” 12 And the whole assembly was silent and listened to Paul and Bar-Naba who were narrating everything Alaha had done by their hands, signs and mighty works among the Gentiles. 13 And after they were silent, Yaquv stood up and said, “Men, our brothers, hear me. 14 Shimon narrated to you how Alaha began to choose from the Gentiles a people for his name. 15 And to this the words of the prophets agree, as it is written: 16 After these [things] I will return and set up the tabernacle of Dawid which has fallen and I will rebuild what has fallen of it and I will raise it up, 17 so that the remnant of men will seek Marya, and all the Gentiles, on whom my name is called, says Marya who did all these [things]. 18 The works of Alaha are known from old. 19 Because of this, I say, “They should not harass those have turned to Alaha from the Gentiles.” 20 But let it be sent to them that they should stay away from the uncleanness of that which is sacrificed and from fornication and from that which is strangled and from blood. 21 For Mushe, from the first generations, had preachers in the synagogues, in every city, who read him on every Shabtha.” 22 Then the apostles and elders, with all the church, chose men from them and sent [them] to Antioch, with Paul and Bar-Naba, Yehudah who was called Bar-Shaba, and Shilah, men who were chiefs among the brothers. 23 And they wrote a letter by their hands, [saying] thus, “The apostles and elders and brothers, to those who are in Antioch and in Suriya and in Cilicia, brothers who are from the Gentiles, peace. 24 It has been heard by us that men from us have gone out and disturbed you with words and have upset your souls, saying that you should be circumcised and keep the Namusa, those [things] that we did not command them. 25 Because of this, all of us, being gathered together, purposed and chose men and sent [them] to you, with our beloved Paul and Bar-Naba 26 (men who have committed themselves on behalf of the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha). 27 And we have sent with them Yehudah and Shilah, who will tell you these same [things] by word: 28 For it was the will of the Rukha d’Qudsha and also of us that a greater burden should not be placed on you, outside of those [things] that are necessary, 29 that you should stay away from that which is sacrificed and from blood and from [that which] is strangled and from fornication, that as you keep yourselves from these [things], you will [do] Page 138 of 276

well. Be steadfast in our Lord.” 30 And those who were sent came to Antioch and gathered all the people and delivered the letter. 31 And after they had read [it], they rejoiced and were comforted. 32 And with an abundance of the word Yehudah and Shilah strengthened the brothers and established those of the household, because they also were prophets. 33 And after they were there a while, the brothers dismissed them in peace to the apostles. 34 Nevertheless, it was the will of Shilah to remain there. 35 Now Paul and Bar-Naba remained in Antioch and were teaching and preaching the word of Alaha with many others. 36 And after [some] days, Paul said to Bar-Naba, “Let us return and visit the brothers who are in every city in which we have preached the word of Alaha and let us see what they are doing.” 37 And Bar-Naba wanted to take Yukhanan, who was called Mark. 38 But Paul did not want to take him with them, because he had left them while they were in Pamphylia and had not gone with them. 39 Because of this contention, they separated from each other and Bar-Naba took Mark and journeyed by sea and traveled to Cyprus. 40 Now Paul chose Shilah and went away, being commended by the brothers to the grace of Alaha. 41 And he traveled in Suriya and in Cilicia and established the churches.

ACTS CHAPTER 16
And he arrived at the city [of] Derbe and of Lystra. And there was a certain disciple there, whose name [was] Timothy, the son of a certain faithful Yehudaya woman and his father was an Armaya. 2 And all the disciples who were from Lystra and from Iconium gave testimony concerning him. 3 Paul wanted to take this [man] with him, so he took [and] circumcised him because of the Yehudaye that were in the place, for all of them knew his father was an Armaya. 4 And while they went among the cities, they were preaching and teaching them to be keeping the commandments which the apostles and elders who were in Urishlem had written. 5 Yet the churches were established in faith and increased in number every day. 6 And they walked in the regions of Phrygia and of Galatia and the Rukha d’Qudsha hindered them from speaking the word of Alaha in Asia. 7 And after they had come to the region [of] Mysia, they wanted to go from there to Bithynia, yet the Rukha d’Yeshue did not permit them. 8 And after they had gone out from Mysia, they went down to the region [of] Troas. 9 And in a vision during the night, there appeared to Paul (as [it were]) a certain Macedonian man who was standing and begging him, saying, “Come to Macedonia and help us.”10 And after Paul had seen this vision, immediately we wanted to leave for Macedonia, because we understood that our Lord had called us to preach to them. 11 And we traveled from Troas and headed straight for Samothracia and from there on the next day, we came to the city [of] Neapolis, 12 and from there to Philippi, which is the chief [city] of Macedonia and is a colony. And we were in that city certain days. 13 And we went out on the day of the Shabtha outside of the gate of the city by the edge of a river, because a house of prayer was seen there. And after we were seated, we were speaking with the women who were gathered there. 14 And a certain woman, a seller of purple cloth, who feared Alaha [was there]. Her name was Lydia, from the city [of] Thyatira. Our Lord opened the heart of this [woman] and she heard what Paul said. 15 And she was immersed, she and her household. And she begged us and was saying, “If you are truly confident that I believe in our Lord, come, lodge in my house.” And she constrained us much. 16 And it happened that while we were going to the house of prayer, a certain young woman met us who had a spirit of divinations. And she earned a large profit for her masters by the divination that she was divining. 17 And she was Page 139 of 276
1

following Paul and us and was crying out and saying, “These men are the servants of the Most High Alaha and are declaring to you the way of life.” 18 And so she did many days. And Paul was provoked and said to that spirit, “I command you in the name of Yeshue-Meshikha to come out of her. And immediately it went away. 19 And when her masters saw that the hope of their profit had gone out of her, they arrested Paul and Shilah and dragged [and] brought them to the marketplace. 20 And they brought them to the magistrates and to the rulers of the city and were saying, “These men are troubling our city, because they are Yehudaye 21 and are preaching to us customs that are not permitted for us to receive and to do because we are Romans.” 22 And a large crowd gathered against them. Then the magistrates tore their garments and commanded to beat them. 23 And after they had beaten them much, they threw them into prison and commanded the keeper of the prison to keep them carefully. 24 Now when he received this command, he brought [them] in [and] confined them in the inner room of the prison and fastened their feet in stocks. 25 And in the middle of the night, Paul and Shilah were praying and praising Alaha and the prisoners were listening to them. 26 And suddenly, there was a great earthquake and the foundations of the prison were shaken and immediately, all the doors were opened and the fastenings of all were released. 27 And when the keeper of the prison was awakened and saw that the doors of the prison were opened, he took a sword and wanted to kill himself, because he thought that the prisoners had fled. 28 And Paul called to him with a loud voice and said to him, “Do not do to yourself anything evil, because all of us are here.” 29 And he lit a lamp for himself and sprang up and entered, trembling, and fell at the feet of Paul and of Shilah. 30 And he brought them outside and said to them, “My lords, what is necessary for me to do, so that I may have life?” 31 And they said to him, “Believe in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and you will have life, you and your house.” 32 And they spoke to him the word of Marya and to all his household. 33 And immediately in the night, he took [and] washed them of their wounds and immediately he was immersed, he and all his household. 34 And he took [and] brought them up to his house and set a table for them and was rejoicing, he and his household, in the faith of Alaha. 35 And when it was morning, the magistrates sent sergeants to say to the ruler of the prisoners, “Release those men.” 36 And when the ruler of the prison heard about [it], he told Paul this message, “The magistrates have sent [a message] that you should be released, and now leave, go in peace.” 37 Paul said to him, “They have beaten Roman men without fault before the eye of the whole world and have put [them] into prison and now secretly do they send us away? Indeed not! Rather, they should come [and] send us away.” 38 And the sergeants went and told the magistrates these words that were said to them. And when they heard that they were Romans, they were afraid. 39 And they came to them and begged them to go out and to leave the city. 40 And after they had gone out of the prison, they entered [the house of] Lydia and saw the brothers there and comforted them and left.

ACTS CHAPTER 17
And they passed by the cities [of] Amphipolis and Apollonia and came to Thessalonica, where there was a synagogue of the Yehudaye. 2 And Paul, as he was accustomed, went in to them and [for] three Shabtha(s), spoke with them from the scriptures, 3 explaining and demonstrating that Meshikha had to suffer and to rise from the dead and [saying], “This Yeshue is Meshikha whom I declare to you.” 4 And some of them believed and followed Paul and Shilah Page 140 of 276

and many of the Greeks who feared Alaha and also notable women, not a few, [followed Paul]. 5 And the Yehudaye were jealous and gathered to themselves evil men from the streets of the city and formed a large mob and disturbed the city and came and assaulted the house of Jason and wanted to take them from there and deliver them to the mob. 6 And when they did not find them there, they dragged away Jason and the brothers who were there and brought them to the rulers of the city, crying, “These are they who have disturbed the whole region and behold, they have come here also. 7 And this is Jason, their host, and all of these stand against the commandments of Caesar, saying, “There is another king, Yeshue.”“ 8 And the rulers of the city and all of the people were troubled after they had heard these [things]. 9 And they took bail from Jason and also from the brothers and then released them.10 Now the brothers immediately in the night sent Paul and Shilah to the city [of] Berea. And when they had come there, they entered the synagogue of the Yehudaye. 11 For those Yehudaye who were there were nobler than those Yehudaye in Thessalonica. And they gladly heard the word from them every day, discerning from the scriptures whether these [things] were so. 12 And many of them believed and likewise also from the Greeks, many men and notable women [believed]. 13 And when those Yehudaye who were from Thessalonica knew that the word of Alaha was preached by Paul in the city [of] Berea, they came there also and did not cease to stir up and to trouble the people. 14 And the brothers sent Paul away to go down to the sea and Shilah and Timothy remained in that city. 15 And those who escorted Paul went with him as far as the city [of] Athens. And when they went away from his presence, they took a letter from him to Shilah and Timothy that they should travel to him quickly. 16 Now Paul, while waiting in Athens, was grieved in his spirit, when he saw that the whole city was full of idols. 17 And he spoke in the synagogue with the Yehudaye and with those who feared Alaha and in the marketplace with those who were present every day. 18 And also philosophers, who were from the teaching of Epicurus and others who were called Stoics, were debating with him. And every one of them were saying, “What does this babbler want?” And others were saying, “He preaches strange gods,” because he was preaching Yeshue and his resurrection to them. 19 And they arrested him and brought him to the judgment hall that was called Areopagus, saying to him, “Can we know what this new teaching is that you preach? 20 For you are sowing strange words in our hearing and we want to know what these [things] are.” 21 Now all the Athenians and those strangers who came there did not care for anything else, except to say and to hear something new. 22 And as Paul stood in the Areopagus, he said, “Men, Athenians, I see that in all [things] you are abundant in the worship of demons. 23 For while I was traveling around and seeing the place of your worship, I found a certain altar on which was inscribed, “The unknown god.” Therefore, although you do not know whom you worship, I will preach about this one to you. 24 For the Alaha, who made the world and all that is in it and is the Lord of heaven and of earth, does not live in temples that hands have made. 25 And he is not served by the hands of men and he does not lack in anything, because he has given life and soul to every man. 26 And from one blood he made the whole world of men to be living on the face of all the earth. And he appointed the seasons by his commandment and set boundaries for the habitation of men, 27 that they would seek and inquire after Alaha and by his creations find him, because he is also not far from all of us. 28 For it is in him we live and move and are, as also one of the wise [men] who is with you said, “From him is our origin.” 29 Therefore, men, because our origin is from Alaha, we ought not to think that the divine is likened to gold or to silver or to stone that is engraved by the workmanship and by the knowledge of man. 30 For Alaha has caused the times of ignorance to pass. And in this time he has commanded all men that every man in every place should repent, 31 because he has established a day in which he is going to Page 141 of 276

judge the whole earth with justice by way of the man whom he appointed. and he has caused everyone to turn to his faith, in that he raised him from the dead.” 32 And when they heard of the resurrection that is from the dead, some of them mocked, and some of them said, “At another time we will hear you about this.” 33 And so Paul went away from among them. 34 And some of them followed after him and believed. And one of them was Dionysius of the judges of Areopagus, and a certain woman whose name was Damaris, and others with them.

ACTS CHAPTER 18
And after Paul went away from Athens, he came to Corinth. 2 And he found there a certain Yehudaya man whose name was Aquila, who was from the region [of] Pontus, who in that time had come from the region of Italy, he and Priscilla his wife, because Claudius Caesar had commanded all the Yehudaye to leave Rome. And he approached them 3 and because he was their fellow-craftsman, he lodged with them and was working with them. And by their craft, they were makers of tent cloth. 4 And he spoke in the synagogue on every Shabtha and persuaded the Yehudaye and heathens. 5 And after Shilah and Timothy had come from Macedonia, Paul was pressured in the word because the Yehudaye were opposing him and blaspheming while he was witnessing to them that Yeshue was Meshikha. 6 And he shook his garments and said to them, “From now on, I am clean. I am going to the Gentiles.” 7 And he went away from there and entered the house of a man whose name [was] Titus, who feared Alaha. And his house was attached to the synagogue. 8 And Crispus, the ruler of the synagogue, believed in our Lord, he and all his household. And many Corinthians heard and believed in Alaha and were immersed. 9 And Marya said to Paul in a vision, “Do not fear, but speak and do not keep silent,10 because I am with you, and no man is able to harm you, and I have many people in this city.” 11 And he stayed in Corinth [for] one year and six months and taught them the word of Alaha. 12 And when Gallio was proconsul of Achaia, the Yehudaye were gathered together against Paul. And they brought him before the judgment seat, 13 saying, “This [man] persuades men to be fearing Alaha, beyond the Namusa.” 14 And while Paul was requesting to open his mouth and to speak, Gallio said to the Yehudaye, “If you were accusing about a matter of evil or of deceit or of hatred, oh Yehudaye, of necessity I would receive you. 15 But if the questions are about word[s] and about names and about your Namusa, you should understand [them] among yourselves, for I do not want to be a judge of these issues.” 16 And he expelled them from his judgment seat. 17 And all the heathens arrested Sosthenes, an elder of the synagogue, and beat him before the judgment seat. And Gallio overlooked these [things]. 18 And after Paul was there many days, he gave a farewell to the brothers and journeyed by sea to go to Suriya. And Priscilla and Aquila went with him, after he had shaved his head in Cenchrea, because a vow was vowed by him. 19 And they arrived at Ephesus. And Paul entered the synagogue and was speaking with the Yehudaye. 20 And they begged him to extend the time with them, yet he was not persuaded, 21 saying, “It is right for me certainly, that I should keep the feast that is coming in Urishlem. But if Alaha wills, I will return again to you.” And he left Aquila and Priscilla in Ephesus. 22 And he journeyed by sea and came to Caesarea. And he went up and greeted the clergy and went to Antioch. 23 And after he was there some days, he went away and traveled around in order in the region of Galatia and of Phrygia, establishing all the disciples. 24 And a certain man whose name was Apollos, a Yehudaya who was a native of Alexandria and was trained in speech and observant in the Page 142 of 276
1

scriptures, came to Ephesus. 25 This [man] was instructed in the way of Marya and was spiritually fervent and was speaking and teaching fully about Yeshue, while not knowing anything except the immersion of Yukhanan. 26 And he began to speak boldly in the synagogue. And when Aquila and Priscilla heard him, they brought him to their house and fully showed him the way of Marya. 27 And when he wanted to go to Achaia, the brothers encouraged him and wrote to the disciples to receive him. And after he had gone, through grace, he greatly aided all the believers, 28 for he debated mightily against the Yehudaye before the crowds, showing from the scriptures concerning Yeshue, that he is Meshikha.

ACTS CHAPTER 19
And while Apollos was in Corinth, Paul traveled around in the upper regions and came to Ephesus. And he asked the disciples whom he found there, 2 “Did you receive the Rukha d’Qudsha when you believed?” They answered and said to him, “We have not even heard if there is a Rukha d’Qudsha.” 3 He said to them, “Then into what were you immersed?” They said, “Into the immersion of Yukhanan.” 4 Paul said to them, “Yukhanan immersed the people with the immersion of repentance, telling [them] to believe in him who would follow him, who is Yeshue-Meshikha.” 5 And after they heard these [things], they were immersed in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 6 And Paul laid a hand on them and the Rukha d’Qudsha came on them and they spoke in different languages and prophesied. 7 And all the men were twelve. 8 And Paul entered the synagogue and spoke boldly [for] three months and was persuading [them] about the kingdom of Alaha. 9 And some of them were hardened and were striving against and reviling the way of Alaha before the assembly of the Gentiles. Then Paul distanced [himself] and separated the disciples from them. And every day he was speaking to them in the school of a man whose name [was] Tyrannus.10 And this continued [for] two years, until all who lived in Asia, Yehudaye and Armaye, heard the word of Marya. 11 And Alaha was doing great miracles by the hand of Paul, 12 so that even from the coats that were on his body, handkerchiefs or pieces of cloth were brought and placed on the sick and the sicknesses went away from them and demons also went out. 13 And some Yehudaye, who traveled about and exorcised demons, were also wanting to exorcise in the name of our Lord Yeshue those who had unclean spirits, saying, “We exorcise you in the name of the Yeshue whom Paul preaches.” 14 And there were seven sons of a certain Yehudaya man, a chief priest whose name was Sceva, who were doing this. 15 And that wicked demon answered and said to them, “Yeshue I know and Paul I know, but who are you?” 16 And that man who had the evil spirit leaped on them and overcame them and cast them down. And being naked and wounded, they fled from that house. 17 And this was known by all the Yehudaye and Armaye who lived in Ephesus. And fear fell on all of them and the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha was lifted up. 18 And many of those who believed came and declared their faults and confessed what they had done. 19 And many sorcerers also gathered their books and brought [and] burned them before everyone. And they counted their price and the silver amounted to five thousand [pieces]. 20 And so with great power the faith of Alaha grew strong and increased. 21 And after these [things] had been accomplished, Paul set in his mind to travel around in all of Macedonia and in Achaia and [then] to go to Urishlem. And he said, “When I have gone there, it is right for me to also see Rome.” 22 And he sent two men from those who ministered to him to Macedonia, Timothy and Erastus. But he remained a time in Asia. 23 And Page 143 of 276
1

during that time a great uproar occurred about the way of Alaha. 24 And there was there a certain worker of silver, whose name was Demetrius who was making shrines of silver for Artemis and he brought great profit to his fellow-craftsmen. 25 This [man] gathered all his fellow-craftsmen and those who worked with them and said to them, “Men, you know that all our trade is from this occupation. 26 And you have also heard and you have seen that this Paul has persuaded and turned away, not only the citizens of Ephesus, but also a multitude of all of Asia, saying that those are not gods that are made by the hands of men. 27 And not only this business is being shamed and brought to nothing, but also the temple of the great goddess Artemis is counted as nothing, and also the goddess, whom all Asia and all the Gentiles worship, is despised.” 28 And when they heard these [things], they were filled with fury and cried out and said, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians.” 29 And the whole city was stirred up. And they ran together and went to the theater. And they seized [and] took along with them, Gaius and Aristarchus, Macedonian men, the companions of Paul. 30 And Paul wanted to enter the theater, yet the disciples prevented him. 31 And also the chiefs of Asia, because they were his friends, sent [and] begged him not to give up his life to enter the theater. 32 And the crowds that were in the theater were very confused and were crying one thing and [then] another, for many of them did not know why they had been gathered. 33 And the people of the Yehudaye who were there put forward a Yehudaya man of them whose name was Alexander. And when he stood up, he waved his hand and wanted to make a defense to the people. 34 And knowing that he was a Yehudaya, all of them cried out with one voice [for] about two hours, “Great is Artemis of the Ephesians.” 35 And the ruler of the city quieted them, saying, “Men, Ephesians, for who are the men who do not know that the city of the Ephesians is the priestess of the great Artemis and her image that came down from heaven? 36 Therefore, because no one can speak against this, you ought to be quiet and not do anything in haste, 37 for you have brought these men [here], although they have not stolen from the temples, nor reviled our goddess. 38 Now if this Demetrius and his fellow-craftsmen have a controversy with someone, behold, the proconsul [is] in the city. They are craftsmen, [so] they should go near and judge one with the other. 39 And if you are seeking something else, let it be settled in a place that is given by the law for an assembly, 40 because now we also stand in danger of being accused as troublemakers, because we are not able to give a reason for the crowd of this day, because we have been assembled needlessly and made an uproar without a cause.” 41 And after he had said these [things], he dismissed the crowd.

ACTS CHAPTER 20
And after the uproar had subsided, Paul called for the disciples and comforted them and kissed them and left [and] went to Macedonia. 2 And when he had gone about those regions and had comforted them with many words, he came to the country [of] Greece. 3 And he was there [for] three months. But the Yehudaye planned treachery against him when he was about to go to Suriya and he thought that he should return to Macedonia. 4 And Sopater, who was from the city [of] Berea, and Aristarchus and Secundus, who were of the Thessalonians, and Trophimus and Gaius, who were from the city [of] Derbe, and Timothy, who was from Lystra, and Tychicus and Trophimus from Asia went away with him as far as Asia. 5 These went on before us and waited for us at Troas. 6 But we left Philippi, a city of the Macedonians, after the days of the Feast of Unleavened Bread, and traveled by sea and arrived at Troas in five days. And we were there [for] Page 144 of 276
1

seven days. 7 And on the first day of the week when we were assembled to break [the bread of] communion, Paul spoke with them, because the next day he was going to leave and he continued to speak until the middle of the night. 8 And there were many lamps burning there in that upper room where we were gathered. 9 And a certain young man, whose name was Eutychus, was sitting in a window and listening. And he sunk into a deep sleep while Paul was continuing the speech, and in his sleep he fell from the third loft and was taken up as dead.10 And Paul went down [and] fell on him and embraced him. And he said, “Do not be troubled, because his life is in him.” 11 Now when he had gone [back] up, he broke bread and ate and continued speaking until the morning dawned. And then he left to go on by land. 12 And they led out the young man alive and rejoiced in him greatly. 13 And we went down to the ship and sailed to the port of Assos, because there we had arranged to meet Paul. For so he had commanded us, when he had gone on by land. 14 Now when we met him at Assos, we boarded the ship and came to Mitylene. 15 And from there, the next day we sailed toward the island [of] Chios. And again, the next day we came to Samos and remained at Trogyllium. And the next day we came to Miletus, 16 for Paul was determined to pass by Ephesus, lest he should be delayed there, because he was hurrying, so that if possible, he would celebrate the day of Pentecost in Urishlem. 17 And from Miletus, he sent to bring the elders of the church at Ephesus. 18 And when they came to him, he said to them, “You know, since the first day that I entered Asia, how I was with you all the time, 19 as I was serving Alaha with great meekness and with tears and in the trials that came on me by the treacheries of the Yehudaye. 20 And I did not avoid what was profitable for your lives to preach to you and teach in the streets and in houses, 21 witnessing to the Yehudaye and to the Armaye concerning repentance towards Alaha and the faith that is in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 22 And now I am bound by the Rukha and I am traveling to Urishlem and I do not know what will happen to me in it. 23 Nevertheless, the Rukha d’Qudsha witnesses in every city to me and has said, “Bonds and trials are prepared for you.” 24 But I have not counted my life [as] anything, so that I may complete my course and the ministry that I have received from our Lord Yeshue, that I may witness concerning the gospel of the grace of Alaha. 25 And now I know that you will not see my face again, all of you for whom I have traveled [and] preached the kingdom. 26 And because of this, I witness to you this very day that I am pure from the blood of all of you. 27 For I have not refused to make known to you all the will of Alaha. 28 Watch, therefore, over yourselves and over all the flock over which the Rukha d’Qudsha has appointed you overseers, to feed the church of Meshikha that he purchased with his blood. 29 I know that after I am gone fierce wolves will enter among you without mercy on the flock. 30 And also, from yourselves [there] will rise up men speaking perverse [things] to turn away the disciples to follow them. 31 Because of this, you should be vigilant and remember that [for] three years I did not stop, by night and by day, admonishing each one of you with tears. 32 And now I commend you to Alaha and to the word of his grace that is able to build you up and to give you an inheritance with all the holy [ones]. 33 Silver or gold or garments I have not desired. 34 And you know that these hands ministered to my necessity and to those who were with me. 35 And I demonstrated everything to you, that so it is right to labor and to care for those who are weak and to remember the words of our Lord Yeshue, because he said, “He who gives is more blessed than he who receives.”“ 36 And when he said these [things], he kneeled down and prayed and everyone with him. 37 And there was great weeping among all of them and they embraced him and kissed him. 38 But they were most anguished about that word that he said, that they were not going to see his face again. And they accompanied him as far as the ship.

Page 145 of 276

ACTS CHAPTER 21
And we separated from them and journeyed directly to the island [of] Coos. And the next day we came to Rhodes and from there to Patara. 2 And we found a ship there that was going to Phoenicia and we boarded it and proceeded. 3 And we came as far as the island [of] Cyprus and passed it by on the left hand and came to Suriya. And from there we arrived at Tsur, for there the ship was to unload her cargo. 4 And finding disciples there, we remained with them seven days and they were saying every day to Paul spiritually that he should not go to Urishlem. 5 And after those days, we left to go on the journey and they all accompanied us, with their wives and their children, until [we were] outside of the city. Then they kneeled down by the shore of the sea and prayed. 6 And we kissed each other and we boarded the ship and they returned to their houses. 7 Now we sailed from Tsur and came to the city [of] Accho. And we greeted the brothers there and lodged with them one day. 8 And on the next day we left and came to Caesarea. And we entered [and] lodged in the house of Philip the evangelist, who was [one] of the seven. 9 And he had four unmarried daughters who prophesied.10 And while we were there many days, a certain prophet came down from Yehuda, whose name was Agabus. 11 And he came in to us and took the girdle of the loins of Paul and bound his own feet and his hands and said, “Thus says the Rukha d’Qudsha, so the Yehudaye in Urishlem will bind the man [who is] the owner of this girdle and will deliver him into the hands of the Gentiles.” 12 And when we heard these words, we and the residents begged him that he would not go to Urishlem. 13 Then Paul answered and said, “What are you doing, that you are weeping and breaking my heart? For I am ready not to be bound only, but also to die in Urishlem for the name of our Lord Yeshue.” 14 And when he was not persuaded by us, we ceased and we said that the will of our Lord will happen. 15 And after those days, we prepared ourselves and went up to Urishlem. 16 And some of the disciples from Caesarea came with us, bringing with them a brother, one of the first disciples whose name was Mnason and was from Cyprus, so that he might receive us in his house. 17 And when we arrived at Urishlem, the brothers received us gladly. 18 And the next day we went in with Paul to Yaquv, as all of the elders were with him. 19 And we greeted them and Paul was narrating to them in order all that Alaha had done among the Gentiles by his ministry. 20 And after they heard, they praised Alaha and said to him, “Our brother, you see how many thousands there are in Yehuda who have believed and all of these are zealots of the Namusa. 21 Now it was said to them about you, that you are teaching that all of the Yehudaye who are with the Gentiles should break away from Mushe, saying that they should not circumcise their children and they should not walk in the customs of the Namusa. 22 Therefore, because they have heard that you have come here, 23 do what we tell you. We have four men who have made a vow to be purified. 24 Lead them and go, be purified with them and pay the expenses with them, as they will shave their heads. And it will be known to everyone that what is said about you is false and [that] you fulfill and keep the Namusa. 25 Now about those who believed of the Gentiles, we have written that they should be keeping themselves away from that which is sacrificed and from fornication and from [that which] is strangled and from blood.” 26 Then Paul took these men the next day and was purified with them. And he entered [and] went into the temple, informing them [of] the completion of the days of purification, until the offering of each one of them was offered. 27 And when the seventh day arrived, the Yehudaye who were from Asia saw him in the temple and incited all of the people against him and they laid hands on him, 28 crying out and saying, “Men of Israyel, help! Page 146 of 276
1

This is the man who is against our own people, teaching in every location against the Namusa and against this place. And he has also brought Armaye into the temple and defiled this holy place.” 29 For previously they had seen Trophimus, an Ephesian, with him in the city, and were supposing that he had entered the temple with Paul. 30 And the city was stirred up and all of the people were gathered. And they took hold of Paul and dragged him outside of the temple and immediately the gates were shut. 31 And as the crowd was seeking to kill him, it was reported to the chiliarch of the military guard that all of the city was stirred up. 32 And immediately he took a centurion and many soldiers and they ran to them. And when they saw the chiliarch and the soldiers, they stopped beating Paul. 33 And the chiliarch came toward him and held him and commanded that they should bind him with two chains. And he asked about him, who he was and what he had done. 34 And some of the mob cried out various [things] about him, yet because of their noise, he was not able to know what was the truth. And he commanded that they should conduct him to the military camp. 35 And when Paul reached the stairs, the soldiers carried him because of the violence of the people. 36 For many people followed him and they cried out and were saying, “Take him away!” 37 And when he arrived at the entrance to the military camp, Paul said to the chiliarch, “Will you allow me to speak with you?” And he said to him, “Do you know Greek? 38 Are you not that Egyptian, who before these days stirred up and led out to the wilderness four thousand men, doers of evil [things]?” 39 Paul said to him, “I am a Yehudaya man from Tarsus, the notable city of Cilicia in which I was born. I beg you [to] allow me to speak to the people.” 40 And when he allowed him, Paul stood on the stairs and was motioning to them with his hand. And when they quieted down, he spoke with them in Evraith and said to them,

ACTS CHAPTER 22
“Brothers and fathers, hear a defense that is to you.” 2 And when they heard that he was speaking with them in Evraith, they quieted down more. And he said to them, 3 “I am a Yehudaya man and I was born in Tarsus of Cilicia, but I was educated in this city beside the feet of Gamaliel and was instructed perfectly in the Namusa of our fathers. And I was zealous of Alaha, even as also all of you are. 4 And I persecuted this way to the death, binding and delivering men and women to prison. 5 As the chief priests and all of the elders witness about me, from them I received letters to go to the brothers that are in Damascus, that I should also bring those who were there to Urishlem, being bound and to receive punishment. 6 And as I was traveling and began to approach Damascus in the middle of the day, suddenly a great light from heaven shone on me. 7 And I fell on the ground and I heard a voice that said to me, “Shaul, Shaul, why are you persecuting me?” 8 And I answered and said, “Who are you, my Lord?” And he said to me, “I am Yeshue, the Natsraya, whom you are persecuting.” 9 And the men who were with me saw the light, but they did not hear the voice that was speaking with me.10 And I said, “What should I do, my Lord?” And our Lord said to me, “Stand up [and] go to Damascus and there it will be told you about everything that is commanded you to do.” 11 And when I did not see because of the glory of that light, those who were with me took hold of my hands and I entered Damascus. 12 And a certain man, Khananya, upright in the Namusa, as all of the Yehudaye there witnessed about him, 13 came to me and said to me, “Shaul, my brother, open your eyes!” And immediately my eyes were opened and I looked at him. 14 And he said to me, “The Alaha of our Page 147 of 276
1

fathers has appointed you to know his will and to see the Just [one] and to hear the voice from his mouth. 15 And you will be a witness for him to all men about all that you have seen and heard. 16 And now, why are you wasting time? Rise up [and] be immersed and be cleansed from your sins, as you call on his name.” 17 And I returned [and] came here to Urishlem and I prayed in the temple. 18 And I saw in a vision as he said to me, “Hurry and go out from Urishlem, because they will not receive your witness concerning me.” 19 And I said, “My Lord, they also know that I delivered to prison and beat those who believed in you in all our synagogues. 20 And when the blood of Stephen your witness was shed, I was also standing with them. And I approved the desire of the murderers and kept the garments of those who were stoning him.” 21 And he said to me, “Go, for I am sending you to a far place to preach to the Gentiles.”“ 22 And after they had listened to Paul up to this word, they raised their voice[s] and cried out, “This [one] should be cut off from the earth, for thus it is not right for him to live!” 23 And as they were calling out and putting off their garments and throwing dust up into the sky, 24 the chiliarch commanded that they should carry him to the military camp and commanded that he should be interrogated with stripes, so that he would know for what cause they cried out against him. 25 And while they stretched him with leather straps, Paul said to the centurion who was standing over him, “Is it permissible for you to beat a Roman man who is not condemned?” 26 And when the centurion heard [this], he came near to the chiliarch and said to him, “What are you doing? For this man is a Roman.” 27 And the chiliarch came near to him and said to him, “Tell me, are you a Roman?” And he said to him, “Yes.” 28 And the chiliarch answered and said, “I obtained Roman citizenship with much money.” Paul said to him, “But I was even born in it.” 29 And immediately those who were wanting to beat him went away from him and the chiliarch was afraid after he learned that he was a Roman, because he had bound him. 30 And the next day, he desired to know truly, what the accusation was that the Yehudaye were bringing against him. And he released him and commanded that the chief priests and all the assembly of their rulers should come. And he took Paul and brought [him] down [and] put him forward among them.

ACTS CHAPTER 23
And when Paul looked at their assembly, he said, “Men, my brothers, in all good conscience, I have conducted myself before Alaha up to this day.” 2 And Khananya, the priest, commanded those who were standing by his side to strike Paul on his mouth. 3 And Paul said to him, “Alaha is going to strike you, whitened wall! And are you sitting [and] judging me according to the Namusa when you are transgressing the Namusa and commanding that they should strike me?” 4 And those who were standing there said to him, “Are you speaking evil of the priest of Alaha?” 5 Paul said to them, “I did not know, my brothers, that he was a priest, for it is written: You should not curse the leader of your people. 6 And after Paul knew that some of the people were of the Zaduqaye and some [were] of the Perishye, he cried out in the assembly, “Men, my brothers, I am a Perishya, the son of Perishye and concerning the hope of the resurrection of the dead, I am being judged.” 7 And when he had said this, the Perishye and Zaduqaye fell on one another and the people were divided. 8 For the Zaduqaye said that there was no resurrection and no angels and no spirit, but the Perishye professed all of these. 9 And there was a loud cry and some Saphrey of the side of the Perishye rose up and were striving with them and said, “We have not found anything that is evil in this man. Now if a spirit or an angel Page 148 of 276

has spoken with him, what is in this?”10 And as there was a huge uproar among them, the chiliarch was afraid lest they should tear Paul apart. And he sent Romans to go to seize him in the middle of them and bring him to the military camp. 11 And when it was night, our Lord appeared to Paul and said to him, “Be strengthened, because as you have witnessed about me in Urishlem, so you are also going to witness in Rome.” 12 And when it was daybreak, men from the Yehudaye were assembled and they vowed to themselves that they would neither eat nor drink until they had killed Paul. 13 Now there were more than forty men who had confirmed this pact by oaths. 14 And they approached the priests and the elders and said, “We have vowed a vow to ourselves that we will taste nothing, until we have killed Paul. 15 And now you and the rulers of the synagogue request of the chiliarch, that he should bring him to you as if you were seeking to truly examine his circumstance, and we are prepared to kill him before he would arrive to you.” 16 And the son of the sister of Paul heard of this plot. And he entered the military camp and informed Paul. 17 And Paul sent [and] called for one of the centurions and said to him, “Conduct this young man to the chiliarch, for he has something to say to him.” 18 And the centurion took the young man and brought him to the chiliarch and he said, “Paul, the prisoner, called me and asked me to bring this young man to you, who has something to say to you.” 19 And the chiliarch held the young man by the hand and led him to one side and asked him, “What do you have to say to me?” 20 And the young man said to him, “The Yehudaye have purposed to ask you to bring Paul down tomorrow to their synagogue, as though they wish to learn something more from him. 21 However, you should not be persuaded by them, for behold, more than forty men of them are watching for him in ambush and have vowed to themselves that they will neither eat nor drink until they will have killed him. And behold, they are ready and are waiting for your promise.” 22 And the chiliarch dismissed the young man after he had charged him, “Let no man know that you have shown me these [things].” 23 And he called two centurions and said to them, “Go [and] prepare two hundred Romans to go to Caesarea and seventy horsemen and two hundred archers with the right hand to leave at the third hour of the night. 24 And also provide a beast of burden to set Paul on and deliver him to Felix the governor.” 25 And he wrote a letter [and] gave [it] to them in which was the following: 26 Lysias to Felix, the noble governor: “Greeting. 27 The Yehudaye arrested this man so that they could kill him and I aided [him] with Romans and rescued him when I learned that he was a Roman. 28 And as I was seeking to know the charge for which they accused him, I brought him to their synagogue. 29 And I found out that they accused him about questions of their Namusa and there was not a charge toward him that was worthy of bonds or death. 30 And when I was informed of a plot by an ambush that the Yehudaye had planned against him, immediately I sent him to you and commanded his accusers to come and speak with him before you. Farewell.” 31 Then the Romans, as they were commanded, led Paul by night and brought him to the city [of] Antipatris. 32 And the next day, the horsemen sent away the foot soldiers, their associates, to return to the military camp. 33 And they brought him to Caesarea and gave the letter to the governor and they placed Paul before him. 34 And when he read the letter, he asked him from what province he was. And when he learned that he was from Cilicia, 35 he said to him, “I will hear you, when your accusers are come.” And he commanded that they should keep him in the judgment hall of Herod.

And after five days, Khananya the high priest went down, with the elders and with Tertullus the orator, and they informed the governor concerning Paul. 2 And when he was called, Tertullus began to accuse him and said, “We live in abundance of quietness because of you and many reforms have been [made] for this people in the discharge of your care. 3 And all of us in every place receive your favor, noble Felix. 4 But lest you should be wearied with many [things], I beg you to hear our humility with few words. 5 For we have found this man to be one who is corrupt and stirs up sedition among all the Yehudaye in all the land. For he is the leader of the teaching of the Natsraye 6 and he wanted to defile our temple. After we arrested him, we wanted to judge him according to our Namusa, 7 but Lysias the chiliarch came and with great violence, grabbed him out of our hands and sent him to you. 8 And he commanded his accusers to come before you. And you will find when you ask him, that you will learn from him about all these [things] of which we are accusing him.” 9 And the Yehudaye also cried out against him, saying that these [things] were so.10 And the governor signaled to Paul to speak. And Paul answered and said, “For many years, I know that you have been a judge of this people and because of this, I make a defense for myself gladly. 11 As you may know, there has not been more than twelve days since I went up to Urishlem to worship. 12 And they did not find me speaking with anyone in the temple, nor gathering a crowd, not in their synagogue or in the city. 13 And they will not be able to prove before you what they are now accusing me. 14 Nevertheless, this I do confess, that in this teaching about which they speak, I serve the Alaha of my fathers, believing all the things that are written in the Namusa and in the prophets. 15 And I have hope of Alaha, which they themselves also are hoping, that there is going to be a resurrection from the dead of the upright and of the wicked. 16 Because of this also, I am laboring to have a pure conscience before Alaha and before men always. 17 Now after many years, I came to my own people to give charity and to bring an offering. 18 And these [men] found me in the temple as I was purifying myself, not with a crowd nor in a riot. 19 But if certain Yehudaye who came from Asia stirred up [the riot], these ought to stand with me before you and accuse [me of] whatever they have [against me]. 20 Or these should say what offense they found in me, when I stood before their assembly. 21 [There was no offense] except this one word that I cried out when I stood among them, “Concerning the resurrection of the dead I am being judged before you today.”“ 22 Now Felix, because he knew of this way fully, put them off, saying, “When the chiliarch comes, I will hear between you.” 23 And he commanded a centurion to keep Paul at ease and that none of his associates would be forbidden to minister to him. 24 And after a few days, Felix and Drusilla his wife, who was a Yehudaya, sent and called for Paul and heard from him about the faith of Meshikha. 25 And while he was speaking with them about justification and about sanctification and about the judgment of the future, Felix was filled with fear. And he said, “Now go, and when I have time, I will send for you.” 26 For he was hoping that a bribe would be given to him by Paul. Because of this, he also continually sent for him to come and speak with him. 27 And after two years were concluded, another governor came into his position, who was called Porcius Festus. Now Felix, so that he would gain favor with the Yehudaye, left Paul bound.

ACTS CHAPTER 25
And when Festus came to Caesarea, after three days, he went up to Urishlem. 2 And the chief priests and the rulers of the Yehudaye informed him about Paul. And they begged him, 3 Page 150 of 276
1

asking him this favor, that he would summon him to be brought to Urishlem, as they were setting ambushes along the road to kill him. 4 And Festus gave an answer, “Paul will be kept at Caesarea and I will hasten to journey [there]. 5 Therefore, those who are with you, who are able to come down with us, should accuse [him] concerning every offense that is in the man.” 6 And when he had been there eight or ten days, he went down to Caesarea. And on the next day he sat on the judgment seat and commanded that they should bring Paul. 7 And after he arrived, the Yehudaye, who had come down from Urishlem, surrounded him and the leaders brought many harsh [things] against him, which they were not able to prove, 8 and after Paul made a defense that he had not offended [in] anything, neither in the Namusa of the Yehudaye, nor in the temple, nor against Caesar. 9 But Festus, because he was willing to grant a favor to the Yehudaye, said to Paul, “Are you willing to go up to Urishlem and there to be judged before me about these [things]?”10 Paul answered and said, “I stand on the judgment seat of Caesar. Here it is right for me to be judged. I have not committed any sin against the Yehudaye, as you also know. 11 And if I had committed an offense or anything worthy of death, I would not refuse death. But if there is nothing against me of these [things] that they are accusing me, no one should give me to them [as] a gift. I make an appeal to Caesar.” 12 Then Festus spoke with his counselors. And he said, “Have you made an appeal [to] Caesar? To Caesar you will go.” 13 And after there were [some] days, Agrippa the king and Bernice came down to Caesarea to greet Festus. 14 And after they were with him [some] days, Festus narrated the case of Paul to the king, saying, “A certain man was left a prisoner by the hands of Felix. 15 And when I was in Urishlem, the chief priests and elders of the Yehudaye informed me regarding him and desired that I would give them judgment against him.” 16 And I said to them, “It is not the custom of the Romans to give a man [as] a gift for murder, until his opponent at law should come and charge him to his face and an opportunity is given to him to make a defense regarding that for which he is accused. 17 And when I came here, without delay, the next day I sat on the judgment seat and commanded them to bring me the man. 18 And his accusers stood with him and they were not able to prove any evil accusation against him, even as I had supposed. 19 But they had various questions to him concerning their religion and concerning Yeshue, a man who died, whom Paul was saying was alive. 20 And because I did not establish [anything] about the dispute of these [things], I had said to Paul, “Do you desire to go to Urishlem and there to be judged concerning these [things]?” 21 But he requested to be kept for judgment before Caesar and I commanded that he should be kept until I would send him to Caesar.” 22 And Agrippa said, “I desire to hear this man.” And Festus said, “Tomorrow you will hear him.” 23 And the next day Agrippa and Bernice came with great ceremony and entered the judgment hall with the chiliarchs and rulers of the city and Festus commanded and Paul came. 24 And Festus said, “Agrippa, the king, and all men who are with us, concerning this man whom you see, all the people of the Yehudaye have complained to me in Urishlem and here, crying out that it is no longer right for this [man] to live. 25 But I have found that he has not done anything that is worthy of death. And because he requested to be kept for judgment before Caesar, I have commanded that he should be sent. 26 And I do not know what to write about him to Caesar. Because of this, I desired to bring him before you and especially before you, King Agrippa, that when his case will be examined, I will be able to write what [it is]. 27 For it is not proper, when we send a man [as] a prisoner, not to write his offense.”

ACTS CHAPTER 26

Page 151 of 276

And Agrippa said to Paul, “You are permitted to speak for yourself.” Then Paul stretched out his hand and made a defense and said, 2 “Concerning all of which I am accused by the Yehudaye, King Agrippa, I consider myself blessed that I may make a defense before you today, 3 especially because I know that you are acquainted with all the questions and laws of the Yehudaye. Because of this, I beg you to hear me with long-suffering. 4 For those Yehudaye also know, if they were willing to testify, [that] my manner of life was from my childhood, from the beginning, among my people and in Urishlem, 5 because from long ago they were aware of me and know that I lived in the best teaching of the Perishye. 6 And now, concerning the hope of the promise that was [given] to our fathers from Alaha, I stand and am judged. 7 For concerning this hope our twelve tribes hope to come, with diligent prayers by day and by night. And concerning this hope, I am accused by the hands of the Yehudaye, King Agrippa. 8 What are you judging? Is it not right that we believe that Alaha raises the dead? 9 For formerly, I had set in my mind that I would do many adverse [things] against the name of Yeshue the Natsraya. 10 This I also did in Urishlem and I threw many holy [ones] in prison by the authority that I received from the chief priests. And when they were killed by them, I shared fully with those who condemned them. 11 And in every synagogue I tortured them, compelling [them] to blaspheme in the name of Yeshue. And with the great anger that I was filled with against them, I also went to other cities to persecute them. 12 And when I was going for this purpose to Damascus with the authority and permission of the chief priests, 13 in the middle of the day on the road, I saw from heaven, oh King, a light that was greater than the sun that shone on me and on all who were with me. 14 And we all fell on the ground. And I heard a voice saying to me in Evraith, “Shaul, Shaul, why are you persecuting me? It is hard for you to kick against the goads.” 15 And I said, “Who are you, my Lord?” And our Lord said to me, “I am Yeshue, the Natsraya, whom you are persecuting.” 16 And he said to me, “Stand on your feet. For I have appeared to you because of this, to ordain you [as] a minister and a witness that you have seen me and that you are going to see me. 17 And I will deliver you from the people of the Yehudaye and from other Gentiles, to whom I send you, 18 that you should open their eyes, so that they will turn from darkness to the light and from the authority of Satan to Alaha and they will receive forgiveness of sins and a portion with the holy [ones] by faith that [is] in me.” 19 Because of this, King Agrippa, I did not oppose the heavenly vision with dispute, 20 but I preached from the first to those of Damascus and to those who were in Urishlem and in all the villages of Yehuda and also to the Gentiles. I preached that they should repent and should turn back to Alaha and should perform works that are suitable to repentance. 21 And on account of these [things], the Yehudaye arrested me in the temple and desired to kill me. 22 But Alaha helped me to this day and behold, I stand and testify to the small and to the great, not saying anything outside of Mushe and the prophets, but those [things] that they said that were going to happen, 23 that Meshikha would suffer and would become the first[fruit] of the resurrection from the dead and that he would preach light to the people and to the Gentiles.” 24 And as Paul was thus making a defense, Festus cried out with a loud voice, “Paul, you are mad! Much learning has caused you to be mad!” 25 Paul said, “I am not mad, noble Festus, but I am speaking words of truth and integrity. 26 And also, King Agrippa especially knows about these [things], and because of this, I speak boldly before him, because I think that not one of these words has escaped his notice, for it was not performed secretly. 27 Do you believe the prophets, King Agrippa? I know that you do believe.” 28 Agrippa said to him, “You are very nearly persuading me to become a Christian.” 29 And Paul said, “I have asked Alaha in little and in much, not only for you to be, but also all those who hear me today, that they should be like me, Page 152 of 276

except for these bonds.” 30 And the king stood up and the governor and Bernice and those who were sitting with them. 31 And after they had gone out from there, they spoke with each other and said, “This man has not done anything that is worthy of death or bonds.” 32 And Agrippa said to Festus, “It is possible that this man could have been freed, if he had not appealed to Caesar.”

ACTS CHAPTER 27
And Festus commanded concerning him that he should be sent to Caesar to Italy. And he delivered Paul and other prisoners with him to a certain man, a centurion from the Augustan cohort, whose name was Julius. 2 And when it was ready to sail, we went down to a ship that was from the city [of] Adramyttium and was traveling to the region of Asia. And Aristarchus, a Macedonian who was from the city [of] Thessalonica, came on the ship with us. 3 And the next day we arrived at Tsaidan. And the centurion treated Paul with compassion and allowed him to go to his friends and to be refreshed. 4 And we sailed from there and because the winds were contrary to us, we followed a course near Cyprus. 5 And we crossed over the sea of Cilicia and Pamphylia and arrived at the city [of] Myra, of Lycia. 6 And there the centurion found a ship from Alexandria that was traveling to Italy and they settled us on it. 7 And because we were sailing under heavy [seas], after many days we barely reached the island [of] Cnidus. And because the wind did not allow us to proceed by a straight course, we kept a heading near Crete towards the city [of] Salamauna. 8 And after we had sailed around it with difficulty, we arrived at a place that was called Fair Havens, [that] was near to a city by the name of Lasea. 9 And we were there a long time until even the day of the fast of the Yehudaye was past. And it was dangerous for anyone to travel by sea and Paul counseled them10 and said, “Men, I perceive that our voyage will occur with calamity and with much loss, not only of the cargo of our ship, but also of our own lives.” 11 But the centurion listened to the shipmaster and the captain of the ship, rather than the words of Paul. 12 And because that port was not suitable to winter in foul weather, many of us wanted to travel from there and if possible, to reach and winter in a certain port that was in Crete and was called Phenice and looked to the south. 13 And after the south wind blew and they thought that we would arrive according to their desire, they followed a course on the side of Crete. 14 And shortly after we left, a sudden blast of wind [came] on us that was called a typhoon Euroclydon. 15 And the ship was caught up and was not able to bear up against the wind and we yielded control of it. 16 And as we passed by a certain island that was called Cauda, we were hardly able to keep hold of the longboat. 17 And after we had taken it up [on board], we undergirded and prepared the ship. And because we were afraid, lest we should fall in the downward rapids of the sea, we pulled down the sail and so we drifted. 18 And as the violent storm raged against us, the next day we threw goods in the sea. 19 And the third day, we cast overboard the ship’s own riggings with our hands. 20 And as the tempest continued more days and the sun was not visible nor the moon nor stars, all hope of our living was completely cut off. 21 And as no one had eaten anything, then Paul stood up among them and said, “If you had been persuaded by me, men, we would not have sailed from Crete and we would have been spared from loss and from this calamity. 22 And now, I counsel that you should be without distress, for not one of you will be destroyed, but only the ship. 23 For there appeared to me in this night, an angel of that Alaha whose I am and whom I serve. 24 And he said to me, “Fear not, Paul, it is prepared for you to stand before Caesar and behold, Alaha has given to you [as a] gift, all who Page 153 of 276
1

sail with you.” 25 Because of this, be encouraged, men, for I believe in Alaha that it will be so even as it was communicated with me. 26 Nevertheless, we have to be thrown on a certain island.” 27 And after fourteen days that we were wandering and were buffeted in the Adriatic Sea, at midnight, the sailors thought that they were coming near land. 28 And they put out the anchors and found twenty fathoms, and again they went forward a little, and found fifteen fathoms. 29 And being afraid lest we should be found the places where there were rocks, they put out four anchors from the stern of the ship and prayed that it would be day. 30 Now the sailors tried to flee from the ship and they lowered the longboat to the sea on the pretext that they would go in it to secure the ship on the land. 31 And Paul seeing [this], said to the centurion and to the soldiers, “If these do not remain in the ship, you will not be able to be saved.” 32 Then the soldiers cut off the ropes of the longboat from the ship and allowed it to go adrift. 33 But Paul, when it was almost daybreak, convinced all of them that to take [some] nourishment, saying to them, “Behold, today [it has been] fourteen days since you have eaten anything on account of the danger. 34 Because of this, I beg you to take food for the strengthening of your life, for not a hair from the head of any of you will be hurt.” 35 And as he said these [things], he took bread and praised Alaha before all of them and he broke [the bread] and began to eat. 36 And they were all comforted and they received sustenance. 37 Now there were two hundred and seventy-six people in the ship. 38 And when they were satisfied with the food, they lightened the ship and took the wheat and threw [it] in the sea. 39 And when it was day, the sailors did not recognize what land it was, but they saw by the shore of the dry land a certain bay of the sea, where they thought that, if possible, they could thrust the ship. 40 And they cut off the anchors from the ship and they left them in the sea. And they released the bands of the rudders and hoisted the small sail to the wind that was blowing and they proceeded toward the dry land. 41 And the ship struck on a place that was high between two deep [parts] of the sea and it was stuck on it. And the forward part of it stayed on it and was not to be moved, but the back part of it was broken to pieces by the violence of the waves. 42 And the soldiers wanted to kill the prisoners, so that they would not jump in swimming and would escape from them. 43 And the centurion prevented them from this, because he wanted to save Paul. And those who were able to jump in swimming, he commanded to swim first and to pass over to the land. 44 And the rest crossed over on boards and on other wood pieces of the ship. And so all of them escaped safely to the land.

ACTS CHAPTER 28
And afterwards, they learned that the island was called Melita. 2 And the barbarians who were living on it showed us many kindnesses and they kindled a fire and called to all of us that we should warm ourselves, because there was a great rain and [it was] cold. 3 And Paul picked up a large bundle of sticks and placed [them] on the fire and a viper came out of them because of the heat of the fire and bit his hand. 4 And when the barbarians saw that it was hanging on his hand, they said, “Perhaps this man is a murderer, so that even though he was rescued from the sea, justice will not allow him to live.” 5 But Paul shook his hand and threw the viper in the fire and it did not harm him. 6 Now the barbarians expected that immediately he would swell up and fall dying on the ground. And after they waited a long time and saw that it did not harm him, they changed their words and said, “He is a god.” 7 Now there were fields in that place [that belonged] to a certain man, whose name was Publius, who was the ruler of the Page 154 of 276
1

island. And he gladly received us in his house [for] three days. 8 Now the father of Publius was sick with fever and with pain in the bowels. And Paul went in to him and prayed and laid his hand on him and healed him. 9 And after this happened, the rest of those who were also sick on the island came to him and they were healed.10 And they honored us [with] great honors and after we left there, they supplied us with provisions. 11 Now after three months, we left and sailed in a ship [of] Alexandria that had wintered in the island and the sign of the Twins was on it. 12 And we came to the city [of] Syracuse and remained there [for] three days. 13 And from there we took a course and arrived at the city [of] Rhegium. And after one day, the south wind blew for us and in two days we came to Puteoli, a city of Italy. 14 And we found brothers there and they asked us [to stay] and we were with them [for] seven days and then we went on to Rome. 15 And when the brothers who were there heard [of our coming], they went out to meet us as far as the square that was called Appii Forum and as far as the Three Taverns. And when Paul saw them, he gave thanks to Alaha and was strengthened. 16 And we entered Rome and the centurion allowed Paul to lodge where he wanted, with a soldier who guarded him. 17 And after three days, Paul sent [and] called for the rulers of the Yehudaye. And when they were gathered, he said to them, “Men, my brothers, although in nothing I stood against the people and the Namusa of my fathers, I was delivered in bonds at Urishlem into the hand of the Romans.” 18 And after they examined me, they wanted to release me, because they did not find any fault against me that was worthy of death. 19 “And as the Yehudaye stood against me, I was compelled to appeal to Caesar, [but] not because I had anything of which I would accuse the sons of my people. 20 Because of this, I asked you to come and to see you and to narrate these [things] to you, for because of the hope of Israyel, I am bound with this chain.” 21 They said to him, “We have not received a letter about you from Yehuda and none of the brothers who have come from Urishlem have told us anything that is evil about you. 22 Now we want to hear from you what you think, because we know that this teaching is not accepted by men.” 23 And they appointed him a day and they gathered together. And many came to him where he was lodging and he made known to them about the kingdom of Alaha, witnessing and persuading them about Yeshue, from the Namusa of Mushe and from the prophets, from morning until evening. 24 And some of them were convinced of his words and others were not convinced. 25 And they left him, disagreeing with one another. And Paul said to them this word, “Well did the Rukha d’Qudsha speak by the mouth of Eshaya the prophet against your fathers, 26 saying: Go to this people and say to them, hearing, you will hear and you will not understand and you will see and you will not comprehend. 27 For the heart of this people has become dense and they have made heavy their hearing and they have closed their eyes, lest they should see with their eyes and hear with their ears and should understand in their heart[s] and should return to me and I should forgive them. 28 Therefore, be this known to you, that to the Gentiles is this redemption of Alaha being sent. For they also are hearing it.” 29 And when he said these [things], the Yehudaye went out and many were reasoning among them. 30 And Paul hired a house for himself at his own [cost] and was in it [for] two years. And there he received all those who came to him. 31 And he was preaching about the kingdom of Alaha and teaching boldly about our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha without hindrance.

CHAPTER 1
Paul, a servant of Yeshue-Meshikha, a called [one] and an apostle, who was set apart for the gospel of Alaha 2 that he had promised previously by way of his prophets in the holy scriptures, 3 concerning his Son, who was born in the flesh of the seed of the house of Dawid 4 and was made known [as] the Son of Alaha by power and by the Rukh Qdush, who raised Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord from the dead, 5 by whom we have received grace and apostleship among all the Gentiles, so that they would obey the faith of his name, 6 that you also from them are called [ones] in Yeshue-Meshikha. 7 To all who are in Rome, beloved of Alaha, called and holy [ones]: Peace and grace [be] with you from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 8 First, I thank my Alaha in Yeshue-Meshikha for all of you that your faith is heard in all the world. 9 For Alaha is a witness to me, whom I am spiritually serving in the gospel of his Son, that without ceasing at all times, I remember you in my prayers.10 And I am imploring that perhaps even now a way would be opened to me by the will of Alaha to come to you, 11 because I greatly long to see you and to give you a spiritual gift by which you may be strengthened 12 and together we will be comforted by your and my own faith. 13 Now I want you to know, my brothers, that many times I wanted to come to you (yet I was hindered until now) that I would also have fruit among you, as among the rest of the Gentiles, 14 Greeks and barbarians, the wise and the foolish, because I am a debtor to preach to every man. 15 And so I am concerned that I should declare [the gospel] to you who are in Rome also. 16 For I am not ashamed of the gospel, because it is the power of Alaha for the life of all who believe in it, whether [they are] from the Yehudaye first or from the Armaye. 17 For the uprightness of Alaha is revealed in it from faith to faith, as it is written: The upright [one] will live by faith. 18 For the wrath of Alaha is revealed from heaven on all the wickedness and the ungodliness of men, those who close off truthfulness with wickedness, 19 because the knowledge of Alaha is revealed among them, for Alaha revealed it among them. 20 For the hidden [things] of Alaha were made evident from the foundations of the world by his created [things] in [his] wisdom and his power and his deity that is eternal, so that they would be without defense, 21 because they knew Alaha and they did not glorify him as Alaha and give thanks to him, but rather they became fruitless in their reasonings, and their heart without understanding was darkened. 22 And while they were thinking in themselves that they were wise, they were foolish. 23 And they changed the magnificence of the incorruptible Alaha into the likeness of the image of corruptible man and into the likeness of birds and of four-footed [animals] and of creeping things of the earth. 24 Because of this, Alaha delivered them to the polluted desires of their heart[s] to dishonor their bodies by them. 25 And they changed the truth of Alaha into a lie and they reverenced and served the created [things] more than their creator, to whom [be] our praises and our blessings, forever and ever. Amen. 26 Because of this, Alaha delivered them to passions of shame. For their women changed the [natural] use of their sex and used what was not natural. 27 And so also their men left the [natural] use of the sex of women and ran riotously in lust for each other. And male with male, they acted with shame and received in themselves the payment for their error that was just. 28 And since they had not determined in themselves to know Alaha, Alaha delivered them to a mind of emptiness, that they would do what is not right, 29 being filled with all wickedness and Page 156 of 276
1

fornication and bitterness and evil and greed and envy and murder and strife and deceit and evil reasonings 30 and murmuring and slander. And [they are] haters of Alaha, insolent, prideful, boastful, inventors of evil [things], ignorant [ones], who are not obedient to their parents 31 and who do not have stability, nor love, nor quietness, nor is there tenderness in them. 32 [They are] those who, although they know the judgment of Alaha that those who act like this he condemns to death, not only are doing these [things], but also fellowship with those who are doing these [things].

ROMANS CHAPTER 2
Because of this, you have no defense, oh man [who] judges his neighbor, for by that which you judge your neighbor, you condemn yourself. For you who judge are also occupied in these [things]. 2 And we know that the judgment of Alaha is with truthfulness against those who are occupied in these [things]. 3 But what do you think, oh man, you who judge those who are occupied in these [things], while you also are occupied in these [things], that you will escape from the judgment of Alaha? 4 Or are you presumptuous against the riches of his kindness and against his long-suffering and against the advantage that he gave to you? And do you not know that the kindness of Alaha brings you to repentance? 5 But because of the hardness of your heart that does not repent, you lay up for yourself a treasure of wrath for the day of wrath and for the revelation of the upright judgment of Alaha,who repays everyone according to his works. 7 To those, who in the patience of good works seek glory and honor and incorruptibility, he gives eternal life. 8 But [to] those who are stubborn and do not obey the truth, but obey wickedness, he will repay wrath and fury 9 and pressure and trouble, to everyone who does evil [things], first to the Yehudaye and [then] to the Armaye.10 But glory and honor and peace [will be] to all who do good [things], first to the Yehudaye and [then] to the Armaye. 11 For there is no respect of persons with Alaha. 12 For those who have sinned without the Namusa will also be destroyed without the Namusa, and those who have sinned in the Namusa will be judged from the Namusa, 13 for the hearers of the Namusa are not upright before Alaha, but the doers of the Namusa are justified 14 (for if the Gentiles, who did not have the Namusa, naturally did [the things] of the Namusa, who although they did not have the Namusa, have a law for themselves 15 and they show the work of the Namusa as it is written on their heart[s] and their conscience testifies concerning them, while their reasonings rebuke or defend each other) 16 in the day when Alaha judges the secret [things] of men according to my gospel by way of Yeshue-Meshikha. 17 Now if you who are called a Yehudaya and you take rest in the Namusa and you boast in Alaha 18 that you know his will and you distinguish the proper [things] that you learned from the Namusa 19 and are confident about yourself that you are a leader of the blind and a light for those who are in darkness 20 and a guide of ignorant [ones] and a teacher of children and you have an example of knowledge and of truth in the Namusa, 21 then you who teach others, do you not teach yourself? And you who preach that they should not steal, do you steal? 22 And you who say that they should not commit adultery, do you commit adultery? And you who despise idols, do you spoil the sanctuary? 23 And you who boast in the same Namusa when you transgress the Namusa, do you dishonor Alaha? 24 For because of you the name of Alaha is defamed among the Gentiles, as it is written. 25 For circumcision is beneficial if you thoroughly perform the Namusa, but if you transgress the Namusa, your circumcision becomes uncircumcision. 26 Now if the Page 157 of 276
1

uncircumcision keeps the commandment of the Namusa, behold, should not the uncircumcision be counted circumcision? 27 And the uncircumcision, which fulfills the Namusa by its nature, will judge you who with the scripture and with circumcision transgress the Namusa. 28 For he is not a Yehudaya who is one in appearance, nor [is] what is made visible in the flesh circumcision. 29 But that one is a Yehudaya, who is one secretly and circumcision is that of the heart spiritually and not literally, whose praise is not from men, but from Alaha.

ROMANS CHAPTER 3
Therefore, what is the advantage of the Yehudaya or what [is] the profit of circumcision? 2 Much in everything. [It is] that they were first entrusted with the words of Alaha. 3 For if some of them did not believe, did they make void the faith of Alaha in that they did not believe? 4 Let it not be so! For Alaha is true and every man [is] false, as it is written: you should be upright in your words and be innocent when they judge you. 5 But if our wickedness establishes the uprightness of Alaha, what should we say? Is Alaha wicked who brings his wrath? (I speak as a man.) 6 Let it not be so! Yet if not, how will Alaha judge the world? 7 For if the truth of Alaha was increased by my falsehood for his glory, am I therefore judged as a sinner? 8 Or perhaps [we should say], as they blaspheme about us and say that we say, “We will do evil, so that good may come.” Their judgment is kept for justice. 9 What then? Do we have the superiority, although we previously determined about the Yehudaye and about the Armaye that they were all under sin?10 As it is written: There is no one upright, not even one, 11 nor one who understands, nor who seeks Alaha. 12 All of them have turned aside together and have rejected [Alaha] and there is no one who does good, not even one. 13 Their throats [are] open graves and their tongues are deceitful and the poison of the asp [is] under their lips. 14 Their mouth is full of cursing and bitterness 15 and their feet are swift to shed blood. 16 Adversity and misery [are] in their paths 17 and they do not know the path of peace 18 and there is no fear of Alaha before their eyes. 19 But we know that what the Namusa said, it said to those who are in the Namusa, so that every mouth may be shut and all the world may be found guilty before Alaha, 20 because by the deeds of the Namusa no flesh is justified before him, for by the Namusa sin is known. 21 But now, without the Namusa, the uprightness of Alaha is revealed and the Namusa and the prophets testify about it. 22 But the uprightness of Alaha is by way of the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha to everyone, even on everyone who believes in him, (for there is no distinction, 23 because all have sinned and are deficient compared to the glory of Alaha) 24 and they are freely justified by grace and by the redemption that is in Yeshue-Meshikha 25 (this [one] whom Alaha determined beforehand [to be] a pardon by the faith of his blood because of our sins that we had previously sinned). 26 [It is] by the advantage that Alaha in his long-suffering gave to us for the clear showing of his uprightness that is at this time, that he would be upright and would justify with uprightness him who is in the faith of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 27 Then where is boasting? It has been stopped. By what? The Namusa of works? No, but by the law of faith. 28 Therefore, we conclude that a man is justified by faith and not by the works of the Namusa. 29 For is he the Alaha of the Yehudaye only and not of the Gentiles? Yes, also of the Gentiles, 30 because there is one Alaha who justifies the circumcision by faith [and] also the uncircumcision by the same faith. 31 Therefore, do we make the Namusa of none effect by faith? Let it not be so! Rather, we establish the Namusa. Page 158 of 276

ROMANS CHAPTER 4
What then? Are we saying about Avraham the patriarch that he obtained [justification] by the flesh? 2 For if Avraham was justified by works, he had [a reason for] boasting, but not toward Alaha. 3 For what does the scripture say? Avraham believed in Alaha and it was counted to him for justification. 4 Now to him who labors, his wage is not counted to him as by grace, but as that which is owed to him. 5 But to him who does not labor, but believes only in him who justifies sinners, his faith is counted to him for uprightness. 6 As Dawid also said concerning the blessing of the man to whom Alaha counts justification without works, saying: 7 Blessed are they whose wickedness is forgiven and whose sins are covered 8 and blessed is the man to whom Alaha will not count his sin. 9 Therefore, [is] this blessing on the circumcision or on the uncircumcision? For we say that his faith was counted to Avraham for uprightness. 10 How then was it counted to him, in circumcision or in uncircumcision? It was not in circumcision, but in uncircumcision. 11 For he received circumcision [as] a sign and seal of the uprightness of his faith that was in uncircumcision, so that he would become the father to all those who believe from the uncircumcision (that it would be counted to them for uprightness also) 12 and the father to the circumcision, not to those who are from the circumcision only, but also to those who follow in the footsteps of the faith of the uncircumcision of our father Avraham. 13 For the promise to Avraham and to his seed that he would be the heir to the world was not by the Namusa, but by the uprightness of his faith. 14 For if those who are from the Namusa become heirs, faith becomes void and the promise is being made of no effect. 15 For the Namusa is a worker of wrath, for where there is no Namusa, neither [is there] transgression of the Namusa. 16 Because of this, [it is] by faith that we will be justified by grace and the promise will be sure to all his seed, not to those who are from the Namusa only, but also to those who are from the faith of Avraham, who is the father of all of us. 17 As it is written: I have placed you [as] a father to a multitude of the Gentiles, before Alaha in whom you believed, who makes alive the dead and calls those [things] that are not as though they are. 18 And without hope, he believed for the hope that he would be a father to a multitude of the Gentiles, as it is written: So your seed will be. 19 And he was not weak in his faith, considering his dead body that was one hundred years old and the dead womb of Sera. 20 And he did not doubt the promise of Alaha as [one] lacking faith, but was strong in faith and gave praise to Alaha. 21 And he was convinced that Alaha was able to complete what he had promised to him. 22 Because of this, it was counted to him for uprightness. 23 And not on his behalf only was this written: His faith was counted for uprightness, 24 but also on our behalf, because he is also prepared to count [uprightness to] those who believe in him who raised our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha from the dead, 25 who was delivered up for our sins and rose in order to justify us.

ROMANS CHAPTER 5

Therefore, because we are justified by faith, we have peace toward Alaha by our Lord Page 159 of 276

Yeshue-Meshikha, 2 by whom we were brought by faith to this grace in which we stand and boast in the hope of the glory of Alaha. 3 And not only so, but we also boast in our adversities, because we know that adversity perfects patience in us, 4 and patience, experience, and experience, hope. 5 And hope does not put [us] to shame, because the love of Alaha is poured out in our hearts by the Rukha d’Qudsha that was given to us. 6 Now if Meshikha at this time, because of our weakness, died for the ungodly, 7 (for seldom does anyone die for the ungodly, although for good [ones] perhaps some would dare to die) 8 here Alaha has manifested his love that is toward us, because if when we were sinners, Meshikha died for us, 9 then how much more will we be justified now by his blood and be rescued from wrath by him? 10 For if when we were enemies Alaha was reconciled with us by the death of his Son, then how much more will we by his reconciliation live by his life? 11 And not only so, but also we boast in Alaha by way of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, in whom we have now received reconciliation. 12 For as by way of one man sin entered the world and by way of sin, death, even so death passed on all men, in that all of them have sinned. 13 For until the Namusa, sin, although it was in the world, was not counted sin, because there was no Namusa. 14 But death reigned from Adom until Mushe, even over those who had not sinned in the likeness of the transgression of the law of Adom, who was the likeness of him who was to come. 15 But not as the offense, so also was the gift. For if because of the offense of one, many died, then how much more the grace of Alaha and his gift, because of one man, Yeshue-Meshikha, will be made to increase in many? 16 And not as the error of one, so also [was] the gift. For the judgment that was from one resulted in condemnation, but the gift resulted in uprightness from many sins. 17 For if because of the error of one, death reigned, much more those who receive the abundance of grace and of the gift and of uprightness will reign in life by way of one, Yeshue-Meshikha. 18 In like manner, therefore, because of the error of one, condemnation was to all men, so also because of the uprightness of one, the victory for life will be to all men. 19 For as because of the disobedience of one man, many became sinners, so also because of the obedience of one, many will become upright [ones]. 20 Now the entrance that the Namusa had [was] that sin should be multiplied. And where sin multiplied, there grace increased, 21 because as sin reigned in death, so also grace will reign in uprightness to eternal life by way of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha.

ROMANS CHAPTER 6
What then should we say? Should we continue in sin that grace would increase? 2 Let it not be so! For [we are] those who are dead to sin. How can we live in it again? 3 Or do you not know that we who are immersed in Yeshue-Meshikha are immersed in his death? 4 We are buried with him in immersion to death, that as Yeshue-Meshikha rose up from the dead in the glory of his Father, so we will also walk in new life. 5 For if we were planted together with him in the likeness of his death, so we will also be in [the likeness of] his resurrection. 6 For we know that our old man was crucified with him that the body of sin should be annulled, so that we should no longer serve sin. 7 For he who is dead is set free from sin. 8 If then we are dead with Meshikha, we should believe that we will live with Meshikha. 9 For we know that Meshikha rose up from the dead and will not die again and death does not have authority over him. 10 For in dying, he died to sin one time, and in living, he lives to Alaha. 11 So also you should count yourselves that you are dead to sin and alive to Alaha in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 12 Page 160 of 276

Therefore, let not sin reign in your dead body, so that you would obey its desires. 13 And also do not present your members as an instrument of wickedness for sin, but present yourselves to Alaha as men who have life from the dead and let your members be an instrument for the uprightness of Alaha. 14 And sin will not have authority over you, for you are not under the Namusa, but under grace. 15 What then? Should we sin because we are not under the Namusa but under grace? Let it not be so! 16 Do you not know that you must obey him to whom you present yourself for his service? You are the servants of that one whom you obey, whether to sin or to the obedience of uprightness. 17 But thanks [be] to Alaha, because you were a servant of sin, yet [now] you have obeyed from the heart the likeness of the teaching to which you are committed. 18 And when you were freed from sin, you were made subject to uprightness 19 (I speak as among men, because of the weakness of your flesh) that in the same manner that you presented your members for the service of uncleanness and of wickedness, so also now present your members for the service of uprightness and of holiness. 20 For when you were the servants of sin, you were free from uprightness. 21 And what kind of result did you have at that time of which today you are ashamed? For its end is death. 22 And now that you have been freed from sin and you are servants to Alaha, you have holy fruit, whose end [is] eternal life. 23 Now the wage of sin is death and the gift of Alaha [is] eternal life in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha.

ROMANS CHAPTER 7
Or do you not know, my brothers, (for I speak to learned [ones] of the Namusa) that the Namusa has authority over a man as long as he is alive? 2 [It is] as a woman who is bound by the Namusa to her husband as long as he is alive, but if her husband dies, she is freed from the Namusa of her husband. 3 And if while her husband is alive, she has intercourse with another man, she becomes an adulteress. But if her husband dies, she is freed from the Namusa and she is not an adulteress if she marries another man. 4 And now, my brothers, you are also dead to the Namusa in the body of Meshikha that you would be [married] to another, him who rose up from the dead, so that you would bear fruit to Alaha. 5 For while we were in the flesh, the passions of sins that are by the Namusa were working in our members, so that we would bear fruit to death. 6 But now we are absolved from the Namusa and we are dead to that which was holding us captive, that from now on, we should serve in the newness of the Rukha and not in the oldness of the writing. 7 What then are we saying? Is the Namusa sin? Let it not be so! But I did not learn sin, except by way of the Namusa. For I had not known lust, except that the Namusa said: Do not lust. 8 And by this commandment, sin found opportunity and perfected in me every lust, for without the Namusa sin was dead. 9 Now I was alive previously without the Namusa. But when the commandment came, sin lived and I died.10 And I found that commandment of life [to be] to death. 11 For sin, by the opportunity that it found by way of the commandment, caused me to err and by it killed me. 12 Then the Namusa is holy and the commandment is holy and upright and good. 13 Did a good [thing] therefore become death to me? Let it not be so! But sin, that it would be seen as sin, perfected death in me by a good [thing], so that sin would be more condemned by the commandment. 14 For we know that the Namusa is spiritual, but I am of the flesh and I am sold to sin. 15 For that which I perform, I know not. And that which I desire, I do not do, but that which I hate, that I do. 16 And if I do that which I do not desire, I am testifying concerning the Namusa that it is good. 17 But now, I am not performing this, but sin that lives in me. 18 For I Page 161 of 276
1

know that good does not live in me (but that is in my flesh). For to desire the good is easy for me, but to perform it, I am not able. 19 For I do not do the good that I desire to do, but the evil that I do not desire to do, I do it. 20 And if that which I do not desire, I do, I am not doing [it], but sin that lives in me. 21 Therefore, I find a law that agrees with my mind that desires to do good, because evil is near to me. 22 For I rejoice in the Namusa of Alaha in the inward man. 23 But I see another law in my members that wars against the law of my mind and makes me captive to the law of sin that is in my members. 24 I am a miserable man! Who will rescue me from this body of death? 25 I thank Alaha by way of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. Now therefore, in my mind, I am a servant of the Namusa of Alaha, but in my flesh, I am a servant of the law of sin.

ROMANS CHAPTER 8
From now on, there is no condemnation to those who in Yeshue-Meshikha do not walk in the flesh. 2 For the law of the Rukha of life that is in Yeshue-Meshikha has freed you from the law of sin and of death. 3 For because the Namusa was weak by way of the frailty of the flesh, Alaha sent his Son in the likeness of the flesh of sin, because of sin, to condemn sin in the flesh, 4 so that the uprightness of the Namusa would be completed in us, who do not walk carnally but spiritually. 5 For those who are [walking] carnally are carnally minded and those who are [walking] spiritually are spiritually minded. 6 For the thinking of the flesh is death, yet the thinking of the Rukha [is] life and peace, 7 because the thinking of the flesh is an enemy to Alaha, for it is not subject to the Namusa of Alaha, because it is impossible. 8 And those who are carnal are not able to please Alaha. 9 Now you are not [walking] carnally, but spiritually, if truly the Rukha d’Alaha lives in you. But if anyone does not have the Rukha d’Meshikha, this [one] is not his.10 Now if Meshikha [is] in you, the body is dead because of sin, but the Rukha is life because of uprightness. 11 And if the Rukha of that one who raised our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha from the dead lives in you, that one who raised Yeshue-Meshikha from the dead will also make alive your dead bodies because of his Rukha that lives in you. 12 Now, my brothers, we are not debtors to the flesh that we should walk in the flesh. 13 For if you live by the flesh, you are going to die. And if spiritually you put to death the habits of the body, you will have life. 14 For those who are led by the Rukha d’Alaha are the sons of Alaha. 15 For you have not received the spirit of bondage again to fear, but you have received the Rukha of adoption by which we call, “Father, our Father.” 16 And the Rukha gives testimony to our spirit that we are the sons of Alaha. 17 And if [we are] sons, [then] also heirs, heirs of Alaha and fellow-heirs of Yeshue-Meshikha, that if we suffer with him, we will also be glorified with him. 18 For I consider that the sufferings of this time are not equal to the glory that will be revealed in us. 19 For all the creation hopes and waits for the revelation of the sons of Alaha. 20 For the creation was made subject to emptiness, not by its will, but because of him who subjected it, to the hope 21 that also the creation will be freed from the bondage of corruption to the freedoms of the glory of the sons of Alaha. 22 For we know that all created [things] groan and labor in childbirth until today. 23 And they are not alone, but we also who have the first[fruit] of the Rukha groan within ourselves and we wait for the adoption and the redemption of our bodies, 24 because we live in hope. But hope that is seen is not hope. For if we see it, why do we wait for it? 25 But if we hope for something that is not seen, we continue with endurance. 26 So also, the Rukha aids our weakness, for we do not know what is right to pray for. But the Rukha prays on our behalf with groans that are not describable. 27 Page 162 of 276
1

Now he who searches the hearts knows what is the thinking of the Rukha that prays on behalf of the holy [ones] according to the will of Alaha. 28 But we know that those who love Alaha, he aids in everything for good, those whom he determined beforehand to be called [ones]. 29 And from the first he knew them and marked them out with the likeness of the image of his Son, that he would be the firstborn of many brothers. 30 And those whom he marked out beforehand, he called, and those whom he called, he justified, and those whom he justified, he glorified. 31 What then should we say about these [things]? If Alaha [is] for us, who is against us? 32 And if he did not spare his Son, but delivered him up for all of us, how will he not give us everything with him? 33 Who can accuse the chosen [ones] of Alaha? Alaha justifies. 34 Who condemns? Meshikha died and rose and is at the right hand of Alaha and makes petition on our behalf. 35 What will separate me from the love of Meshikha? [Is it] trial or distress or persecution or famine or nakedness or peril or sword? 36 As it is written: Because of you every day we are dying and we are counted as lambs to slaughter. 37 On the contrary, in all these [things] we are victorious by way of him who loved us. 38 For I am persuaded that neither death nor life nor angels nor authorities nor powers nor those [things] present nor future 39 nor height nor depth, neither any other created [thing] will be able to separate us from the love of Alaha that is in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha.

ROMANS CHAPTER 9
I am speaking [with] truthfulness in Meshikha and I am not lying and my mind bears witness concerning me by the Rukha d’Qudsha 2 that I have great sorrow and the grief that is from my heart does not cease. 3 For I have prayed that I myself would be cursed from Meshikha, instead of my brothers and my kinsmen who are in the flesh, 4 who are the sons of Israyel, to whom belong the adoption and the glory and the covenants and the Namusa and the service that is in it and the promises 5 and the fathers and from whom Meshikha was seen in the flesh. He who is Alaha who is over all, to him [be] our praises and our blessings forever and ever. Amen. 6 Now the word of Alaha has indeed not failed, for not all who are from Israyel are Israyel. 7 Neither are all of them sons because [they are] from the seed of Avraham, because it was said: In Iskhaq the seed will be called to you. 8 Now this is [the truth]: the sons of the flesh are not the sons of Alaha, but the sons of the promise are counted for the seed. 9 For the word of promise is this: In this season I will come and Sera will have a son.10 And not this only, but also when Raphqa had intercourse with one [man], our father Iskhaq, 11 before her sons were born and they had not done good or evil, the calling of Alaha was already made known that it should not remain by works, but by way of him who called. 12 For it was said: The elder will be a servant to the younger. 13 As it is written: Yaquv I have loved and Isuw I have set aside. 14 What then should we say? Is there wickedness with Alaha? Let it not be so! 15 Behold, to Mushe he also said: I will have mercy on whom I will have mercy and I will pity whom I pity. 16 Therefore [it is] not by the hands of him who wills, nor by the hands of him who strives, but by the hands of the merciful Alaha. 17 For he said in the scripture to Pharaoh: For this I have appointed you, that I may demonstrate my power by you and that my name may be preached in the whole earth. 18 Then with whom he wills, he has mercy, and with whom he wills, he deals harshly. 19 And perhaps you will say, “Why does he complain? For who can stand against his will?” 20 Therefore, who are you, oh man, that you are giving an answer to Alaha? Does [the thing] formed say to him who formed it, “Why have you so formed me?” 21 Or does not the potter have authority over Page 163 of 276

his clay, that from the [same] lump he makes utensils, one to honor and another to dishonor? 22 Now if Alaha wanted to display his wrath and to make known his power, he would have brought, in the abundance of his long-suffering, wrath on the utensils of wrath that were made for destruction 23 and poured out his mercy on the utensils of mercy that were prepared by Alaha for glory, 24 which we are, the called [ones], not only from the Yehudaye, but also from the Gentiles. 25 As also he said in Hushay: I will call those who were not my people, my own people, and to whom I have not shown mercy, I will show mercy. 26 For it will be [that] in the place where they were called “Not my people,” there they will be called the sons of the living Alaha. 27 And Eshaya preached concerning the sons of Israyel: Even though the number of the sons of Israyel should be as the sand that is in the sea, [only] a remnant of them will be saved. 28 He has decided and determined the matter and Marya will accomplish it on the earth. 29 And [it is] as what Eshaya previously said: If Marya d’Tsavauth had not left us a survivor, we would have been as Sedum and would have resembled Amura. 30 What then should we say? The Gentiles who were not following after uprightness have obtained uprightness, even the uprightness that is from faith. 31 But Israyel, who was following after the Namusa of uprightness, did not obtain the Namusa of uprightness. 32 Because of what? Because it was not from faith, but from the works of the Namusa, for they stumbled at the stone of stumbling. 33 As it is written: Behold, I have set in Tsehyun a stone of stumbling and a stone of offense and he who believes in it will not be ashamed.

ROMANS CHAPTER 10
My brothers, the desire of my heart and my request to Alaha for them [is] that they would be saved. 2 For I testify about them that they have the zeal of Alaha, but not with knowledge. 3 For they do not know the uprightness of Alaha, but they seek to establish an uprightness of their own, and because of this, they are not subject to the uprightness of Alaha. 4 For Meshikha is the consummation of the Namusa for uprightness to all who believe. 5 For Mushe so wrote [about] the uprightness that is by the Namusa: He who does these [things] will live by them. 6 Now the uprightness that is by faith so says: Do not say in your heart, “Who has ascended to heaven and brought down Meshikha? 7 And who has gone down to the depth of Sheol and brought up Meshikha from the dead?” 8 But what does it say? The answer is near to you, to your mouth and to your heart, which is the word of faith that we preach. 9 And if you confess with your mouth our Lord Yeshue and you believe in your heart that Alaha raised him from the dead, you will have life.10 For the heart that believes in him is justified and the mouth that confesses him has life. 11 For the scripture said: All who believe in him will not be ashamed. 12 And in this it does not discriminate either against Yehudaye or against the Armaye, for Marya of all of them is one who is abundant with all who call on him. 13 For all who will call [on] the name of Marya will have life. 14 How then will they call who have not believed in him? Or how will they believe on him whom they have not heard? Or how will they hear without a preacher? 15 Or how will they preach if they are not sent? As it is written: How beautiful [are] the feet of the messengers of peace and of the messengers of good [things]. 16 But not all of them have obeyed the message of the gospel. For Eshaya said: My Marya, who has believed our report? 17 Then, faith is by obedience and obedience by the word of Alaha. 18 But I say, “Have they not heard?” And behold, their report has gone out into all the earth and their words into the outmost Page 164 of 276

borders of the inhabited world. 19 But I say, “Did not Israyel know?” First Mushe so said: I will make you jealous by a nation that is not a nation, and by a nation that is disobedient, I will anger you. 20 And Eshaya was bold and said: I was seen by those who did not seek me and I was found by those who did not ask for me. 21 But to Israyel he said: I have stretched out my hands all day toward a nation who is contentious and disobedient.

ROMANS CHAPTER 11
But I say, “Has Alaha rejected his people?” Let it not be so! For I am also from Israyel. I am from the seed of Avraham, from the tribe of Benyamin. 2 Alaha has not rejected his people, who previously were known by him. Or do you not know what he said in the scripture about Eliya when he was complaining to Alaha about Israyel? And he said: 3 My Marya, they have killed your prophets and have pulled down your altars and I am left alone and they seek my life. 4 And it was said to him by revelation: Behold, I have reserved for myself seven thousand men who have not kneeled on their knees and have not worshipped Baal. 5 So also in this time, a remnant is left by the calling of grace. 6 Now if by grace, it is not by works, unless grace is not grace. And if by works, it is not by grace, unless work is not work. 7 What then? Israyel did not find what it was seeking, but the called [ones] found [it] and the rest of them were blinded in their heart[s]. 8 As it is written: Alaha gave them a blinding spirit and eyes that they would not examine and ears that they would not hear until this very day. 9 And Dawid again said: Their table will be a snare before them and their reward [will be] stumbling.10 Their eyes will be darkened, so that they will not see and their back will always be bowed. 11 Now I say, “Have they stumbled so as to fall?” Let it not be so! But in their stumbling, life has come to the Gentiles for their jealousy. 12 And if their stumbling became riches for the world, and their loss, riches to the Gentiles, how much more then their fullness? 13 But I speak to you Gentiles, I who am the apostle of the Gentiles. I am glorifying my ministry, 14 so that perhaps I may provoke my kinsmen to jealousy and may give life to some of them. 15 For if their rejection was reconciliation to the world, then how much more their return, but life that is from the dead? 16 Now if the original part [is] holy, the thing formed [is holy] also. And if the root is holy, the branches [are] also. 17 And if some branches were broken off and you who are a wild olive [tree] were grafted into their places and became a sharer of the root and of the fatness of the olive [tree], 18 do not pride yourself about the branches. Now if you pride yourself, you are not bearing the root, but the root bears you. 19 And it may be [that] you should say of the branches that were broken off, “I will be grafted in their places.” 20 These [things] are good. They were broken off because they did not believe, but you stand by faith. Do not be elevated in your mind, but have reverence, 21 for if Alaha did not spare the natural branches, perhaps he will also not spare you. 22 See then the gentleness and the harshness of Alaha. On those who fell, harshness. But on you, gentleness, if you remain in the gentleness, and if not, you will also be broken off. 23 And those, if they do not remain in their lack of faith, will also be grafted in, for Alaha is able to graft them in again. 24 For if you, who are from the olive [tree] that was wild by your nature, were cut off and were grafted contrary to your nature in the good olive [tree], then how much more those, if they be grafted in their natural olive [tree]? 25 For I want you to know this mystery, my brothers, so that you will not be wise in your own mind, that blindness of the heart in part has happened to Israyel until the fullness of the Gentiles should come in. 26 And then all Israyel will have life, as it is written: Page 165 of 276
1

From Tsehyun a deliverer will come and turn wickedness from Yaquv. 27 And then they will have the covenant that is from me, when I forgive them their sins. 28 Now in the gospel, they are enemies because of you, and in the calling, they are beloved because of the fathers, 29 for Alaha does not repent in his gift and in his calling. 30 For as you were also disobedient to Alaha previously and now have obtained favor because of their disobedience, 31 so also these are disobedient now to the mercies that are on you, that mercies may also be on them. 32 For Alaha has confined everyone in disobedience, so that he could have mercy on everyone. 33 Oh the depth of the riches and wisdom and knowledge of Alaha, because no one has explored his judgments and his ways are untraceable! 34 For who knows the mind of Marya? Or who is a counselor to him? 35 And who first gives to him and then receives from him? 36 Because all [is] from him, and all [is] by him, and all [is] by his hand, to whom [be] our praises and our blessings forever and ever. Amen.

ROMANS CHAPTER 12
Therefore, I beg you, my brothers, by the mercies of Alaha, to present your bodies a living and holy and acceptable sacrifice to Alaha in reasonable service. 2 And do not imitate this world, but be turned the other way by the renewal of your minds and distinguish what is the good and acceptable and perfect will of Alaha. 3 Now I say by the grace that was given to me for all of you, you should not think outside of what is right to think, but everyone should think soberly, according to faith in the measure Alaha has distributed to him. 4 For as in one body we have many members and all members do not have one function, 5 so also we who are many are one body in Meshikha and each one of us are members of one another. 6 But we have various gifts according to the grace that is given to us. There is [giving] of prophecy according to the measure of his faith, 7 and there is [giving] of ministering one has in his ministering, and there is [giving] of a teacher in his teaching, 8 and there is [giving] of a comforter in his comforting, and of one who gives, with simplicity, and of one who presides, with diligence, and of one who is merciful, with cheerfulness. 9 And let not your love be deceitful, but hate evil and adhere to good.10 Be compassionate to your brothers and love one another. Prefer one another in honor. 11 Be diligent and not lazy. Be fervent in spirit. Labor for your Lord. 12 Rejoice in your hope. Endure your trials. Be steadfast in prayer. 13 Share toward the need of the holy [ones]. Be compassionate [to] strangers. 14 Bless your persecutors. Bless and do not curse. 15 Rejoice with [those] who are rejoicing and weep with [those] who are weeping. 16 And what you think about yourself, also [think] about your brothers. And do not think [with] a proud mind, but associate with those who are meek. And do not be wise in your own mind. 17 And do not repay anyone evil [things] for evil [things], but be diligent to do good [things] before all men. 18 And if it is possible, according to what is in you, be at peace with everyone. 19 And do not avenge yourselves, my beloved, but give place to anger, for it is written: If you will not perform judgment for yourself, I will perform your judgment, says Alaha. 20 And if your enemy is hungry, feed him and if he is thirsty, give him drink and if you do these [things] to him, you will heap coals of fire on his head. 21 Do not let evil [things] overcome you, but overcome evil [things] with good [things].

ROMANS CHAPTER 13
Page 166 of 276

Every one should be subject to greater authorities, for there is no authority that is not from Alaha and these who are authorities were ordained by Alaha. 2 Therefore, he who stands against an authority stands against an ordinance of Alaha and those who stand against them will receive judgment. 3 For judges are not fearful for good works, but for evil. So do you want to not be afraid of an authority? Do good and you will have praise from him. 4 For he is a minister of Alaha, but to you for good. And if you do evil [things], fear, for he is not girded with the sword in vain. For he is a minister of Alaha and an avenger of wrath to those who do evil [things]. 5 And because of this, it is necessary for us to be subject, not only because of wrath, but also because of our conscience. 6 Because of this, you should also give tribute, for they are the ministers of Alaha, who for these same [things] are established. 7 Therefore, repay everyone as is owed to him, to whom tribute [is due], tribute, and to whom tax [is due], tax, and to whom reverence [is due], reverence, and to whom honor [is due], honor. 8 And do not owe anyone anything, but to love each other. For he who loves his neighbor has fulfilled the Namusa. 9 For this [is] also what is said: do not commit adultery and do not kill and do not steal and do not lust, and if there is another commandment, it is fulfilled in this saying: love your neighbor as yourself.10 Love does not do evil [things] to his neighbor, because love is the fulfillment of the Namusa. 11 And also know this, that it is the time and the hour that from now on we should be awakened from our sleep. For now our life has come nearer to us than when we believed. 12 Then the night is passed and the day is near. So we should lay aside from us the works of darkness and we should put on the armor of light. 13 And we should walk in [this] manner, as in the day, not in reveling and not in drunkenness and not in a defiled bed and not in envy and in strife. 14 But put on our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and do not have regard for the desires that are in your flesh.

ROMANS CHAPTER 14
Now to him who is weak in faith, give a hand, and do not have doubt in your reasonings. 2 For there is one who believes that he may eat everything, yet he who is weak eats herbs. 3 Now that one who eats should not treat with contempt him who does not eat, and that one who does not eat should not judge him who eats, for Alaha has received him. 4 Who are you that you judge a servant who is not your own, who, if he stands, stands before his lord and if he falls, falls before his lord? But he will indeed stand, for it will be by the hands of his lord that he will be established. 5 There is one who judges a day from a day and there is one who judges all days. But everyone should be assured in his own mind. 6 He who is mindful of a day is mindful [of it] before his Lord. And everyone who is not mindful of a day is not mindful [of it] before his Lord. And whoever eats, eats before his Lord and thanks Alaha. And he who does not eat, does not eat before his Lord and thanks Alaha. 7 For there is not one of us who lives for himself and there is not one who dies for himself, 8 because if we live, we live for our Lord and if we die, we die for our Lord. And therefore, whether we live or whether we die, we belong to our Lord. 9 Because of this, Meshikha also died and is alive and is risen that he would be Marya for the dead and for the living.10 Now why do you judge your brother? Or why do you also treat your brother with contempt? For all of us are going to stand before the judgment seat of Meshikha, 11 as it is written: I live, says Marya, every knee will bow to me and every tongue will confess me. 12 So Page 167 of 276
1

then, every one of us will give an answer for himself to Alaha. 13 So then, we should not judge each other, but rather determine this more, that you will not place a stumbling block before your brother. 14 For I know and am persuaded in Marya Yeshue that there is not anything that is defiled of itself. But to him who thinks that something is unclean, to him alone it is unclean. 15 And if you grieve your brother because of food, you are not walking in love. Do not hurt him by your food for whose sake Meshikha died. 16 And let not our good be defamed. 17 For the kingdom of Alaha is not food and drink, but uprightness and peace and joy by the Rukha d’Qudsha. 18 For he who serves Meshikha in these [things] pleases Alaha and stands approved [before] men. 19 Now we should follow after peace and after edifying each other. 20 And we should not depart from the works of Alaha because of food. For everything is pure, but it is wrong for a man who eats with stumbling. 21 It is good that we should neither eat flesh nor drink wine nor [do] anything by which our brother stumbles. 22 You who have faith, keep it in yourself before Alaha. Blessed is he who does not judge himself in what he distinguishes. 23 For he who doubts and eats is condemned, because it is not in faith, for everything that is not from faith is sin.

ROMANS CHAPTER 15
Therefore, we, the strong [ones], ought to bear the infirmity of the weak [ones] and not to please ourselves. 2 But, each of us should please his neighbor in good [things] for edification, 3 because Meshikha also did not please himself. But as it is written: The reviling of your revilers has fallen on me. 4 For everything that was previously written is for our instruction. It was written so that by the patience and by the comfort of the scriptures we would have hope. 5 Now the Alaha of patience and of comfort grant you to think in harmony with each other, in Yeshue-Meshikha, 6 that with one mind and with one mouth you may praise Alaha, the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 7 Because of this, draw near to and bear up each other, as also Meshikha has drawn near to you for the glory of Alaha. 8 Now I say that Yeshue-Meshikha served the circumcision on behalf of the truth of Alaha to confirm the promise of the fathers 9 and [that] the Gentiles would glorify Alaha for the mercies that came on them. As it is written: I will confess you among the Gentiles and I will sing to your name.10 And again he said: Rejoice, Gentiles, with his people. 11 And again he said: Praise Marya, all you Gentiles. Praise him, all people. 12 And again Eshaya said: There will be a root to Ishai and he who will rise up will be a ruler to the Gentiles and on him the Gentiles will hope. 13 Now the Alaha of hope fill you with all joy and peace in faith, so that you may abound in his hope by the power of the Rukha d’Qudsha. 14 Now I also am persuaded concerning you, my brothers, that you are also full of goodness and are completed with all knowledge and are also able to admonish others. 15 Now I have written somewhat boldly to you, my brothers, to remind you of the grace that was given to me from Alaha, 16 that I should be a minister to Yeshue-Meshikha among the Gentiles and I should labor for the gospel of Alaha, so that the offering of the Gentiles would be acceptable and made holy by the Rukha d’Qudsha. 17 Therefore, I have boasting in Yeshue-Meshikha to Alaha. 18 For I do not presume to speak of anything that Meshikha has not accomplished by my hands for the obedience of the Gentiles, in word and in deeds, 19 by the power of signs and of wonders and by the power of the Rukha d’Alaha. From Urishlem I have traveled all the way to Illyricum and I have fulfilled the gospel of Meshikha, 20 being careful not to preach where the name of Meshikha Page 168 of 276
1

was called, so that I would not build on a strange foundation, 21 but rather, as it is written: Those who were not told about him will see him and those who have not heard will be persuaded. 22 Because of this, I have been prevented many times [from] coming to you. 23 But now, because I have no place in these regions and I have desired for many years to come to you, 24 when I go to Spain, I hope to come and see you and [that] you will accompany me there when I have been a little refreshed by the sight of you. 25 But now, I am going to Urishlem to minister to the holy [ones], 26 for those who are in Macedonia and in Achaia desired to be a partner with the poor holy [ones] who are in Urishlem. 27 They desired [this], because they are also indebted to them. For if the Gentiles have partnered with them in spiritual [things], they are indebted also to serve them in fleshly [things]. 28 Therefore, when I have finished this and have impressed on them this fruit, I will cross over to you [on my way] to Spain. 29 And I know that when I come to you, I will come in the fullness of the blessing of the gospel of Meshikha. 30 Now I beg you, my brothers, by our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and by love of the Rukha, to labor with me in prayer to Alaha for me, 31 that I may be delivered from those who are not persuaded who are in Yehuda, and [that] the service that I carry to the holy [ones] that are in Urishlem will be received well, 32 and [that] I may come to you with joy by the will of Alaha and be refreshed with you. 33 Now the Alaha of peace be with all of you. Amen.

ROMANS CHAPTER 16
Now I commend to you Phoebe, our sister, who is a minister of the church of Cenchrea, that you should receive her in our Lord as is just for holy [ones] and you should assist her in every matter that she asks of you, because she has been an assistant both to many [and] also to me. 3 Greet Priscilla and Aquila, workers with me in Yeshue-Meshikha, 4 because these same ones risked their necks for my life. And not only I am thankful for them, but also all the churches of the Gentiles [are thankful]. 5 And greet the church that is in their house. Greet my beloved Epaenetus, who was the first[fruit] of Achaia in Meshikha. 6 Greet Maryam who has toiled much among you. 7 Greet Andronicus and Junia, my brothers, who were captives with me and are known by the apostles and were in Meshikha before me. 8 Greet Amplias, my beloved in our Lord. 9 Greet Urbane, a worker who is with us in Meshikha, and my beloved Stachys.10 Greet Apelles, chosen in our Lord. Greet the household of Aristobulus. 11 Greet Herodion, my kinsman. Greet the household of Narcissus, who are in our Lord. 12 Greet Tryphena and Tryphosa who labor in our Lord. Greet my beloved Persis, who labored much in our Lord. 13 Greet Rufus, chosen in our Lord, and his own mother and mine. 14 Greet Asyncritus and Phlegon and Hermas and Patrobas and Hermes and the brothers who are with them. 15 Greet Philologus and Julia and Nereus and his sister and Olympas and all of the holy [ones] who are with them. 16 Greet each other with a holy kiss. All of the churches of Meshikha greet you. 17 Now I beg you, my brothers, to beware of those who cause divisions and scandals outside of the teaching that you have learned, that you keep away from them. 18 For those who are like this do not serve our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, but their belly. And with sweet words and with blessings, they turn away the hearts of the simple. 19 But your obedience is known to everyone. I rejoice, therefore, in you and want you to be wise to good [things] and innocent to evil [things]. 20 And the Alaha of peace will soon crush Satan under your feet. The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha be with you. 21 Timothy, a worker with me, greets you, and Lucius and Jason and Sosipater, my brothers. 22 I,

Tertius, who wrote the letter, greet you in our Lord. 23 Gaius, my host and [a host] of all the church, greets you. Erastus, the steward of the city, and Quartus, a brother, greet you. 24 Now to Alaha, who is able to establish you in my gospel that is proclaimed about Yeshue-Meshikha by the revelation of the mystery that was hidden from the times of the ages, 25 but is revealed in this time by way of the writings of the prophets, and by the commandment of the eternal Alaha is made known to all the Gentiles for the obedience of the faith, 26 who alone is wise, [be] glory by way of Yeshue-Meshikha forever and ever. Amen. 27 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with all of you. Amen.

I CORINTHIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul, a called [one] and an apostle by Yeshue-Meshikha by the will of Alaha, and Sosthenes, a brother, 2 to the church of Alaha that is in Corinth, called [ones] and holy [ones] who are made holy in Yeshue-Meshikha, and to all who call on the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha in every place, theirs and ours: 3 Grace [be] with you and peace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 I give thanks to my Alaha at all times on behalf of you for the grace of Alaha that was given to you in Yeshue-Meshikha, 5 that in everything you may grow rich in him in every word and in all knowledge, 6 as the witness of Meshikha is established in you, 7 so that you do not lack in any one of his gifts, but you are waiting for the appearance of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 8 who will establish you up to the end, so that you may be without blame in the day of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 9 Alaha is faithful, by whom you were called to the fellowship of his Son, Yeshue-Meshikha, our Lord.10 Now I beg you, my brothers, in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, that you have one word to all and [that] there should be no divisions among you, but [that] you may be perfected in one purpose and in one mind. 11 For they sent a message to me about you, my brothers, from the house of Chloe, that there are disputes among you. 12 Now I say this because there is one of you who says, “I am of Paul,” and there is one who says, “I am of Apollos,” and there is one who says, “I am of Kipha,” and there is one who says, “I am of Meshikha.” 13 Is Meshikha divided? Or was Paul crucified for your sake? Or were you immersed in the name of Paul? 14 I thank Alaha that I did not immerse any of you, except Crispus and Gaius, 15 so that no one would say that I immersed in my name. 16 Now I also immersed the household of Stephanas. But besides [them], I do not know if I immersed anyone else. 17 For Meshikha did not send me to immerse, but to preach, not with wisdom of words, so that the cross of Meshikha would not be made void. 18 For the word regarding the cross is foolishness to the perishing [ones], but to us who are living, it is the power of Alaha. 19 For it is written: I will destroy the wisdom of the wise and I will take away the understanding of the intelligent. 20 Where is the wise? Or where is the Saphra? Or where is the analyzer of this world? Behold, has not Alaha made foolish the wisdom of this world? 21 For because in the wisdom of Alaha, the world by wisdom did not know Alaha, Alaha desired to give life to those who believe by the simplicity of preaching, 22 because the Yehudaye ask for signs and the Armaye seek wisdom. 23 But we preach Meshikha crucified, a stumbling block to the Yehudaye, and to the Armaye, foolishness. 24 But to those who are called, Yehudaye and Armaye, Meshikha [is] the power of Alaha and the wisdom of Alaha, 25 because the foolishness of Alaha is wiser than men and the weakness of Alaha is stronger than men. 26 For consider also your calling, my brothers, that not many among you [are] wise in the flesh and not many among you [are] mighty and not many among you [are] of noble birth. 27 But Alaha chose the foolish [ones] of the world to shame the wise and he chose the weak [ones] of the world to shame the strong, 28 and he chose those in the world whose birth was inferior and despised [ones] and those who are nothing to make of none effect those who are [something], 29 so that no flesh should boast before him. 30 But you also are in Yeshue-Meshikha, by whom we have wisdom from Alaha and justification and sanctification and redemption, 31 as it is written: He who boasts should boast in Marya. Page 171 of 276

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 2
And my brothers, when I came to you, I declared to you the mystery of Alaha, not with excellent speech nor with wisdom. 2 And I did not judge myself among you as though I knew anything, except Yeshue-Meshikha and him crucified. 3 And I was with you in much fear and in trembling. 4 And my speech and my preaching were not by persuasion of words of wisdom, but by demonstration of the Rukha and of power, 5 so that your faith would not be by the wisdom of men, but by the power of Alaha. 6 Now we speak wisdom among the mature [ones], not the wisdom of this world, nor of the authorities of this world who come to nothing, 7 but we speak the wisdom of Alaha in a mystery, which was hidden and [which] Alaha determined beforehand, from before the ages, for our glory. 8 Not one of the authorities of this world knew, for if they had known it, they would not have crucified the Lord of glory. 9 But as it is written: The eye has not seen and the ear has not heard and into the heart of man has not entered what Alaha has prepared for those who love him.10 But Alaha has revealed [it] to us by his Rukha, for the Rukha searches everything, even the deep [things] of Alaha. 11 For who is the man who knows what is in a man, except the spirit of the man that [is] in him? So also, no man knows what is in Alaha, except the Rukha d’Alaha. 12 Now we have not received the spirit of the world, but the Rukha that is from Alaha, so that we would know the gifts that were given to us from Alaha, 13 which also we speak, not in the teaching of the words of the wisdom of men, but in the teaching of the Rukha and to spiritual men, we compare spiritual [things]. 14 For a man who is natural does not receive spiritual [things], for they are foolishness to him, and he is not able to know that which is judged spiritually. 15 Now the spiritual man judges everything and is judged by no one. 16 For who knows the mind of Marya to teach him? But we have the mind of Meshikha.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 3
And my brothers, I was not able to speak with you as with spiritual men, but as with carnal [ones] and as to babies in Meshikha. 2 I gave you milk to drink and I did not give you food, for you were not yet able [to eat]. But not even now are you able, 3 for you are yet in the flesh. For where there is among you envy and contention and divisions, behold, are you not carnal [ones] and are you walking in the flesh? 4 For when each one of you says, “I am of Paul,” and another says, “I am of Apollos,” behold, are you not carnal [ones]? 5 For who is Paul or who is Apollos, but the ministers by whose hands you believed and each one as Marya gave to him? 6 I planted and Apollos watered, but Alaha caused increase. 7 Therefore, he who plants is nothing, nor he who waters, but Alaha who causes increase. 8 Now he who plants and he who waters are one and each receives his wage according to his labor. 9 For we work with Alaha and you are the work of Alaha and the building of Alaha.10 And according to the grace of Alaha that was given to me, I laid the foundation as a wise master-builder, but another builds on it. Now everyone should consider how he will build on it. 11 For no one is able to lay another foundation other than this that is laid, which is Yeshue-Meshikha. 12 Now if anyone builds on this foundation, gold or Page 172 of 276

silver or precious stones or pieces of wood or grass or straw, 13 the work of everyone is revealed. For that day will reveal it, because it is revealed by fire. And the fire will distinguish the work of everyone, according to what it is. 14 And he who builds, whose work will endure, will receive his reward. 15 And he whose work will burn will suffer loss. Now he will escape, but so as from fire. 16 Do you not know that you are the temple of Alaha and [that] the Rukha d’Alaha lives in you? 17 And he who corrupts the temple of Alaha, Alaha will corrupt, for the temple of Alaha is holy, because you are [holy]. 18 No one should delude himself. He among you who thinks that he is wise in this world, should be foolish, so that he may become wise. 19 For the wisdom of this world is foolishness with Alaha, for it is written: He apprehends the wise in their craftiness. 20 And again [he says]: Marya knows the reasonings of the wise that they are fruitless. 21 Because of this, no one should boast in men, for everything is your own, 22 whether Paul or Apollos or Kipha or the world, whether life or death, whether present [things] or future [things], everything is your own. 23 And you are of Meshikha and Meshikha [is] of Alaha.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 4
So we should be regarded by you as ministers of Meshikha and stewards of the mysteries of Alaha. 2 Now then it is required in stewards that a man should be found faithful. 3 Now this is a little matter to me that I should be judged by you or by any man, since I do not even judge myself. 4 For I am guilty of nothing in myself, but I am not justified by this, for Marya is my judge. 5 Because of this, do not judge before the time until Marya comes, who will bring to light the hidden [things] of darkness and reveal the reasonings of the hearts. And then there will be praise to each one from Alaha. 6 Now these [things], my brothers, because of you I have decided concerning my own person and that of Apollos, so that by us you should learn not to think more than what is written and [that] no one should be elevated above his neighbor because of anyone. 7 For who has examined you or what do you have that you did not receive? And if you received, why are you boasting as one who did not receive? 8 Already you have been satisfied and you have grown rich and without us you have reigned. Oh that you had reigned, so that we would also reign with you! 9 For I think that Alaha has placed the apostles last, as though for death, since we have become a spectacle to the world and to angels and to men. 10 We are fools on account of Meshikha, but you are wise in Meshikha. We are weak and you are strong. You are glorified and we are despised. 11 Until this time, we are hungry and thirsty and are naked and are mistreated and we have no stable dwelling 12 and we labor, working with our hands. They despise us and we bless. They persecute us and we endure. 13 They revile us and we entreat them. We have become as the filth of the world and the refuse of all men until now. 14 I do not write these [things] to shame you, but as beloved sons, I am warning [you]. 15 For even if you have a large number of instructors in Meshikha, surely not many fathers, for in Yeshue-Meshikha I have fathered you by the gospel. 16 Therefore, I beg you to be like me. 17 Because of this, I sent you Timothy, who is my beloved son and faithful in Marya, that he would remind you of my ways that are in Meshikha, according to what I teach in all the churches. 18 Now some of you are puffed up, as though I am not coming to you. 19 But if Marya wills, I will come quickly to you, and I will know, not the word of those who elevate themselves, but their power. 20 For the kingdom of Alaha is not in word, but in power. 21 In what manner do you want [me to come]? Should I come to you with a rod or in love and with a humble spirit? Page 173 of 276

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 5
Actually, fornication has been reported among you and such fornication as this which is not even named among the heathen, insomuch that a son would take the wife of his father. 2 And you are puffed up and you did not rather sit in grief, that he who did this deed should be cut off from among you. 3 For while I am distant from you in body, yet I am spiritually near to you. I have already, as though present, judged him who did this, 4 that all of you should be gathered in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and I with you spiritually with the power of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 5 and [that] you should deliver this [one] to Satan for the ruin of his body, so that he will live spiritually in the day of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 6 Your boasting is not pleasing. Do you not know that a little leaven leavens the whole mass? 7 Purge from you the old leaven, so that you will be a new mass [of] unleavened bread. For our Passover is Meshikha, who was sacrificed on our behalf. 8 Because of this, we should celebrate the feast, not with old leaven and not with the leaven of wickedness and of bitterness, but with the leaven of purity and of holiness. 9 I wrote to you in a letter that you should not associate with fornicators. 10 Now I was not speaking about fornicators who are in this world or about wrong-doers or about extortioners or about idol worshipers, otherwise you would be required indeed to go out of the world. 11 But this [is] what I wrote to you, that if there is one who is called a brother and he is a fornicator or a wrong-doer or an idol worshiper or a reviler or a drunkard or an extortioner, you should not associate with one who is so, not even to eat bread. 12 For what [is it] to me to judge ones outside? You judge those who are within, 13 but Alaha judges the ones outside. You should cut off the wicked [one] from among you.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 6
Does anyone among you dare, when he has a dispute with his brother, to go to trial before the unrighteous and not before the holy [ones]? 2 Or do you not know that the holy [ones] will judge the world? And if the world is being judged by you, are you not worthy to judge judgments of small [things]? 3 Do you not know that you will judge angels? How much more these [things] that are of this world? 4 But if you have a dispute about a worldly issue, you should cause those who are despised in the church to sit in judgment for you. 5 Now I say [this] for a reproach to you. So do you not have even one wise [person] who is able to cause agreement between a brother and his brother? 6 But a brother is judged against his brother, and moreover, before those who do not believe! 7 Already therefore, you have condemned yourselves, because you have a dispute with one another. For why should you not be taken advantage of? And why should you not be defrauded? 8 But you take advantage of and you defraud even your brothers. 9 Or do you not know that wicked [ones] will not inherit the kingdom of Alaha? Do not err. Neither fornicators nor idolaters nor adulterers nor corrupt [ones] nor homosexuals10 nor wrong-doers nor thieves nor drunkards nor revilers nor extortioners, these will not inherit the kingdom of Alaha. 11 And these [things] have been in some of you, but you are washed and you Page 174 of 276
1

are made holy and you are justified in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and by the Rukha of our Alaha. 12 Everything is lawful to me, but everything is not profitable to me. Everything is lawful to me, but no one will have authority over me. 13 Food [is] for the stomach and the stomach [is] for food, but Alaha makes both void. Now the body [is] not for fornication, but for our Lord and our Lord for the body. 14 Now Alaha raised our Lord and raises us by his power. 15 Do you not know that your bodies are members of Meshikha? Should one take a member of Meshikha [and] make it a member of a prostitute? Let it not be so! 16 Or do you not know that he who joins to a prostitute is one body? For it is said: The two of them will be one flesh. 17 Now he who joins to our Lord becomes one spirit with him. 18 Flee from fornication. Every sin that a man may do is outside of his body. But he who commits fornication sins in his body. 19 Or do you not know that your body is the temple of the Rukha d’Qudsha that lives in you that you received from Alaha and [that] you are not your own? 20 For you are bought with a price. Therefore, glorify Alaha in your body and in your spirit, which are of Alaha.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 7
Now about those [things] that you wrote to me, it is good for a man not to touch a woman. 2 But because of fornication, a man should hold fast to his [own] wife and a woman should hold fast to her [own] husband. 3 A husband should pay to his wife the love that is owed. So also, the wife to her husband. 4 The wife [has] no authority over her body, but her husband. So also, the man [has] no authority over his body, but his wife. 5 Therefore, do not deprive one another, except when both of you consent for a time to be devoted to fasting and to prayer and return again to the same arrangement, so that Satan will not tempt you because of the desire of your body. 6 But this I say as though to weak [ones], not by commandment. 7 For I want all men to be like me in purity. But everyone is given a gift from Alaha, some in one manner and some in another. 8 But I speak to those who do not have wives and to widows, that it is profitable to them if they would remain like me. 9 But if they are not enduring, they should marry, for it is more profitable to take a wife than to burn with desire.10 But to those who have wives, I command, not I, but my Lord, that a wife should not separate from her husband. 11 And if she separates, she should remain without a man or she should be reconciled to her husband. And a man should not leave his wife. 12 But to the rest I say, I, not my Lord, if there is a brother who has a wife who is not a believer, yet she wants to live with him, he should not leave her. 13 And a woman who has a husband that does not believe, yet he wants to live with her, should not leave her husband. 14 For the husband who does not believe is made holy by the wife who is a believer, and the wife who is not a believer is made holy by the husband who believes. Otherwise, their children are impure, but now they are pure. 15 Now if one who does not believe separates, let him separate. A brother or sister is not bound in these [things]. Alaha has called us to peace. 16 For how do you know, wife, if you may give life to your husband? Or you, husband, [how] do you know if you may give life to your wife? 17 But each one as Marya has distributed to him and each as Alaha has called him, so he should walk. And so also, I am commanding all the churches. 18 If a man was called while circumcised, he should not return to uncircumcision. And if he was called in uncircumcision, he should not be circumcised. 19 For circumcision is not anything, neither uncircumcision, but the observances of the commandments of Alaha. 20 Everyone should remain in the calling in which he was called. 21 If you were called [being] a servant, it should not Page 175 of 276
1

concern you. But even if you are able to be freed, choose to work. 22 For he who was called in our Lord [being] a servant is a freeman of Alaha. So also, he who was called a free man is a servant of Meshikha. 23 You were bought with a price. You should not become servants of men. 24 Everyone, my brothers, should remain with Alaha in that [calling] in which he was called. 25 Now concerning virginity, I do not hold fast to a commandment from Alaha, but I give counsel as a man who has obtained mercy from Alaha to be faithful. 26 And I think that this is good, because of the urgency of time. [I think] that it is better for a man to be like this. 27 Are you bound with a wife? Do not seek a divorce. Are you divorced from a wife? Do not seek a wife. 28 Yet if you take a wife, you are not sinning. And if an unmarried woman gets married, she does not sin. Now those who are so will have trouble in the body, but I [want to] spare you. 29 And this I say, my brothers, that the time is now shortened, so that those who have wives should be as though they do not have [any], 30 and those who weep, as not weeping, and those who rejoice, as not rejoicing, and those who buy, as not acquiring, 31 and those who are occupied with this world, not outside of what is just for use, for the fashion of this world passes away. 32 Because of this, I desire for you to be without anxiety, for he who does not have a wife is concerned with the one who is his Lord, how he should please his Lord. 33 And he who has a wife, cares about the world, how he should please his wife. 34 Now there is also a difference between a wife and an unmarried woman. She who is not married is concerned with her Lord, so that she will be holy in her body and in her spirit. And she who has a husband is concerned with the world, how she should please her husband. 35 Now I say this for your own advantage. I am not laying a snare for you, but rather that you may be faithful toward your Lord in a pleasing manner, while not being concerned with the world. 36 But if a man thinks that he is mocked by his unmarried [daughter] who is past her time and he has not given her to a man and it is fitting that he should give her, he should do as he desires. He does not sin [if] she would be married. 37 But he who has firmly decided in his mind and is not compelled by the matter and has power over his will and so judges in his heart to keep his unmarried [daughter], he does well. 38 And therefore, he who gives his unmarried [daughter] does well. And he who does not give his unmarried [daughter] does very well. 39 A wife, while her husband lives, is bound by the Namusa. But if her husband should sleep, she is free to be [married] to whom she wants, only in our Lord. 40 But she is blessed if she should remain so, according to my own mind. And I am also convinced that the Rukha d’Alaha is in me.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 8
Now concerning the sacrifices of idols, we know that in all of us there is knowledge and knowledge makes [one] proud, but love builds. 2 Now if anyone thinks that he knows anything, he does not know anything yet, as he ought to know it. 3 But if anyone loves Alaha, this [one] is known by him. 4 Therefore, concerning the food of the sacrifices of idols, we know that an idol is nothing in the world and that there is no other Alaha, except one. 5 For although there are [those] who are called gods, either in heaven or on earth, as there are many gods and many lordships, 6 but to us ourselves, [there] is one Alaha, the Father, from whom [are] all [things] and by whom we are, and one Marya, Yeshue-Meshikha, by way of him [are] all [things] and we are also by way of him. 7 But not everyone has [this] knowledge, for there are some who in their conscience until now eat that which is sacrificed to idols. And because their conscience is Page 176 of 276
1

weak, it is defiled. 8 Now food does not bring us near to Alaha, for if we eat, we do not grow, and if we do not eat, we do not lack. 9 But watch, so that this authority of yours should not become a stumbling block to the weak.10 For if someone sees you in whom there is knowledge, that you are sitting to eat [in] the temple of idols, behold, is not his conscience, because he is weak, encouraged to eat what is sacrificed? 11 And he who is feeble, on account of whom Meshikha died, will be hurt by your knowledge. 12 And if you are injuring your brothers in this manner and you are wounding the consciences [of] the feeble, you are injuring Meshikha. 13 Because of this, if food causes offense to my brother, I will not eat flesh forever, so that I should not cause offense to my brother.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 9
Am I not a free man? Or am I not an apostle? Or have I not seen Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord? Or are you not my work in my Lord? 2 And if I am not an apostle to others, yet I am to you and you are the seal of my apostleship. 3 And my defense to those who judge me is this: 4 Is it not lawful for us to eat and to drink? 5 And is it not lawful for us to lead a sister with us, a wife, as the rest of the apostles and as the brothers of our Lord and as Kipha? 6 Or I only and Bar-Naba, do we not have the authority not to work? 7 Who is he who does military service at his own expense? Or who is he who plants a vineyard and does not eat from his fruit? Or who is he who tends the flock and does not eat from the milk of his flock? 8 Am I saying these [things] as a man? Behold, the Namusa also says these [things]. 9 For it is written in the Namusa of Mushe: You should not muzzle the ox that threshes. Is it a concern to Alaha about oxen? 10 On the contrary, it is known that because of us he said [it] and because of us it was written, because the plowman ought to plow for hope and he who threshes for the hope of harvest. 11 If we have sown [things] of the Rukha among you, is it a great [thing] if we reap [things] of the body from you? 12 And if others have authority over you, ought we not [to have] more? Yet we have not used this authority, but we have endured everything, so that we would not hinder the gospel of Meshikha in anything. 13 Do you not know that those who serve in the sanctuary are sustained from the sanctuary and those who serve at the altar have a portion of the altar? 14 So also, our Lord commanded that those who are preaching his gospel should live from his gospel. 15 But I have not used one of these [things] and I have not written because of this, that it would be so [done] to me, for it is better for me that I should indeed die, than that anyone should make my boasting void. 16 For although I preach, I have no boasting, for necessity is laid on me and woe to me if I do not preach! 17 For if I do this willingly, I have a reward, but if not willingly, I am entrusted with a stewardship. 18 What then is my reward? [It is] that when I am preaching, I make the gospel of Meshikha without cost and I do not use the authority that he gave me in the gospel. 19 For although I am free from all [things], I have subjected myself to everyone, that I may gain many. 20 And with the Yehudaye I was as a Yehudaya, that I would gain Yehudaye, and with those who are under the Namusa, I was as those under the Namusa, so that I would gain those that are under the Namusa. 21 And to those who have no Namusa, I was as without the Namusa (although I am not without the Namusa to Alaha, but in the law of Meshikha), so that I would also gain those who are without the Namusa. 22 I was with the weak [ones] as weak, so that I would gain the weak. I am all [things] to everyone, so that I may give life to everyone. 23 And I am doing this in order to be a participant of the gospel. 24 Do you not know that those who run in a contest all run, Page 177 of 276
1

but one receives the victory? So, run that you may obtain. 25 Now everyone who participates in a contest controls his mind in every way. And those are running to receive a crown that is corruptible, but we, one that is incorruptible. 26 Therefore, I so run, not as for something unknown, and I so fight, not as one who beats the air, 27 but I subdue my body and I subject [it], so that when I have preached to others, I myself will not be rejected.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 10
But I want you to know, my brothers, that our fathers were all under the cloud and all passed through the sea 2 and all were immersed by way of Mushe in the cloud and in the sea 3 and all ate of the same food of the Rukha 4 and all drank of the same drink of the Rukha, for they were drinking from the rock of the Rukha that came with them and that rock was Meshikha. 5 But with many of them Alaha was not well pleased, for they fell in the wilderness. 6 Now these [things] were an example for us, so that we should not lust after evil [things] as they lusted. 7 And neither should we be worshipping idols, as some of them also worshipped, as it is written: The people sat to eat and to drink and they rose up to play. 8 Neither should we commit fornication, as some of them committed fornication, and they fell in one day, twenty-three thousand. 9 And we should not tempt Meshikha, as some of them tempted, and serpents destroyed them.10 Neither should you murmur, as some of them murmured, and were destroyed by the hands of the Violator. 11 Now all these [things] that happened to them were for our example and it was written for our instruction, on whom the end of the ages has come. 12 Therefore, he who thinks that he stands should watch, so that he does not fall. 13 No temptation has come on you, except of men, but Alaha is faithful, who will not allow you to be tempted more than what you are able, but will make a way out for your temptation, so that you will be able to endure [it]. 14 Because of this, my beloved [ones], flee from the worship of idols. 15 I am speaking as to the wise. You judge what I am saying. 16 That cup of thanksgiving that we bless, is it not the fellowship of the blood of Meshikha? And that bread that we break, is it not the fellowship of the body of Meshikha? 17 As that bread is one, so all of us are one body, for all of us have taken from that one bread. 18 Look at Israyel who are in the flesh. Do not those who eat the sacrifices become participants of the altar? 19 Therefore, what am I saying? That an idol is anything or a sacrifice of an idol is anything? No. 20 But what the heathen sacrifice, they sacrifice to demons and not to Alaha. And I do not want you to be participants with demons. 21 You are not able to drink the cup of our Lord and the cup of demons and you are not able to participate with the table of our Lord and with the table of demons. 22 Or are we especially provoking our Lord to jealousy? Are we stronger than him? 23 Everything is lawful to me, but not everything is profitable. Everything is lawful for me, but not everything builds up. 24 No one should seek his own [things], but everyone also [should seek] the [things] of his neighbor. 25 Everything that is sold in the marketplace, eat without a question on account of conscience, 26 for the earth is of Marya in its fullness. 27 But if one of the heathen invites you and you want to go, eat everything that is set before you without a question on account of conscience. 28 But if anyone should say to you that this is that which is sacrificed, you should not eat, because of him who told you and on account of conscience. 29 Now the conscience I speak [of] is not your own, but his who told [you]. For why is my liberty judged by the conscience of others? 30 If I apply grace, why am I reproached for what I give thanks? 31 Therefore, whether you eat or drink or do anything, do Page 178 of 276
1

everything to the glory of Alaha. 32 Be without offense to Yehudaye and to Armaye and to the church of Alaha, 33 even as I please everyone in everything and I do not seek what is profitable to me, but what is profitable to many, that they may have life.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 11
Be like me, as also I am in Meshikha. 2 Now I commend you, my brothers, that in everything you are mindful of me and you hold fast the commandments, even as I delivered [them] to you. 3 Now I want you to know that the head of every man is Meshikha and the head of the woman is the man and the head of Meshikha is Alaha. 4 Every man who prays or prophesies while his head is covered dishonors his head. 5 And every woman who prays or prophesies while her head is uncovered dishonors her head, for she is on a level with her whose head is shaven. 6 For if a woman is not covered, she should also be shorn. But if it is disgraceful for a woman to be shorn or to be shaven, she should be covered. 7 For a man ought not to cover his head, because he is the likeness and glory of Alaha, but the woman is the glory of the man. 8 For a man is not from the woman, but the woman from the man, 9 for neither was the man made for the woman, but the woman for the man.10 Because of this, the woman is obliged to have authority on her head, because of the angels. 11 Nevertheless, the man [is] not outside of the woman, nor the woman outside of the man in our Lord. 12 For as the woman [was] from the man, so also the man [was] by way of the woman and everything is from Alaha. 13 Judge among yourselves, for yourselves. Is it proper for a woman to pray to Alaha while her head is uncovered? 14 Does not even nature teach you that it is a shame for a man when his hair grows long? 15 And [for] a woman, it is a glory to her when her hair is abundant, because her hair is given to her for a covering. 16 But if anyone contends about these [things], we have no custom as this and not for the church of Alaha. 17 Now this which I command [is]not as though I am praising you, because you have not progressed, but rather you have fallen behind. 18 For in the first place, when you are gathered in the church, I hear that there are divisions among you and I believe some [of these things]. 19 For there are also going to be contentions among you, that those who are approved among you may be known. 20 Then when you are gathered, you do not eat and drink as is proper for the day of our Lord. 21 But each man eats his meal beforehand and it happens [that] one is hungry and one is drunk. 22 Do you not have houses [in] which you may eat and drink? Or do you despise the church of Alaha and shame those who do not have? What can I say to you? Should I praise you in this? I do not praise [you]. 23 For I have received from our Lord what I committed to you, that our Lord Yeshue in that night [in] which he was betrayed took bread 24 and blessed [it] and broke [it] and said, “Take, eat, this is my body, that is broken on your behalf. Do so for my memorial.” 25 Likewise, after they had eaten, he also gave the cup and said, “This cup is the new covenant in my blood. Do so, whenever you drink, for my memorial.” 26 For whenever you eat this bread and drink this cup, you call to remembrance the death of our Lord until his coming. 27 Therefore, whoever eats of the bread of Marya and drinks from his cup and is not worthy, he is indebted to the blood of Marya and to his body. 28 Because of this, a man should examine himself and then eat from this bread and drink from this cup, 29 for he who eats and drinks from it, being unworthy, eats and drinks condemnation to himself, because he has not discerned the body of Marya. 30 Because of this, many among you [are] sick and weak and many are asleep. 31 For if we judge ourselves, we are not judged. 32 But when we are judged by our Page 179 of 276
1

Lord, we are indeed instructed, so that we should not be condemned with the world. 33 From now on, my brothers, when you are gathered to eat, wait for one another. 34 And he who is hungry should eat in his house, so that you will not be gathering together to condemnation. Now concerning the rest, I will charge you when I come.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 12
Now about spiritual [things], my brothers, I want you to know 2 that you were heathens and were led to idols that have no distinct voice. 3 Because of this, I make known to you that there is no one who speaks by the Rukha d’Alaha and says that Yeshue is cursed. And neither is anyone able to say that Yeshue is Marya, except by the Rukha d’Qudsha. 4 And there are distributions of gifts, but the Rukha is one. 5 And there are distributions of services, but Marya is one. 6 And there are distributions of powers, but Alaha is the one who works all in everyone. 7 Now the manifestation of the Rukha is given to each one as it is profitable for him. 8 There is a word of wisdom that is given to him by the Rukha, now for another, a word of knowledge by the same Rukha, 9 for another, faith by the same Rukha, for another, gifts of healing by the same Rukha,10 now for another, miracles, now for another, prophecy, now for another, discerning of spirits, now for another, kinds of tongues, now for another, the interpretation of tongues. 11 Now all these [things] the one Rukha works and distributes to everyone as he wills. 12 For as the body is one and there are many members in it and all the members of the body, although they are many, are one body, so also [is] Meshikha. 13 For all of us also are immersed in one spirit into one body, whether Yehudaya or Armaya, whether slave or free men. And all of us drink of one Rukha. 14 For also the body is not one member, but many. 15 For if the foot should say, “Because I am not the hand, I am not a part of the body,” because of this, is it not a part of the body? 16 And if the ear should say, “Because I am not the eye, I am not a part of the body,” because of this, is it not a part of the body? 17 For if all the body were eyes, where would the hearing be? And if all of it were hearing, where would the smelling be? 18 But now Alaha has placed every one of the members in the body, as he willed. 19 Now if they were all one member, where would the body be? 20 But now, there are many members, but it is one body. 21 The eye is not able to say to the hand, “You are not necessary to me.” Nor is the head able to say to the feet, “You are not necessary to me.” 22 But more, there is a necessity for those members that are thought to be weak. 23 And to those that we think are despised in the body, we give more honor. And for those that are modest, we make more decoration. 24 Now those members that we have that are honored do not require honor. For Alaha has joined together the body and he has given more honor to the member who is least, 25 so that there would not be division in the body, but rather [that] all the members would care for one another equally, 26 so that when one member was hurt, all of them would suffer, and if one member was praised, all the members would be praised. 27 Now you are the body of Meshikha and members in your place. 28 For Alaha set in his church, first apostles, after them, prophets, after them, teachers, after them, workers of miracles, after them, gifts of healing and helpers and leaders and kinds of tongues. 29 [Are] all of them apostles? [Are] all of them prophets? [Are] all of them teachers? [Are] all of them doers of miracles? 30 Do all of them have gifts of healing? Do all of them speak in tongues? Or do all of them interpret? 31 Now if you are zealous about the best gifts, I will also show you a way that is of more value.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13
If I should speak in every tongue of men and with [tongues] of angels and not have love, I would be brass that sounds or a cymbal that gives out noise. 2 And if I would have prophecy and I would know all mysteries and all knowledge and if I would have all faith so that I could move a mountain and I do not have love, I am nothing. 3 And if I would feed the poor all that I have and if I would deliver my body to be burned and I do not have love, I am not profiting anything. 4 Love is long-suffering and kind. Love does not envy. Love is not ruffled and is not puffed up 5 and does not do that which is shameful and does not seek its own and is not enraged and does not think what is evil, 6 does not rejoice in wickedness, but rejoices with truthfulness. 7 [Love] endures everything, believes everything, hopes all, bears all. 8 Love never fails. For prophecies will be made void and tongues will be silent and knowledge will be made void. 9 For we know in part and we prophesy in part.10 Now when what is completed comes, then what is partial will be made void. 11 When I was a child, I spoke as a child and I thought as a child and I reasoned as a child. But when I became a man, I stopped these [things] of youth. 12 Now as in a mirror, we see in an illustration, but then face to face. Now I know in part, but then I will know as I am known. 13 For there are these three that remain, faith and hope and love, but the greatest of these is love.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 14
Pursue love and be zealous about the gifts of the Rukha, but especially to prophesy. 2 For he who speaks in a tongue does not speak to men, but to Alaha, for no one understands anything that he speaks, but spiritually he speaks a mystery. 3 Now he who prophesies speaks to men edification and encouragement and comfort. 4 He who speaks in a tongue builds himself up and he who prophesies builds up the church. 5 Now I am desiring that all of you would speak in tongues and especially that you would prophesy. For greater is he who prophesies than he who speaks in a tongue, unless he interprets. Now if he interprets, he edifies the church. 6 And now, my brothers, if I come to you and speak with you in tongues, what am I profiting you, unless I speak with you either by revelation or by knowledge or by prophecy or by teaching? 7 For even those things that have no life and give out sound, whether flute or harp, if they do not make a distinction between one tone and the other, how is what is sung or what is played known? 8 And if the trumpet should sound a sound that is not distinct, who will prepare for the battle? 9 Likewise also, if you speak a message in a tongue and it will not be interpreted, how is what you spoke known? You will be as if you are speaking to the air.10 For behold, there are many kinds of tongues in the world and there is not one of them without meaning. 11 But if I do not know the significance of the sound, I will be a barbarian to him who speaks, and also he who speaks will be a barbarian to me. 12 Likewise also, because you are zealous of the gifts of the Rukha, seek to excel for the building up of the church. 13 And he who speaks in a tongue should seek to interpret [it]. 14 For if I was to pray in a tongue, my spirit prays, but my understanding is without fruit. 15 What then should I do? I will pray in my spirit and I will pray also with my understanding. And I Page 181 of 276
1

will sing in my spirit and I will sing with my understanding also. 16 Otherwise, if you bless spiritually, how will he who fills the place of the unlearned say “Amen” at your thanksgiving, because he does not know what you said? 17 For you are blessing well, but your associate is not built up. 18 I thank Alaha that I speak in tongues more than all of you. 19 But in the church I desire to speak five words with my understanding, so that I would also teach others, rather than a great number of words in a tongue. 20 My brothers, do not be children in your minds. But rather, be babies to evil [things] and be mature in your minds. 21 In the Namusa it is written: With a strange speech and with another tongue I will speak with this people. Even so, they will not hear me, says Marya. 22 Then tongues are placed for a sign, not to believers, but to those who do not believe. And prophecies are not to those who do not believe, but to those who believe. 23 If therefore all the church is gathered and all would speak in tongues and unlearned [ones] or those who do not believe should enter, will they not say, “These [people] are crazy”? 24 And if all of you would prophesy and an unlearned [one] or one who does not believe enters, he is examined by all of you and reproved by all of you 25 and the hidden [things] of his heart are revealed. And then he will fall on his face and will worship Alaha and will say, “Truly Alaha is with you.” 26 Therefore, my brothers, I say that when you are gathered, whoever of you has a psalm should speak. And he who has a teaching and he who has a revelation and he who has a tongue and he who has an interpretation, all of them should be for building up. 27 And if someone speaks in a tongue, two should speak and at the most three. And they should speak one by one and [that] one should interpret. 28 And if there is not one to interpret, he who speaks in a tongue should keep silent in the church and should speak to himself and to Alaha. 29 And the prophets should speak, two or three, and the rest should discern. 30 And if [something] is revealed to another while he sits, the first should be silent. 31 For all of you can prophesy one by one, so that everyone may learn and everyone may be comforted. 32 For the spirit of the prophets is subject to the prophets, 33 because Alaha is not [one] of confusion, but of peace, as in all the churches of the holy [ones]. 34 Your wives should be silent in the church, for they are not allowed to speak, but they are to be subject, as the Namusa also says. 35 And if they want to learn anything, they should ask their husbands at home, for it is a shame that wives should speak in the church. 36 Did the word of Alaha go out from you? Or did it only arrive to you? 37 Now if one of you thinks that he is a prophet or that he is [prophesying] of the Rukha, he should acknowledge that these [things] that I write to you are the commandments of our Lord. 38 Now if someone does not know, he will not know. 39 Therefore, my brothers, earnestly desire to prophesy and to speak in tongues. Do not hold back. 40 Now everything should be [done] with decency and order.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 15
Now I make known to you, my brothers, the gospel that I preached to you and [that] you received and in which you stand 2 and by which you have life. With what word I preached to you, you remember, unless you have believed fruitlessly. 3 For I committed to you from the first according to what I received, that Meshikha died for our sins, as it is written, 4 and that he was buried and rose after three days, as it is written. 5 And he appeared to Kipha and after him, to the twelve. 6 And after that, he appeared to more than five hundred brothers together, many of whom remain until now, yet some of them sleep. 7 And after these, he appeared to Yaquv and after him, to all the apostles. 8 And last of all, he appeared to me also, as one of an untimely birth. 9 For I Page 182 of 276
1

am the least of the apostles and am not worthy to be called an apostle, because I persecuted the church of Alaha.10 But by the grace of Alaha, I am what I am. And his grace that is in me was not fruitless. But I worked more than all of them, not I, but his grace that is with me. 11 Whether I, therefore, or they, so we preach and so you have believed. 12 And if Meshikha is preached that he rose from the dead, how are there some among you who say [that] there is no resurrection of the dead? 13 And if there is no resurrection of the dead, not even Meshikha has been raised. 14 And if Meshikha did not rise, our preaching is fruitless. Your faith [is] also fruitless. 15 And we are also found [to be] false witnesses of Alaha, because we have witnessed about Alaha that he raised Meshikha, when he did not raise [him] up. 16 For if the dead do not rise, not even Meshikha has been raised. 17 And if Meshikha did not rise, your faith is void and you are still in your sins 18 and doubtless also, those who sleep in Meshikha have perished. 19 And if in this life only we hope in Meshikha, we are most miserable of all men. 20 But now Meshikha has risen from the dead and has become the first of those asleep. 21 And as by way of a man came death, so also by way of a man came the resurrection of the dead. 22 For as in Adom all men die, so also in Meshikha all live, 23 each in his order. Meshikha was the first [and] after that, those who are of Meshikha at his coming. 24 And then will be the end, when he delivers the kingdom to Alaha the Father, when every ruler and every authority and all powers cease. 25 For he is going to reign, until he places all his enemies under his feet. 26 And the last enemy, death, will be abolished. 27 For he has subjected all under his feet. But when he says that everything has been made subject to him, it is evident that it is apart from him who subjected all to him. 28 And when everything is subjected to him, then the Son will be made subject to the one who subjected all to him, so that Alaha will be all in all. 29 And if not, what will those who are immersed do for the dead, if the dead do not rise? Why are they immersed? For the dead? 30 And why do we also stand in danger in every hour? 31 I swear by your boasting that I have in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, my brothers, that I am dying daily. 32 If as among men I was thrown to the beasts in Ephesus, what did I gain, if the dead do not rise? Let us eat and drink, for tomorrow we will die. 33 Do not err. Evil conversations corrupt good minds. 34 Stir up your heart justly and do not sin, for there are some who do not have the knowledge of Alaha. I am speaking to your shame. 35 One of you will say, “How do the dead rise? And in what body will they come?” 36 Fool! The seed that you sow does not live unless it dies. 37 And what you sow, you are not sowing that body that it is going to be, but the naked kernel of wheat or of barley or of the rest of the grains. 38 Now Alaha gave it a body as he willed and to each one of the grains its natural body. 39 Now every body is not the same, for the body of a man is one [kind] and another of a beast and another of a bird and another of a fish. 40 And there are heavenly bodies and there are earthly bodies, but the glory of the heavenly is one [kind] and another of the earthly. 41 And the glory of the sun is one [kind] and the glory of the moon [is] another and the glory of the stars another and [one] star is greater than [another] star in glory. 42 So also [is] the resurrection of the dead. They are sown in corruption. They are raised without corruption. 43 They are sown in disgrace. They are raised in glory. They are sown in weakness. They are raised in power. 44 It is sown a natural body. It rises a spiritual body. For there is a physical body and there is a spiritual body. 45 So also it is written: Adom, the first man, became a living soul. And the last Adom [became] a life-giving spirit. 46 But the spiritual was not first, but the natural and then the spiritual. 47 The first man [was] dust from the earth. The second man [was] Marya from heaven. 48 As he was [of] dust, so also [are those of] dust. And as he who was from heaven, so also [are] the heavenly [ones]. 49 And as we have worn the likeness of him who is from dust, so we will wear the likeness of him who is from heaven. 50 And I am saying this, my brothers, that flesh and blood cannot inherit the kingdom of Page 183 of 276

heaven, nor [can] corruption inherit incorruption. 51 Behold, I am telling you a mystery. Not all of us will sleep, but all of us will be changed, 52 suddenly, as the twinkling of an eye, at the last trumpet sounding, and the dead will rise without corruption and we will be changed. 53 For this [one] that was going to be corrupted will put on incorruption. And this [one] that [was going to] die will put on immortality. 54 Now when this [one] that is corrupted puts on incorruption, and this [one] that dies, immortality, then the saying will happen that is written: Death is swallowed in victory. 55 Where is your sting, death? Or where is your victory, grave? 56 Now the sting of death is sin and the power of sin is the Namusa. 57 But blessed [be] Alaha who gives us the victory by way of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 58 Therefore, my brothers and my beloved [ones], be steadfast and do not be moved, but excel always in the work of Marya, knowing that your labor is not fruitless in Marya.

I CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 16
Now concerning that which is gathered for the holy [ones], as I commanded to the churches of the Galatians, so you should do also. 2 On every first of the week, each of you in his home should lay aside and keep what he has prepared [to give], so that when I come, then collections will not occur. 3 And when I come, I will send those whom you choose with a letter to carry your grace to Urishlem. 4 And if the situation is proper for me to also go, they may go with me. 5 Now I will come to you when I have crossed over from the Macedonians, for I will cross over Macedonia. 6 And perhaps also I will remain with you or winter with you, so that you may escort me to wherever I may go. 7 For I do not want to see you now as I pass by the road. For I am trusting to remain a time with you, if my Lord allows me. 8 Now I will remain in Ephesus until Pentecost, 9 for a great door has opened to me that is full of opportunities and the adversaries are many.10 Now if Timothy should come to you, see that he may be with you without fear, for he does the work of Marya as I [do]. 11 Therefore, no one should despise him, but should accompany him in peace, so that he may come to me, for I am waiting for him with the brothers. 12 Now about Apollos, my brothers, I begged him much to come to you with the brothers and it may be [his] desire was not to come to you, but when he will have an opportunity, he will come to you. 13 Watch and stand in the faith. Act mature. Be strong. 14 And all your affairs should be [done] with love. 15 Now I beg you, my brothers, concerning the house of Stephanas, because you know that they are the first[fruit] of Achaia and have committed themselves to the service of the holy [ones], 16 that you should also listen to those who are so and to everyone who works hard with us and helps. 17 Now I am rejoicing at the arrival of Stephanas and of Fortunatus and of Achaicus, because what you have neglected regarding me, they have filled, 18 for they have refreshed my spirit and yours. Therefore, acknowledge those who are likewise. 19 All the churches that are in Asia greet you. Aquila and Priscilla greet you much in our Lord with the church that is in their house. 20 All the brothers greet you. Greet one another with a holy kiss. 21 [This] greeting [is] in the handwriting of my own hand, Paul. 22 Whoever does not love our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha will be cursed. Our Lord comes. 23 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with you. 24 And my love [be] with all of you in Meshikha Yeshue.

II CORINTHIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha by the will of Alaha, and Timothy, a brother, to the church of Alaha that is in Corinth and to all the holy [ones] that are in all Achaia: 2 Grace [be] with you and peace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 Blessed be Alaha, the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, the Father of mercies and the Alaha of all comfort, 4 he who comforts us in all our pressures, so that we would also be able to comfort those who are in all pressures with that comfort [with] which we are comforted by Alaha. 5 For as the sufferings of Meshikha are increased in us, so also by way of Meshikha our comfort also is increased. 6 Now even if we are pressured, it is for your comfort and [if] we are pressured, [it is] for your life and if we are comforted, [it is] on account of you. You should be comforted and have an earnest care to endure the sufferings that we also suffer. 7 And our hope for you is steadfast, for we know that if you are participants in the sufferings, you are also participants in the comfort. 8 Now we want you to know, our brothers, about the pressure that we had in Asia. We were greatly pressured beyond our strength, to the point that our lives were about to end. 9 And we resigned ourselves to death, that we should not have confidence in ourselves, but in Alaha who raises the dead [and it was]10 he who rescued us from violent deaths. And we trust that he will rescue us again 11 with the aid of your prayer for us, that his gift toward us may be a blessing that is done on behalf of many and many will give thanks to him for us. 12 For our boasting is this, the testimony of our mind, that we have conducted ourselves in the world in simplicity and in purity and in the grace of Alaha and not in the wisdom of the flesh and especially toward you yourselves. 13 We do not write anything else to you, but these [things] that you know [and] also acknowledge. And I trust that you will acknowledge [them] to the end, 14 as even you have acknowledged in part that we are your boasting, as also you are ours in the day of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 15 And in this confidence I wanted to come to you before, so that you would doubly receive grace, 16 and [I wanted] to pass by you [on the way] to the Macedonians and to come to you again from Macedonia and [so that] you would accompany me to Yehuda. 17 This [thing] therefore that I had determined, did I determine [it] hastily? Or perhaps are these [things] that I decided of the flesh? Because it is proper that there should be yes, yes, and no, no. 18 Alaha is faithful, so that our word to you was not yes and no. 19 For the Son of Alaha, Yeshue-Meshikha, who was preached to you by way of us, by me and by Silvanus and by Timothy, was not yes and no, but was yes in him. 20 For all the promises of Alaha in him, in Meshikha, are yes. Because of this by way of him, we give an “Amen” to the glory of Alaha. 21 Now Alaha establishes us with you in Meshikha, who anointed us 22 and has sealed us and has placed the downpayment of his Rukha in our hearts. 23 And I give testimony before Alaha concerning myself that I did not come to Corinth in order to spare you, 24 not because we are lords of your faith, but we are helpers of your joy, for you stand by faith.

And I determined this in myself, that I would not come to you again with sadness. 2 For if I cause you sadness, who will make me rejoice, but he whom I made sad? 3 And [I determined] that I would write to you this, so that when I come, you will not make me sad, those who ought to make me rejoice. And I am confident about all of you, that my joy is [the joy] of all of you. 4 And from great distress and from anguish of heart I wrote to you these [things] with many tears, not that you should be sad, but that you would know the abundant love that I have for you. 5 And if anyone has caused sorrow, he has not caused sorrow to me [only], but almost to all of you, lest the word should be heavy for you. 6 And this reproof from many is sufficient for him. 7 And from now on the contrary, you ought to forgive him and to comfort him, so that he who is such should not be swallowed up in excessive sorrow. 8 Because of this, I am begging you to confirm your love with him. 9 For because of this, I have also written [you], so that I would know with proof if you are being obedient in everything.10 Now whom you forgive, I also [forgive]. For also what I forgave whom I forgave because of you, I forgave in the presence of Meshikha, 11 so that Satan should not take advantage of us, for we know his devices. 12 Now when I came to Troas with the gospel of Meshikha and a door was opened to me by Marya, 13 I had no rest in my spirit, because I did not find Titus, my brother. So I left them and went to the Macedonians. 14 Now thanks be to Alaha who always brings to pass triumph for us in Meshikha and by us makes evident the fragrance of the knowledge of him in every place. 15 For we are a sweet fragrance in Meshikha to Alaha with those who live and with those who are lost. 16 To those [who are lost], [we are] a fragrance of death to death, and to them [who live], a fragrance of life to life. And who is equal to these [things]? 17 For we are not like the rest who dilute the words of Alaha, but as in truth and as from Alaha, we speak before Alaha in Meshikha.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 3
Are we starting again from the beginning to show you who we are? Or do you, as others, need letters of recommendations to be written to you concerning us? Or [do we need] you to write [and] recommend us? 2 Now you are our own letter that is written on our heart[s] and known and read aloud by everyone. 3 For you know that you are a letter of Meshikha that was ministered by us, written not with ink, but by the Rukha of the living Alaha, not on tablets of stone, but on tablets of the heart of flesh. 4 And we have such confidence in Meshikha toward Alaha, 5 not that we are sufficient to think anything as though from ourselves, but our power is from Alaha, 6 who made us worthy to be ministers of the new covenant, not by writing, but by the Rukha, for writing kills, but the Rukha gives life. 7 Now if the ministering of death was engraved in writing on stones (and was so magnificent that the sons of Israyel were not able to look on the face of Mushe because of the glory of his face) which ended, 8 how then will not the ministering of the Rukha be more glorious? 9 For if the ministering of condemnation had glory, how much more will the ministering of justification be increased in glory? 10 For that which was glorified [was] as if not worthy of glory, in comparison to this surpassing glory. 11 For if what has ended was glorious, that which remains will be increasingly glorious. 12 Therefore, because we have this hope, we conduct ourselves more boldly, 13 and [we are] not as Mushe, who put a veil over his face so that the sons of Israyel would not look at the fullness of that which was abolished. 14 But they were blinded in their understanding, for until this day when the Old Page 186 of 276
1

Covenant is read, that veil rests on them and it is not known that it is abolished by Meshikha. 15 And until this day when Mushe is read, a veil is lying over their heart[s], 16 yet when one of them turns to Marya, the veil is lifted from him. 17 Now Marya is the Rukha and where the Rukha d’Marya [is], there is freedom. 18 But all of us, with open faces, see the magnificence of Marya as in a mirror and we are being changed into that likeness from glory to glory, as by Marya, the Rukha.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 4
Because of this, we are not weary in this ministry that we are holding, according to the mercies that are on us. 2 But we have rejected the hidden [things] of shame and we do not walk with cunning, nor are we deceitful with the word of Alaha, but we show ourselves by the evidence of the truth to all the minds of men before Alaha. 3 Now if our gospel is hidden, it is hidden to those who are lost, 4 those whose minds the god of this age has blinded so that they would not believe, in order that the light of the gospel of the glory of Meshikha, who is the likeness of Alaha, should not dawn on them. 5 For we do not preach ourselves, but Meshikha Yeshue our Lord, and [we preach] of ourselves that we are your servants because of Yeshue, 6 because Alaha, who said: From darkness light should shine, has shined in our hearts, so that we would be enlightened with the knowledge of the glory of Alaha in the presence of Yeshue-Meshikha. 7 Now we have this treasure in a utensil of earth that the greatness of the power would be from Alaha and not from us. 8 For in everything, we are pressured, but are not overwhelmed. We are harassed, but are not overcome. 9 We are persecuted, but are not left alone. We are thrown down, but are not destroyed.10 We always bear the death of Yeshue in our bodies, so that the life of Yeshue may also be revealed in our bodies. 11 For if we are alive, we are delivered to death because of Yeshue, so that the life of Yeshue may also be revealed in this mortal body. 12 Now death works in us, yet life in you. 13 Even we, therefore, have one Rukha of faith, as it is written: I believed. Because of this, I also spoke. We believe. Because of this, we also speak. 14 And we know that he who raised our Lord Yeshue will also raise us by way of Yeshue and will bring us with you to him. 15 For everything is on account of you, so that as grace increases by way of many, thanksgiving would multiply to the glory of Alaha. 16 Because of this, we are not weary, for even if our outer man is corrupted, yet that which [is] inside is renewed day by day. 17 For the adversity of this time, being very small and little, prepares for us a great glory, without end forever, 18 because we do not rejoice in these [things] that are seen, but in these that are not seen. For [the things] that are seen are for a time, but [the things] that are not seen are eternal.
1

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 5
For we know that if our house that is on earth, this of the body, should be broken down, yet we have a building that is from Alaha, a house that is not by the work of hands, eternal in heaven. 2 For also because of this, we groan and long to be clothed with our house that is from Page 187 of 276
1

heaven, 3 since indeed when we are clothed, we will [not] be found naked. 4 For while we are now in this house, we groan from its burden and we do not desire to put it off, unless we should be clothed over it, so that its mortality would be swallowed by life. 5 And he who prepares us for this is Alaha, who has given us the downpayment of his Rukha. 6 Therefore, because we know and are persuaded that while we live in the body, we are absent from our Lord 7 (for we walk by faith and not by sight). 8 Because of this, we are confident and we long to be absent from the body and to be with our Lord. 9 And we are diligent that whether we are absent [ones] or dwellers [in our body], we would please him.10 For all of us are going to stand before the judgment seat of Meshikha that each one may be rewarded [for] what was done by him in his body, whether of good or of evil. 11 Therefore, because we know the fear of our Lord, we persuade men and we are revealed to Alaha and I think that also we are revealed to your own minds. 12 We do not praise ourselves again to you, but we give you cause to be boasting about us to those who are boasting in appearances and not in heart. 13 For if we are foolish, [it is] for Alaha. And if we are ordained, [it is] for you. 14 For the love of Meshikha compels us to determine this, that one died on behalf of everyone, so then everyone is dead in him. 15 And he died on behalf of everyone, so that those who live should not live for themselves, but for him who died and rose for them. 16 And from now on, we do not know anyone in the flesh. And even if we have known Meshikha in the flesh, yet now we do not know [him]. 17 Everyone who is in Meshikha is therefore a new creation. Old [things] have passed away 18 and everything has become new from Alaha, who reconciled us to himself in Meshikha and has given us the ministry of reconciliation. 19 For Alaha was in Meshikha, the one who reconciled the world with his majesty and did not count to them their sins. And he placed in us the word of reconciliation. 20 Therefore, we are ambassadors on behalf of Meshikha and [it is] as if Alaha were begging you by way of us on behalf of Meshikha. Therefore, we beg [you], “Be reconciled to Alaha.” 21 For that one who had not known sin, he has made [to be] sin on your account, that we would become the justification of Alaha in him.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 6
And as helpers, we beg you, that the grace of Alaha that you received should not be fruitless in you. 2 For he has said: In an acceptable time, I have answered you and in the day of salvation, I have helped you. Behold, now [is] an acceptable time and behold, now [is] the day of salvation. 3 Give no one a cause for stumbling in anything, so that there will be no blemish in our ministering. 4 But in everything we should show ourselves that we are ministers of Alaha with much endurance, in trials, in necessities, in difficulties, 5 in beatings, in imprisonments, in riots, in labor, in watching, in fasting, 6 by purity, by knowledge, by long-suffering, by kindness, by the Rukha d’Qudsha, by love without deceit, 7 by the truthful word, by the power of Alaha, by the armor of justification that is on the right hand and on the left, 8 in honor and in disgrace, in good report and in a struggle, as [between] deceivers and true. 9 As though unknown, yet we are known, as though dying, yet behold, we are living, as chastised, yet we are not dying,10 as though having sorrow, yet we are rejoicing always, as though poor, yet we are causing many to increase, as though not having anything, yet we are holding everything. 11 Our mouth is opened to you, [oh] Corinthians, and our heart is enlarged. 12 You are not pressured by us, but you are pressured by your bowels. 13 Now I speak as to children, pay me my debt that is for you. Expand your love to Page 188 of 276
1

me. 14 And you should be not yoke-fellows to those who do not believe. For what fellowship has justification with wickedness or what communion has light with darkness? 15 Or what agreement has Meshikha with Satan? Or what part has he who believes with him who does not believe? 16 And what alliance has the temple of Alaha with demons? But you are the temple of the living Alaha, as it is said: I will live with them and I will walk with them and I will be their Alaha and they will be my people. 17 Because of this, go out from among them and be separated from them, says Marya. And do not come near unclean [things] and I will receive you, 18 and I will be a father to you and you will be sons and daughters to me, says Marya, the Almighty.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 7
Therefore, because we have these promises, my beloved [ones], we should purify ourselves from all defilement of the flesh and of the spirit and we should serve with holiness with reverence for Alaha. 2 Bear [with us], our brothers, we have caused no one harm, we have corrupted no one, we have wronged no one. 3 I am not speaking to make you guilty, for I have said before that you are in our heart, to die and to live together. 4 I have great boldness to you and I have great boasting in you and I am full of comfort and a great amount of joy abounds in me, in all my trials. 5 For even after we came to the Macedonians, we had no rest for our body, but we were pressured in everything, from without, conflict, and from within, fear. 6 But Alaha, who comforts the meek, comforted us by the coming of Titus, 7 and not only by his coming, but also by the rest [with] which he was refreshed by you. For he told us about your love to us and about your grief and your zeal for us. And when I heard it, my joy was great. 8 For although I made you sad by a letter, I am not sorry, even though I was sorry. For I see that the letter, even if it made you sad for a time, 9 yet produced great joy for me, not because it made you sad, but because your sorrow brought you to repentance. For you had godly sorrow, so that you should lack in nothing from us.10 For sorrow because of Alaha produces repentance of the soul that is not reversed and turns to life, but the sorrow of the world produces death. 11 For behold this, that you were distressed because of Alaha. How much did it produce in you? Diligence and defense and anger and fear and love and zeal and vindication. And in everything you have shown that you are being pure in the matter. 12 Now let this be [so]. For I wrote to you, not because of the wrong-doer, not even because of that one who was wronged, but so that your diligence because of us would be known before Alaha. 13 Because of this, we were comforted and with our comfort, we rejoiced greatly in the joy of Titus, for his spirit was refreshed with all of you, 14 so that I was not ashamed of what I boasted to him about you. But as we spoke everything [with] truthfulness with you, so also our boasting to Titus was found [to be] with truthfulness. 15 His compassion has also increased greatly concerning you, when he recalls the obedience of all of you [and] that you received him with reverence and with trembling. 16 I rejoice that in everything I am confident about you.

But we make known to you, our brothers, the grace of Alaha that was given by the churches of the Macedonians, 2 that in the great trial of their adversity, there was an increase to their joy and the depth of their poverty was increased by the riches of their simplicity. 3 For I testify that, according to their ability and greater than their ability, voluntarily [in] themselves, 4 they begged us with much begging to take part in the grace of the service of the holy [ones]. 5 And not as we had expected, but they gave themselves first to our Lord and also to us by the will of Alaha, 6 so that we requested Titus, that as he had begun, so he would complete this grace with you also. 7 But according as you increase in everything, in faith and in word and in knowledge and in all diligence and in our love to you, so you should increase in this grace also. 8 I do not actually command you, but by the exhortation of your fellow [believers], I am testing the genuineness of your love. 9 For you know the grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who on account of you became poor when he was rich, so that you by his poverty would be made rich.10 Now I highly recommend to you this that is profitable to you, because a year ago, you began not only to will, but also to do. 11 But now, complete with action what you willed, that as you have an eagerness to will, so you would fulfill [it] in action out of what you have. 12 For if there is a willingness, so he is accepted according to what he has, not according to what he does not have. 13 For it is not that others should have relief and you [should have] pressure, 14 but [that] you should be in balance at this time, that your abundance may be for their need, so that also their abundance may be for your need, so that there will be a balance. 15 As it is written: He who received much did not have excess and he who received little did not lack. 16 But thanks be to Alaha who put this care for you in the heart of Titus. 17 For he received our exhortation and because he was very concerned, he went out to you willingly. 18 And we sent with him our brother, him whose praise in the gospel [is] in all the churches. 19 So also, he was especially chosen by the churches to go out with us with this grace that is ministered by us for the glory of Alaha and for our own encouragement. 20 And by this we were avoiding [a situation] that no one should put a blemish on us regarding this high position that is ministered by us. 21 For we were careful [to do] the right things, not before Alaha only, but also before men. 22 And we also sent with them our brother who by us has always in many [things] been proven that he is diligent, but now he is especially diligent with the great confidence that [he has] about you. 23 Therefore, if Titus [is asked about], he is my companion and assistant among you, or if our other brothers, they are sent [ones] of the churches of the glory of Meshikha. 24 From now on, in the presence of all the churches, show them a demonstration of your love and our boasting about you.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 9
Now concerning the service of the holy [ones], it would be excessive if I wrote to you. For I know the goodness of your mind and because of this, I boasted of you to the Macedonians that Achaia was ready a year ago and your zeal has excited many. 3 Now I sent the brothers, so that our boasting that we boasted of you would not be empty about this matter, that as I said, you would be prepared, 4 that the Macedonians would not come with me and find you not ready and we should be embarrassed (should we not say that you would be embarrassed) by the boasting that we boasted. 5 Because of this, I was concerned to request these my brothers, that they should come before me to you and prepare the bounty that you were previously advised to have prepared, so it is as a bounty, not as greediness. 6 Now this [I say], “He who sows sparingly will
2 1

Page 190 of 276

also reap sparingly and he who sows bountifully will reap bountifully, 7 everyone according to what is in his mind, not from sadness or from constraint, for Alaha loves a joyous giver.” 8 Now all grace comes by the hands of Alaha who causes [it] to increase in you, so that always, in everything, you will have what is sufficient for you and will increase in every good work. 9 As it is written: He has distributed and given to the poor and his justification is valid forever. 10 Now he who gives seed to the sower and bread for food will give and will multiply your seed and will increase the fruit of your justification, 11 so that you may be enriched in everything in all simplicity, so that thanksgiving to Alaha is completed by way of us, 12 because the work of this service not only supplies the needs of the holy [ones], but also increases with much thanksgiving to Alaha. 13 For on account of the trial of this service, we glorify Alaha that you have subjected yourselves to the acknowledgment of the gospel of Meshikha and [that] you have shared fully in your simplicity with them and with everyone. 14 And they offer prayer for you with great love, because of the abundance of the grace of Alaha that is concerning you. 15 Now thanks be to Alaha for his unspeakable gift.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 10
Now I, Paul, beg you by the quietness and by the meekness of Meshikha, that although in presence, I am meek toward you, yet being absent, I am confident about you. 2 Now I beg you, that when I come I may not be compelled by the confidence that I have to be bold (as I consider [it]) to those who think that we are walking according to the flesh. 3 For although we walk in the flesh, we do not serve of the flesh. 4 For the equipment of our service is not of the flesh, but of the power of Alaha and by it, we overcome rebellious strongholds. 5 And we pull down reasonings and all pride that elevates [itself] against the knowledge of Alaha and we lead captive all thoughts to the obedience of Meshikha. 6 And we are prepared to execute justice on those who are disobedient, when your obedience is finished. 7 Are you looking on appearances? If anyone is confident of himself that he is of Meshikha, let him know of himself that as he is of Meshikha, so also are we. 8 For if I also boast more about the authority that our Lord gave to me, I am not ashamed, because he gave [it] to us for your building up and not for your tearing down. 9 Now I hold back, so that I should not be considered that I especially terrified you by my letters,10 because there are some who say, “The letters are weighty and very hard, but his bodily presence is weak and his speech, worthless.” 11 But he who speaks so should consider this, that as we are in the word of our letter while we are absent, so also we are in action when we are present. 12 For we dare not value or compare ourselves with those who are boasting in themselves, but because those are comparing themselves with themselves, they do not understand. 13 But we will not boast more than our measure, but according to the measure of the boundary that Alaha distributed to us, so that we should also reach all the way to you. 14 For we are not stretching ourselves as if we were not reaching you, for we reach all the way to you with the gospel of Meshikha. 15 And we are not boasting beyond our measure about the labor of others, but we have the hope that when your faith is grown, we will be magnified by you as our measure and [that] it would be increased 16 also to preach far beyond you. Not in the measure of others do we boast about things that are prepared. 17 But he who boasts, let him boast in Marya, 18 for he who praises himself, that [one] is not approved, but he whom Marya will praise.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 11
Oh that you would bear with me a little that I may speak foolishly, only indeed bear with me! 2 For I am jealous of you with the jealousy of Alaha, for I have espoused you to a husband, a pure young woman, whom I present to Meshikha. 3 But I fear, that even as the serpent lead Khawa astray by his deceit, so your minds will be corrupted from the simplicity that is to Meshikha. 4 For if he who came to you had preached to you another Yeshue whom we had not preached or you had received another spirit that you had not received or another gospel that you had not accepted, you would have been persuaded well. 5 For I think that I am no less than those apostles who most excel. 6 For although I am unskilled in my speech, yet not in my knowledge, but in everything we are being made evident to you. 7 Or did I actually cause offense when I humbled myself so that you would be elevated and [when I] freely preached to you the gospel of Alaha? 8 And I robbed other churches and received payments for your service. 9 And when I came among you and had lack, I was not burdensome to any of you, for the brothers who came from Macedonia supplied my need and in everything I kept myself and I keep [myself], so that I would not burden you.10 The truth of Meshikha is in me, that this boasting will not be stopped by me in the regions of Achaia. 11 Why? Because I do not love you? Alaha knows. 12 But this that I am doing, I will also do, so that I may cut off the occasion of those who seek an occasion, so that they who are boasting in this may be found as we [are]. 13 For these are false apostles and crafty workers and they liken themselves to apostles of Meshikha 14 and there is not [anything] to marvel at in this. For if Satan became an imitator of an angel of light, 15 it is not a great thing, if his ministers also become imitators of ministers of justification, whose end will be according to their works. 16 But again I speak. Should anyone think of me as though I am a fool and if otherwise, receive me as a fool, that also, I may boast a little? 17 What I am speaking, I do not speak in our Lord, but as in folly, in this matter of boasting. 18 Because many boast in the flesh, I will also boast, 19 for you are content to hear fools, since you are wise. 20 And you adhere to him who enslaves you and to him who devours you and to him who takes from you and to him who elevates himself over you and to him who strikes you on your face. 21 I am speaking as if in shame. I am speaking as if we were weak through foolishness, for in everything [in] which anyone is bold, I am also bold. 22 If they are Evraye, I am also. If they are Isralaya, I am also. If they are the seed of Avraham, I am also. 23 If they are ministers of the Meshikha (I am speaking foolishly), I am greater than them, in labor more than them, in beatings more than them, in prisons more than them, in deaths, many times. 24 Of the Yehudaye, five times I was beaten, each time forty [lashes] lacking one. 25 Three times I was beaten with rods, one time I was stoned, three times I was shipwrecked, a day and a night I was without a ship in the sea, 26 in many journeys, in danger of rivers, in danger of robbers, in danger from my relatives, in danger from the Gentiles. I was in danger in the cities, I was in danger in the wilderness, in danger in the sea, in danger from false brothers, 27 in toil and in weariness, in much watching, in hunger and in thirst, in much fasting, in cold and in nakedness, 28 besides familiar [things] and the crowd that is around me daily and my care on behalf of all the churches. 29 Who was weakened and I was not weakened? Who was offended and I did not burn? 30 If it is necessary to boast, I will boast in my weaknesses. 31 Alaha, the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, blessed forever, knows that I do not lie. 32 In Damascus, the commander of the army of Aretas, the king, was guarding the city of the Damascenes to arrest me. 33 And they let me down from the wall from a window in a basket Page 192 of 276

and I escaped from his hands.

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 12
To boast is necessary, but not profitable, for I will come to visions and to revelations of our Lord. 2 I knew a man in Meshikha fourteen years ago (but whether with a body or without a body I do not know, Alaha knows) who was caught up to the third heaven. 3 And I knew this man (but whether with a body or without a body I do not know, Alaha knows) 4 who was caught up to paradise and heard unspeakable words that are unlawful for a man to speak. 5 About this I will boast, but I will not boast about myself, except in weaknesses. 6 For if I desired to boast, I would not be crazy, for I am speaking the truth. But I refrain, so that no one should think of me more than what he sees in me and what he hears from me. 7 And so that I should not be elevated by the abundance of the revelations, a thorn to my flesh was delivered to me, a messenger of Satan, to buffet me, so that I should not be elevated. 8 And concerning this, three times I requested from my Lord that it would go away from me. 9 And he said to me, “My grace is sufficient for you, for my power is perfected in weakness.” Therefore, I will gladly boast in my weak nesses, so that the power of Meshikha will rest on me.10 Because of this, I have pleasure in weaknesses, in reproaches, in adversities, in persecutions, in distresses that are on behalf of Meshikha, for at what time I am weak, then I am strong. 11 Behold, I became a fool in my boasting, because you pressured me. For you ought to give testimony about me, because I am no less than the apostles who most excel, even though I was nothing. 12 I performed the signs of the apostles among you with all patience and with exploits and with wonders and with mighty works. 13 For in what were you made less than other churches, except in this, that I did not burden you? Forgive me this fault. 14 Behold, this is the third time that I am ready to come to you, and I will not burden you, because I do not seek yours, but you, for children ought not to lay up treasures for parents, but parents for their children. 15 And I will both cheerfully pay the expenses and also give myself for you, although the more I love you, the less you love me. 16 And perhaps I did not burden you, but like a cunning man, I robbed you by trickery. 17 Why? [Was it] by way of another man that I sent to you [and] was greedy of [the things] concerning you? 18 I begged Titus [to go to you] and I sent the brothers with him. Was Titus greedy of anything belonging to you? Did we not walk in one spirit and in the same footsteps? 19 Do you again suppose that we should make a defense to you? Before Alaha, we speak in Meshikha, and all these [things], my beloved, [are] for your building up. 20 For I fear, will I come to you and not find you as I desire and be found by you even as you do not desire? [Will there be] contention and envying and anger and obstinacy and slandering and murmuring and pride and confusion? 21 When I come to you, will my Alaha humble me and will I mourn over many who have sinned and have not repented from the uncleanness and from the fornication and from the wantonness that they committed?
1

II CORINTHIANS CHAPTER 13
1

This is the third time that I will come to you: By the mouth of two or three witnesses, Page 193 of 276

every word will be established. 2 I have told you previously and again I tell you beforehand (as if I was with you the second time, I tell you and now also while I am absent, I write to those who have sinned and to the others) that if I come again, I will not refrain, 3 because you seek proof that it is Meshikha who speaks by me, who has not been weak among you, but powerful among you. 4 For although he was crucified in weakness, yet he is alive by the power of Alaha. And if we are weak with him, yet we are alive with him by the power of Alaha that is in you. 5 Examine yourselves, whether you stand fast in the faith. Prove yourselves. Or do you not acknowledge that Yeshue-Meshikha is in you? And if [you do] not, you are rejected. 6 But I am trusting that you will know that we are not rejecting [you]. 7 But I beg Alaha that there may be no evil in you, so that our proof may be seen, nevertheless, that you may do good [things] and [that] we may be as rejected. 8 For we are not able to do anything contrary to truthfulness, but for truthfulness. 9 Now we rejoice when we are weak and you are strong. For this we also pray, that you would be mature.10 Because of this, when I am absent I write these [things], so that when I come, I should not act severely according to the authority that my Lord gave me for your building up and not for your tearing down. 11 From now on, my brothers, rejoice and be mature and be comforted and there will be agreement and harmony among you and the Alaha of love and of peace will be with you. 12 Greet one another with a holy kiss. 13 All the holy [ones] greet you. 14 The peace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and the love of Alaha and the fellowship of the Rukha d’Qudsha [be] with all of you. Amen.

GALATIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul an apostle, not from men and not by way of man, but by way of Yeshue-Meshikha and Alaha his Father, who raised him from the dead, 2 and all the brothers who are with me to the churches that are in Galatia: 3 Grace and peace [be] with you from Alaha the Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 4 who gave himself for our sins to deliver us from this evil world, according to the will of Alaha our Father, 5 to whom [be] glory forever and ever. Amen. 6 I am amazed at how quickly you are being turned from Meshikha, who called you by his grace, to another gospel 7 that is not [a true gospel]. But there are some who are troubling you and want to pervert the gospel of Meshikha. 8 Now even if we or an angel from heaven should declare to you [anything] outside of what we have declared to you, he will be cursed. 9 As I said before and now I am saying again, “If anyone declares to you [anything] outside of what you have received, he will be cursed.”10 For now do I persuade men, or Alaha? Or do I seek to please men? For up to now, if I had pleased men, I would not have been a servant of Meshikha. 11 But I make known to you, my brothers, that the gospel that was declared by me was not from man. 12 For also I did not receive it and learn it from man, but [I received it] by the revelation of Yeshue-Meshikha. 13 For you have heard of my previous way of life that was in Yehudayutha, that I had greatly persecuted the church of Alaha and ruined it. 14 And I excelled in Yehudayutha more than many [of] my contemporaries who were my countrymen. And I was very zealous in the teaching of my fathers. 15 Now when it pleased him, who had set me apart from the womb of my mother and called me by his grace, 16 to reveal his Son in me, that I should declare him among the Gentiles, I did not immediately reveal [this] to flesh and blood 17 and I did not go to Urishlem to the apostles who were before me. But I went to Arabia and returned again to Damascus. 18 And after three years, I went to Urishlem to see Kipha and remained with him [for] fifteen days. 19 But I did not see the rest of the apostles, except Yaquv, the brother of our Lord. 20 Now these [things] that I write to you, behold, before Alaha, I am not lying! 21 After these [places], I came to the regions of Suriya and of Cilicia. 22 And the churches in Yehuda that were in Meshikha did not know me personally. 23 But they had heard this only, “He who previously was persecuting us, behold, now is preaching the faith that he was overthrowing in a previous time.” 24 And they were glorifying Alaha on account of me.
1

GALATIANS CHAPTER 2
Now after fourteen years, I went up again to Urishlem with Bar-Naba and took Titus with me. 2 Now I went up by revelation and I made known to them the gospel that I was preaching among the Gentiles. And I showed it to those who were considered to be something privately, lest somehow I had run or would run in vain. 3 Even Titus, who was an Armaya with me, was not compelled to be circumcised. 4 Now because of false brothers who had entered among us to spy on the freedom that we have in Yeshue-Meshikha in order to enslave us, 5 not Page 195 of 276
1

even for a minute did we submit to their oppression, so that the truth of the gospel would remain with you. 6 Now those who were considered to be something (now what they were did not concern me, for Alaha does not have respect of persons) now these did not add anything to me. 7 But [it was] otherwise, for they saw that I had been entrusted with the gospel of the uncircumcision, as Kipha had been entrusted with the circumcision. 8 For he who worked in Kipha in the apostleship of the circumcision also worked in me in the apostleship of the Gentiles. 9 And when they knew of the grace that was given to me, Yaquv and Kipha and Yukhanan, those who were considered to be pillars, gave to me and to Bar-Naba the right hand of fellowship that we [should work] among the Gentiles and they among the circumcision. 10 [They asked] only that we should remember the poor and I was concerned to do this. 11 But when Kipha came to Antioch, I reproved him to his face, because they were offended by him. 12 Before some men came from Yaquv, he ate with the Gentiles, but after they came, he withdrew and separated himself, because he was afraid of those who were from the circumcision. 13 And the rest of the Yehudaye also submitted to this with him, so that even Bar-Naba was led to respect persons. 14 And when I saw that they were not walking correctly in the truth of the gospel, I said to Kipha in front of all of them, “If you who are a Yehudaya live as a heathen and not yehudaith, how can you compel the Gentiles to live Yehudaith?” 15 For we, who by nature are Yehudaye and are not sinners of the Gentiles, 16 because we know that a man is not justified by the works of the Namusa, but by the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha, we also believe in Yeshue-Meshikha, so that we may be justified by the faith of Meshikha and not by the works of the Namusa, because by the works of the Namusa, no flesh is justified. 17 But if while we are seeking to be justified by Meshikha, we are also found [that] we are sinners, then is Yeshue-Meshikha the minister of sin? Let it not be so! 18 For if I build up again those [things] that I have broken down, I show about myself that I am a transgressor of the commandment. 19 For by the Namusa I died to the Namusa that I would live for Alaha 20 and I am crucified with Meshikha. And from now on, I am not living, but Meshikha lives in me, and this [life] that I am now living in the flesh, I am living by the faith of the Son of Alaha, who loved us and gave himself for us. 21 I am not denying the grace of Alaha. For if justification is by way of the Namusa, Meshikha died without cause.

GALATIANS CHAPTER 3
Oh stupid Galatians! Who has made you envious? For behold, as a portrait, Yeshue-Meshikha being crucified was portrayed before your eyes. 2 I want to know this only from you. Did you receive the Rukha by the works of the Namusa or by the hearing of faith? 3 Are you so foolish that you began by the Rukha, yet now you are finishing in the flesh? 4 Have you endured all these [things] without result? But oh that [it were] without result! 5 Therefore, he who imparts the Rukha in you and works miracles among you [does he do these] by the works of the Namusa or by the hearing of faith? 6 In like manner, Avraham believed Alaha and it was counted to him for justification. 7 Therefore, know that those who are of faith are the sons of Avraham. 8 For because Alaha knew beforehand that the Gentiles would be justified by faith, he foretold [it] to Avraham, as the holy scripture says: All the Gentiles will be blessed in you. 9 So then, believers are blessed with Avraham, the believer.10 For those who are of the works of the Namusa are under the curse, for it is written: Cursed is everyone who will not do all that is written in this Namusa. 11 Now that a man is not justified to Alaha by the Namusa is evident, Page 196 of 276
1

because it is written: The just [one] will live by faith. 12 Now the Namusa was not of faith. But whoever will do those [things] that are written in it will live by them. 13 And Meshikha redeemed us from the curse of the Namusa and became a curse for us, for it is written: Cursed is everyone who is hung on a tree 14 that the blessing of Avraham would be on the Gentiles by Yeshue-Meshikha and [that] we would receive the promise of the Rukha by faith. 15 My brothers, I speak as among men, because a covenant of man that is established, no man sets aside or changes anything in it. 16 Now the promise was promised to Avraham and to his seed. And he did not say to him, “To your seeds” as to many, but to your seed as to one, who is Meshikha. 17 And this I say, that the covenant, which was previously established by Alaha in Meshikha, the Namusa, which was four hundred and thirty years after, is not able to set it aside and make the promise void. 18 Now if the inheritance was by the Namusa, then it was not by promise. But Alaha gave it to Avraham by promise. 19 Why then [was] the Namusa? It was added because of transgression until that seed should come to whom was the promise. And the Namusa was given by way of angels, by the hand of a mediator. 20 Now a mediator is not of one, but Alaha is one. 21 Therefore, is the Namusa opposite to the promise of Alaha? Let it not be so! For if a Namusa had been given that was able to give life, truly justification would have been from the Namusa. 22 But the scripture has confined everything under sin, so that the promise by the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha would be given to those who believe. 23 Now until faith came, the Namusa was guarding us, while we were confined from the faith that was going to be revealed. 24 Therefore, the Namusa was a tutor for us for Meshikha, that we would be justified by faith. 25 Now when faith came, we were not under tutors. 26 For all of you are sons of Alaha by the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha. 27 For those who were immersed in Meshikha have put on Meshikha. 28 There is neither Yehudaya nor Armaya, there is neither servant nor free man, there is neither male nor female, for all of you are one in yeshue-Meshikha. 29 And if you are of Meshikha, then you are the seed of Avraham and heirs in the promise.

GALATIANS CHAPTER 4
Now I am saying that as long as the heir [is] a child, he is no different from the servants, although he is lord of all. 2 But he is under guardians and stewards until the time that his father sets. 3 So also, while we were babies, we were made subject to the elements of the world. 4 But when the fulfillment of the time came, Alaha sent his Son. And he was from a woman and was under the Namusa, 5 so that he would redeem those who are under the Namusa and [that] we would receive adoption. 6 And now that you are sons, Alaha sent into your hearts the Rukha of his Son that calls, “Father, our Father.” 7 From now on, you are not servants, but sons, and if sons, [you are] also heirs of Alaha by way of Yeshue-Meshikha. 8 For then, when you did not know Alaha, you served those that by their nature are not gods. 9 But now that you know Alaha, or rather that you are known by Alaha, you have returned again to those weak and poor elements and desire to be made subject to them again.10 You observe days and months and times and years. 11 I am afraid that I have labored among you without result. 12 Become like me, because I have also been like you. My brothers, I am begging you. You have not offended me [in] anything. 13 For you know that in the weakness of my flesh, I declared the gospel to you at the first 14 and you did not despise or reject the temptation of my flesh, but you received me as a messenger of Alaha and as Yeshue-Meshikha. 15 Therefore, where is your happiness? For I testify concerning you Page 197 of 276

that if it had been possible, you would have picked out your eyes and given [them] to me. 16 Have I become an enemy to you, because I preached to you the truth? 17 They are not zealous of you for good, but they desire to confine you, so that you would be zealous of them. 18 Now it is good that you should be zealous in good [things] at all times and not only when I am with you. 19 [You are] my sons, those for whom I labor in birth again until Meshikha is formed in you. 20 And I wanted to be with you now and to change my report, because I am astonished at you. 21 Say to me, you who desire to be under the Namusa, do you not hear the Namusa? 22 For it is written, “Avraham had two sons, one from the bond woman and one from the free [woman].” 23 But the one from the bond woman was born according to the flesh and the one from the free [woman] was [born] according to the promise. 24 Now these [women] are illustrations of the two covenants. The one that is from Mount Sinai gives birth to bondage, which is Haygar. 25 For Haygar is the mountain of Sinai that is in Arabia and corresponds to this Urishlem and serves [in] bondage, she and her sons. 26 But that Urishlem above is the free [woman], who is our mother. 27 For it is written: Take delight, barren [woman] who bears not. And rejoice and shout [you] who have not labored in birth, because the sons of the desolate [woman] are many more than the sons of the married woman. 28 Now we, my brothers, like Iskhaq, are the sons of the promise. 29 And as then, he who was born by the flesh persecuted the one who [was born] by the Rukha, so also now. 30 But what does the scripture say? Throw out the bond woman and her son, because the son of the bond woman will not share an inheritance with the son of the free [woman]. 31 Therefore, my brothers, we are not sons of the bond woman, but sons of the free [woman].

GALATIANS CHAPTER 5
Stand fast, therefore, in the freedom [for] which Meshikha freed us and do not be subjected again with the yoke of bondage. 2 Behold, I, Paul, say to you, that if you should be circumcised, Meshikha does not profit you anything. 3 Now I testify again to everyone who is circumcised that he is a debtor to do the whole Namusa. 4 You have made Meshikha ineffectual, those who would be justified by the Namusa and you have fallen from grace.For we, by the Rukha that is from faith, wait for the hope of justification. 6 For in Meshikha Yeshue neither is circumcision anything nor uncircumcision, but faith that is matured by love. 7 You were running well. Who disturbed you to not be persuaded by the truth? 8 Your persuasion is not from the one who called you. 9 A little leaven leavens the whole lump.10 I am confident in you in our Lord that you will not think other things and [that] the one who troubled you will bear his judgment, whoever he is. 11 Now, my brothers, if I was still preaching circumcision, why am I persecuted? Has the offense of the cross ceased? 12 Oh that those who are troubling you would also be actually cut off! 13 Now you were called to freedom, my brothers. Only your freedom should not be an occasion for the flesh, but you should be serving one another in love. 14 For the whole Namusa is fulfilled in one word, in this: You should love your neighbor as yourself. 15 Now if you bite and devour one another, be careful that you are not devoured by one another. 16 But I say, “Walk by the Rukha and never serve the desire of the flesh.” 17 For the flesh desires what is opposed to the Rukha and the Rukha desires what is opposed to the flesh, and the two of them are opposites to each other, so that you are not doing what you want. 18 Now if you are led by the Rukha, you are not under the Namusa. 19 For the works of the flesh are known, which are fornication, uncleanness, filthiness, 20 the worship of idols, magic, animosity, contention, Page 198 of 276
1

jealousy, anger, insolence, divisions, discords, 21 envy, murder, drunkenness, rioting and all that are similar to these. And those who do these [things], as I told you before, even now I say that they will not inherit the kingdom of Alaha. 22 But the fruit of the Rukha is love, joy, peace, long-suffering, kindness, goodness, faith, 23 meekness, patience, concerning which the Namusa was not established. 24 Now those who are of Meshikha have crucified their flesh with all its passions and its desires. 25 Therefore, we should live by the Rukha and we should follow the Rukha. 26 And we should not be [seeking] empty glory, so that we ridicule one another and are jealous of one another.

GALATIANS CHAPTER 6
My brothers, if one of you should be overtaken in an offense, you who are spiritual should correct him with a humble spirit and you should be watchful so that you are not tempted also. 2 And bear the burden of one another, so that you may complete the law of Meshikha. 3 For if anyone thinks that he is something when he is not, he deceives himself. 4 But a man should examine his work and then his boasting will be privately to himself and not with others, 5 for everyone should carry his own load. 6 Now he who has heard the word should communicate to him who instructs him in all good [things]. 7 Do not err. Alaha is not mocked, for what a man sows, that he reaps. 8 He who sows in the flesh reaps decay from the flesh and he who sows spiritually will reap eternal life from the Rukha. 9 And when we do that which is good, we should not be weary. For the time will come when we will reap and we will not be weary. 10 Now therefore, while we have time, we should do good to everyone, especially to the household of faith. 11 See, I have written these writings to you with my hands. 12 Those who want to boast in the flesh are compelling you to be circumcised, only so that they would not be persecuted for the cross of Meshikha. 13 For not even those who are circumcised keep the Namusa, but rather they want you to be circumcised, so that they may boast in your flesh. 14 But [as] for me, I will have nothing to boast about except the cross of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, by whom the world is crucified to me and I am crucified to the world. 15 For neither circumcision is anything, nor uncircumcision, but a new creation. 16 And those who follow this path, peace and mercies will be on them and on the Israyel of Alaha. 17 So then, no one should pour trouble on me, for I bear the marks of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha in my body. 18 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with your spirit, my brothers. Amen.

EPHESIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha, by the will of Alaha, to those who are in Ephesus, holy [ones] and faithful [ones] in Yeshue-Meshikha: 2 Peace [be] with you and grace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 Blessed be Alaha, the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who has blessed us with all spiritual blessings in heaven in Meshikha, 4 even as he chose us beforehand in him, from before the foundations of the world, that we should be holy [ones] and without blemish before him. And in love, he marked us out beforehand for himself 5 and he adopted us in Yeshue-Meshikha, as was pleasing to his will, 6 that the glory of his grace would be glorified, which he has poured on us by way of his beloved [one], 7 in whom we have redemption and remission of sins by his blood, according to the wealth of his grace, 8 which he caused to abound in us with all wisdom and with all understanding. 9 And he made known to us the mystery of his will that he had determined beforehand to accomplish in him,10 in the administration of the fullness of times, that everything that is in heaven and in earth should be made new again in Meshikha. 11 And we were chosen in him, even as he marked us out beforehand and he desired, he who performs everything according to the purpose of his will, 12 that we, those who first trusted in Meshikha, should be for the esteem of his magnificence. 13 In him also, you heard the word of truthfulness, which is the gospel of your life, and in him, you believed and you were sealed with the Rukha d’Qudsha that was promised, 14 which is the guarantee of our inheritance to the redemption of those who have life and to the glory of his honor. 15 Because of this, behold, I also, since I heard of your faith that is in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and your love that is toward the holy [ones], 16 have not ceased to give thanks for you and to remember you in my prayers, 17 that the Alaha of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, the Father of glory, would give you the Rukha of wisdom and of revelation in his knowledge 18 and [that] the eyes of your hearts would be enlightened, so that you would know what is the hope of his calling and what is the wealth of the glory of his inheritance in the holy [ones] 19 and what is the abundance of the greatness of his power in us, in those who believe, according to the working of the might of his power. 20 [This is] he who worked in Meshikha and raised him from the dead and seated him at his right hand in heaven, 21 higher than all rulers and authorities and powers and lordships and higher than every name that is named, not only in this world, but in the coming [one] also. 22 And he subjected everything under his feet and he gave him who is higher than all [to be] the head of the church, 23 which is his body and the fullness of him who is filling all in all.

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 2
And [Alaha is filling] even you who were dead in your sins and in your transgressions, in which you had walked previously, according to the worldliness of this world and according to the will of the chief authority of the air and of that spirit that operates in the sons of disobedience. 3 We also were occupied in those deeds previously, in the desires of our flesh, and
2 1

Page 200 of 276

we were doing the will of our flesh and of our mind and we were the sons of wrath [as] fully as the rest. 4 But Alaha, who is rich in his mercies, because of his great love [with] which he loved us, 5 while we were dead in our sins, gave us life with Meshikha and, by his grace, redeemed us 6 and raised us with him and seated us with him in heaven in Yeshue-Meshikha, 7 so that he could show to the ages that are coming the greatness of the wealth of his grace and his goodness that is to us in Yeshue-Meshikha. 8 For by his grace we were redeemed by faith and this was not from yourselves, but is the gift of Alaha, 9 not from works, so that no one would boast.10 For we [are] his own creation, who are created in Yeshue-Meshikha for good works, those [works] which Alaha prepared previously that we should walk in. 11 Because of this, remember that you were previously Gentiles in the flesh and you were called the uncircumcision by that which is called the circumcision and is the work of the hands in the flesh. 12 And at that time, you were without Meshikha and you were aliens from the customs of Israyel and you were strangers to the covenant of the promise and you were without hope and without Alaha in the world. 13 But now, in Yeshue-Meshikha, you who previously were far have become near by the blood of Meshikha. 14 For he was our peace treaty, who made the two of them one and has broken down the wall that stood in the middle 15 and the conflict, by his flesh. And he brought to an end the Namusa of commandments with its commandments, so that [from] the two of them he would create in himself one new man, and he made a peace treaty. 16 And he reconciled the two of them with Alaha in one body and, by his cross, he destroyed the conflict. 17 And he came [and] he declared peace to you, [both] the far and the near, 18 because in him we both have access in one spirit to the Father. 19 From now on, you are neither strangers nor foreigners, but citizens who are holy [ones] and [of] the household of Alaha. 20 And you are built on the foundation of the apostles and of the prophets and Yeshue-Meshikha is the head of the corner of the building. 21 And in him the whole building is fit together and is growing into a holy temple in Marya, 22 while you also are built in him for a dwelling of Alaha spiritually.

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 3
Because of this, I, Paul, am a prisoner of Yeshue-Meshikha for you Gentiles, 2 even as you have heard of the administration of the grace of Alaha that was given to me among you, 3 that by revelation the mystery was made known to me (as I have written to you in few [words], 4 so that you may be able, while you are reading, to understand my knowledge that is in the mystery of Meshikha), 5 which in other generations was not made known to men, as that which now has been revealed to his holy apostles and to his prophets spiritually, 6 that the Gentiles should be his heirs and participants of his body and of the promise that was given in him, by way of the gospel, 7 of which I became a minister according to the gift of the grace of Alaha that was given to me by the working of his power. 8 To me, who am the least of all the holy [ones], this grace was given, that I should declare among the Gentiles the wealth of Meshikha that is untraceable 9 and [that] I should bring light to everyone what is the administration of the mystery that was hidden from the ages in Alaha, who created all [things],10 so that by way of the church, the extraordinary wisdom of Alaha would be made known to the rulers and to the authorities that are in heaven, 11 which [wisdom] he had prepared from the ages and has performed in Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord, 12 in whom we have boldness and access in the confidence of his faith. 13 Because of this, I am petitioning that I will not be weary in my trials that are for you, Page 201 of 276
1

because this is your glory, 14 and I bow my knees to the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 15 from whom all the family which is in heaven and on earth is named, 16 that he would allow you, according to the wealth of his glory, to be strengthened with power by his Rukha, that in your inner man 17 Meshikha would dwell in faith and in your hearts in love, as your root and your foundation becomes strong, 18 that you would be able to understand with all the holy [ones] what is the height and depth and length and breadth 19 and would know the greatness of the knowledge of the love of Meshikha and would be filled with all the fullness of Alaha. 20 Now to him who is able, by surpassing power, to do even more for us than what we ask and think, according to his power that is performed in us, 21 to him [be] glory in his church by Yeshue-Meshikha in all generations, forever and ever. Amen.

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 4
I, therefore, a prisoner in our Lord, beg you that you should walk as is proper for the calling that you were called, 2 with all humbleness of mind and quietness and long-suffering. And hold up one another in love 3 and be diligent to keep the alliance of the Rukha with the girdle of peace, 4 so that you will be in one body and by one Rukha, even as you are called in one hope of your calling. 5 For [there] is one Marya and one faith and one immersion 6 and one Alaha, the Father of all and above all and by all and in us all. 7 Now to each one of us is given grace according to the measure of the gift of Meshikha. 8 Because of this, it is said, He ascended to the height and captured captivity and gave gifts to men. 9 (Now what is it that he ascended, unless he had also first descended to the depths of the earth?10 He who descended is he who also ascended higher than all the heaven, that he would complete all.) 11 And he gave some apostles and some prophets and some evangelists and some pastors and some teachers, 12 for the maturity of the holy [ones], for the work of the ministry, for the building up of the body of Meshikha, 13 until we all become one in the faith and in the knowledge of the Son of Alaha and one mature man, in the measure of the standing of the fullness of Meshikha. 14 And we should not be babies, who are shaken and blown about by every wind of the deceitful teachings of men, who in their craftiness are plotting to deceive. 15 But we should be steadfast in our love, so that [in] everything of ours we may grow up in Meshikha, who is the head. 16 And from him the whole body is fit together and is knit together in all the joints, according to the gift that is given by measure to each member for the growth of the body, that its building up would be accomplished in love. 17 Now this I say and I bear witness in Marya, that from now on you should not walk as the rest of the Gentiles, who walk in the emptiness of their mind[s] 18 and are dark in their thoughts and are strangers from the life of Alaha, because there is no knowledge in them and because of the blindness of their heart[s], 19 those who have cut off their hope and have surrendered themselves to perversion and to the work of all uncleanness in their greediness. 20 But you did not so learn about Meshikha, 21 if truly you have heard him and by him you have learned, as truthfulness is in Yeshue. 22 But [you have learned] that you should strip off your former ways of life, that old man who was corrupted by the lusts of deceit, 23 and you should be renewed by the Rukha, that is, your minds. 24 And you should put on the new man, who was created by Alaha by justification and by the pardoning of truthfulness. 25 Because of this, strip off lying and speak [with] truthfulness, each one with his neighbor, for we are members of one another. 26 Be angry and do not sin and the sun should not go down on your anger. 27 And do not give place to the Accuser. 28 Page 202 of 276
1

And he who was stealing should no longer steal, but he should work with his hands and should do good [things], so that he may have to give to him who has need. 29 No hateful word should come out of your mouth, but that which is pleasing and useful for building up, so that it may give grace to those who hear. 30 And you should not grieve the sanctified Rukha d’Alaha, by whom you were sealed until the day of redemption. 31 All bitterness and wrath and anger and contention and reviling should be taken away from you with all wickedness. 32 And be kind to one another and merciful and be forgiving to one another, as Alaha in Meshikha forgave us.

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 5
Therefore, imitate Alaha as beloved sons. 2 And walk in love, as Meshikha also loved us and delivered himself up for us, an offering and a sacrifice to Alaha for a sweet smell. 3 But fornication and all uncleanness and greed should also especially not be named among you as is proper to holy [ones], 4 and neither obscenities nor words of foolishness or of reproach or of nonsense that are not necessary, but instead of these, [words of] thanksgiving. 5 But this you should know, that everyone who is a fornicator or unclean or greedy, who is an idol worshipper, does not have an inheritance in the kingdom of Meshikha and of Alaha. 6 [I say this], so that no one deceives you with empty words, for because of these [things] the wrath of Alaha will come on the sons of disobedience. 7 Therefore, do not become partners with them, 8 for you were first of all [in] darkness, but now you are light in our Lord. Therefore, so walk as sons of light, 9 for the effects of the light are in all goodness and justification and truthfulness. 10 And determine what is pleasing before our Lord 11 and do not fellowship with the works of darkness that have no [good] effects, but reprove them, 12 for what they do in secret is abominable even to speak, 13 for everything is exposed and is revealed by the light and everything that reveals is light. 14 Because of this, it is said, “Awake, sleeper, and rise up from the dead, and Meshikha will enlighten you.” 15 Therefore, see how you should walk accurately, not as fools, but as wise [ones] 16 who buy their opportunity, because the days are evil. 17 Because of this, do not be stupid, but understand what is the will of Alaha. 18 And do not be drunk with wine, in which is excess, but be filled with the Rukha, 19 and speak among yourselves with psalms and with hymns. And sing in your hearts to Marya with songs of the Rukha. 20 And give thanks always for everyone in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha to Alaha the Father. 21 And be subject to one another in the love of Meshikha. 22 Wives, be subject to your husbands as to our Lord, 23 because the man is the head of the wife, as also Meshikha is the head of the church and he is the life-giver of the body. 24 But even as the church is subject to Meshikha, so also wives [should be subject] to their husbands in everything. 25 Men, love your wives as also Meshikha loved his church and delivered himself up for it, 26 to make it holy and to cleanse it by the washing of water and by the word 27 and to establish the church for himself, being glorious and having no spot and no wrinkle and nothing like these, but rather to be holy [and] without blemish. 28 So it is right for men to love their wives as their [own] bodies, for he who loves his wife loves himself, 29 for no one ever hates his body, but nourishes it and cares for his own [body]. [It is] even as Meshikha [nourishes and cares] for his church, 30 because we are members of his body, and we are of his flesh and of his bones. 31 Because of this, a man should leave his father and his mother and should be joined to his wife and the two of them should become one flesh. 32 This mystery is great, but I am speaking about Meshikha and about his church. 33 Nevertheless, you also, each and every one of Page 203 of 276
1

you, should so have compassion for his wife as for himself and the wife should have respect for her husband.

EPHESIANS CHAPTER 6
Children, obey your parents in our Lord, for this [is] upright. 2 And this is the first commandment that has a promise: Honor your father and your mother, 3 that it may be well for you and your life may be long on the earth. 4 Parents, do not anger your children, but rear them in the instruction and in the teaching of our Lord. 5 Servants, be obedient to your masters that are in the flesh, with reverence and with trembling and with simplicity of heart, as to Meshikha, 6 not with what is seen by the eye as if you were pleasing men, but as servants of Meshikha, who are doing the will of Alaha. 7 And minister to them from your whole life in love, as to our Lord, and not as to men, 8 knowing that what someone does that is good will be rewarded from our Lord, whether he is a servant or a free man. 9 Also, you masters, so serve your servants. Forgive them an error, because you also know that your own Master is in heaven and there is no respect of persons with him.10 From now on, my brothers, be strong in our Lord and in the immensity of his power 11 and put on the whole armor of Alaha, so that you may be able to stand against the tactics of the Accuser, 12 because your struggle is not with flesh and blood, but with rulers and with authorities and with the possessors of this dark world and with the evil spirits that are under heaven. 13 Because of this, put on the whole armor of Alaha, so that you will be able to engage the Evil [one] and, being prepared in everything, you will stand firm. 14 Therefore, stand and gird up your waist with truthfulness and put on the breastplate of justification 15 and bind [as a sandal] on your feet the goodness of the gospel of peace. 16 And with these, take to you the shield of faith, by which you will be empowered with strength to quench all the fiery arrows of the Evil [one]. 17 And set on [your head] the helmet of redemption and take hold of the sword of the Rukha, which is the word of Alaha. 18 And with all prayers and with all petitions, pray at all times spiritually, and in prayer, be watchful in every season, praying continually and interceding for all the holy [ones], 19 [and] also for me, that the word may be given to me in the opening of my mouth, that I would boldly preach the mystery of the gospel, 20 for which I am its ambassador in chains, that with frankness I may speak, as I ought to speak it. 21 Now that you also may know about me and what I am doing, behold, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister in our Lord, will make known [these things] to you, 22 whom I sent to you especially for this, that you would know how [it is] with me and [that] he would comfort your hearts. 23 Peace [be] with our brothers and love with faith, from Alaha the Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 24 Grace [be] with all those who love our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha without corruption. Amen.

PHILIPPIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul and Timothy, servants of Yeshue-Meshikha, to all the holy [ones] who are in Yeshue-Meshikha, who are at Philippi, with the elders and ministers: 2 Grace [be] with you and peace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 I thank my Alaha for constant remembrance of you, 4 because in all my petitions that are for you and as I rejoice, I make intercession 5 for your fellowship that is in the gospel from the first day until now, 6 because I am confident about this, that he who has begun good works in you will complete [them] until the day of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 7 For so it is right for me to think about all of you, because you are established in my heart. And in my bonds and in my defense that is concerning the truth of the gospel, you are my partners in grace. 8 For Alaha is my witness, how I love you with the compassion of Yeshue-Meshikha. 9 And this I pray, that again your love may increase and grow in knowledge and in all spiritual understanding,10 so that you may distinguish those [things] that are profitable and [that] you may be pure, without offense in the day of Meshikha, 11 and [that] you may be full of the fruit of justification that is by Yeshue-Meshikha, to the glory and to the honor of Alaha. 12 Now I want you to know, my brothers, that my circumstance has increasingly led to advancement in the gospel, 13 so that even my bonds in Meshikha are publicized in all the Praetorium and to everyone else. 14 And many of the brothers who are in our Lord have become confident on account of my bonds and are increasingly bold to speak the word of Alaha without fear. 15 And some are preaching Meshikha out of envy and controversy, but others with good will and in love, 16 because they know that I am appointed for the defense of the gospel. 17 Now those who are preaching Meshikha with controversy are not [doing it] purely, but they hope to add pressure to my bonds. 18 And in this I rejoiced and am rejoicing, that in every way, whether in pretext or with truthfulness, Meshikha is preached. 19 For I know that these [things] will be found for life to me by your prayer and by the gift of the Rukha d’Yeshue-Meshikha, 20 since I am hoping and expecting that I will not be ashamed in anything, but with boldness (as at all times even so now), Meshikha will be magnified in my body, whether in life or in death, 21 for my life is Meshikha and if I die, I have gain. 22 Now if in this life of the flesh I also have the fruit of my works, I do not know what to choose. 23 For the two [choices] press closely on me. I desire to depart, so that I may be with Meshikha, and this would be very profitable for me. 24 But also, the matter concerning you urges me to remain in my body. 25 And this I confidently know, that I will wait and will remain for your joy and for the growth of your faith, 26 so that when I come again to you, your boasting that is in Yeshue-Meshikha alone will increase with me. 27 Conduct yourselves as is becoming to the gospel of Meshikha, so that if I come, I may see you and if I am distant, I may hear about you, that you are standing in one spirit and in one soul and [that] you are conquering together in the faith of the gospel. 28 And do not be shaken by anything from those who stand against us, [which is] the evidence of their loss and of your life. 29 And this is given to you by Alaha, that you would not only indeed believe in Meshikha, but also that you would suffer for him 30 and [that] you would endure the contest as you saw in me and now hear concerning me.

PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 2
Therefore, if you have encouragement in Meshikha or if [you have] consolation in love or if [you have] fellowship of the Rukha or if [you have] loving-kindness and mercies, 2 complete my joy, so that you will have one mind and one love and one soul and one purpose. 3 And do not do anything with controversy or with empty boasting, but with humbleness of mind. Everyone should count his associate as better than himself. 4 And a man should not be concerned for himself [only], but each one [should] also [be concerned] for his associate. 5 And think this in yourselves which Yeshue-Meshikha also [thought], 6 who, as he was in the likeness of Alaha, did not consider it extortion to be the equal of Alaha. 7 But he emptied himself and took on the likeness of a servant and was in the likeness of men and was found in fashion as a man. 8 And he humbled himself and became obedient until death, even the death of the cross. 9 Because of this, Alaha also elevated him highly and gave him a name that is greater than all names,10 that at the name of Yeshue every knee should bow that is in heaven and on earth and that is under the earth, 11 and every tongue should confess that Yeshue-Meshikha is marya, to the glory of Alaha his Father. 12 From now on, my beloved [ones], as you have been obedient at all times, not only when I was near to you, but [also] now that I am far from you, increasingly work the work of your life with reverence and with trembling. 13 For Alaha energizes you to will as well as to perform what you desire. 14 Do everything without murmuring and without division, 15 so that you will be innocent and without blemish, as pure sons of Alaha who are living in a perverted and crooked generation. And be seen among them as lights in the world, 16 so that you will be to them in place of life, for my glory in the day of Meshikha, so that I have not run at random nor worked hard fruitlessly. 17 But if I am offered for the sacrifice and the service of your faith, I am rejoicing and I am glad with all of you. 18 So also, rejoice and be glad with me. 19 Now I expect in our Lord Yeshue to send Timothy to you shortly, so that I may also have rest when I learn about you. 20 For I have no others here who are like myself, who earnestly care for your [affairs]. 21 For all seek themselves and not Yeshue-Meshikha. 22 But you know the proof of him, that as a son with his father, so he has served with me in the gospel. 23 I expect to send him to you shortly, when I see how [it is] with me. 24 And I trust in my Lord that I will also come to you shortly. 25 But now, a matter urges me to send Epaphroditus to you, a brother who is a helper and worker with me, but your own apostle and a minister for my need, 26 because he was longing to see all of you and was distressed, for he knew that you had heard that he was sick. 27 For he was indeed sick almost to death, but Alaha had mercy on him and not on him only, but also on me, so that I would not have distress on distress. 28 Therefore, I have sent him to you promptly, so that when you see him again, you would rejoice and [that] I would have a little refreshment. 29 Therefore, receive him in Marya with all joy and hold those who are so in honor. 30 For because of the work of Meshikha, he came near to death and despised danger regarding himself, so that he could supply what you had neglected in service to me.

From now on, my brothers, rejoice in our Lord. That I should write these [things] to Page 206 of 276

you is not wearisome to me, because they caution you. 2 Beware of dogs, beware of evil doers, beware of the cutting of flesh. 3 For we are the circumcision, who serve Alaha by the Rukha and boast in Yeshue-Meshikha and are not confident about the flesh, 4 although I did have confidence also about the flesh. For if anyone thinks that his confidence is in the flesh, I [should have confidence] more than he. 5 [I was] circumcised [when] eight days old, from the family of Israyel, from the tribe of Benyamin, a Evraya, the son of Evraye, in the Namusa, Perishaya, 6 in zeal, a persecutor of the church, and in the justification of the Namusa, I was without blame. 7 But those [things] that were a gain to me I counted a loss because of Meshikha. 8 I also count all of these [things] a loss because of the greatness of the knowledge of Yeshue-Meshikha, my Lord, because of whom I have forfeited everything and have counted [it] as dung, so that I would gain Meshikha 9 and be found in him, not having justification of myself that is from the Namusa, but that which is from the faith of Meshikha, which is the justification that is from Alaha,10 so that by it I would know Yeshue and the power of his resurrection and would be made a participant in his sufferings and would be conformed to his death, 11 that it may be I would be able to arrive at the resurrection that is from the dead. 12 I have not yet received [the victory], nor yet been made perfect, but I am running, so that I will attain what Yeshue-Meshikha attained [for] me. 13 My brothers, I do not consider myself to have attained. But one [thing] I know, that I am forgetting what is behind me and I am reaching out before me. 14 And I am running toward the goal, so that I would receive the victory of the high calling of Alaha in Yeshue-Meshikha. 15 Therefore, those who are mature should think these [things] and if you think anything otherwise, Alaha will also reveal this to you. 16 Nevertheless, to reach this, we should follow in one path and with one agreement. 17 Imitate me, my brothers, and consider those who so walk as an example that you have seen in us. 18 For there are many who walk otherwise, those whom I have told you about many times, and now weeping, I am saying that they are enemies of the cross of Meshikha, 19 whose end is destruction, whose god [is] their stomach and whose glory [is] their shame, whose thinking is on the earth. 20 But our work is in heaven and from there we are expecting the Savior, our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 21 who will change the body of our humiliation that it would be in the likeness of the body of his glory, according to his great power by which all is made subject to him.

PHILIPPIANS CHAPTER 4
From now on, my beloved and dear brothers, my joy and my crown, so stand fast in our Lord, my beloved. 2 I beg Euodias and Syntyche to have one mind in our Lord. 3 I beg you also, my true yoke-fellow, that you would help those who are toiling with me in the gospel, with Clement and with the rest of my helpers, whose names are written in the book of life. 4 Rejoice in our Lord at all times, and again I say, “Rejoice.” 5 And let your meekness be known to everyone. Our Lord is near. 6 Do not be distressed about anything, but at all times, by prayer and by petition and with thanksgiving, your requests should be made known before Alaha. 7 And the peace of Alaha that is greater than all knowledge will guard your hearts and your minds in Yeshue-Meshikha. 8 From now on, my brothers, those [things] that are true and those [things] that are modest and those [things] that are upright and those [things] that are pure and those [things] that are lovely and those [things] that are praiseworthy and those works of glory and of commendation, think these [things]. 9 Those [things] that you have learned and received and Page 207 of 276

heard and seen in me, these do and the Alaha of peace will be with you.10 Now I rejoice greatly in our Lord that you have begun [again] to care for me, as also you were caring, but you did not have sufficiency. 11 Now I do not say [this] because I am in need, for I have learned that what I have will be sufficient for me. 12 I know [how] to be humble. I also know [how] to abound in every [situation] and I am disciplined in everything, whether in plenty or in famine, in abundance or in need. 13 I find strength for everything in Meshikha who strengthens me. 14 Nevertheless, you have done well to have shared in my difficulties. 15 Now you know also, Philippians, that in the beginning of the gospel when I left Macedonia, not even one of the churches shared with me in the accounting of receiving and giving, but you only, 16 so that even at Thessalonica, once and again, you sent to me for my use. 17 It is not that I am requesting a gift, but I am requesting that fruit should multiply to you. 18 I have received everything and I have abundance and I am full. And I have accepted all that you sent to me by way of Epaphroditus, a sweet fragrance and an acceptable sacrifice that is pleasing to Alaha. 19 And my Alaha will supply all your need according to his riches in the glory of Yeshue-Meshikha. 20 Now to Alaha our Father [be] glory and honor, forever and ever. Amen. 21 Greet all the holy [ones] who are in Yeshue-Meshikha. The brothers who are with me greet you. 22 All the holy [ones] greet you, especially those who are from the household of Caesar. 23 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with all of you. Amen.

COLOSSIANS
CHAPTER 1
Paul, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha by the will of Alaha, and Timothy, a brother, 2 to those who are at Colosse, brothers, holy [ones] and faithful [ones] in Yeshue-Meshikha: Peace [be] with you and grace from Alaha, our Father. 3 We give thanks at all times to Alaha the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and we pray for you, 4 ever since we heard of your faith that is in Yeshue-Meshikha and your love that is toward all the holy [ones] 5 because of the hope that is kept for you in heaven, that which you previously heard in the word of truthfulness of the gospel, 6 that is preached to you as also to all the world. And it grows and yields fruit, as also [it has] in you from the day that you heard and acknowledged the grace of Alaha with truthfulness, 7 as you learned from Epaphras, our beloved fellow-servant, who is for you a faithful minister of Meshikha 8 and who has made known to us your love that is by the Rukha. 9 Because of this, we also, from the day that we heard, do not cease to pray for you and to ask that you may be filled with knowledge of the will of Alaha with all wisdom and with all spiritual understanding,10 that you may walk as is just and may please Alaha with all good works and may bear fruit and may grow up in the knowledge of Alaha 11 and may be strengthened with all strength, according to the greatness of his glory. With all patience and long-suffering and with joy, 12 you should give thanks to Alaha the Father, who has made us worthy for a portion of the inheritance of the holy [ones] in light 13 and has delivered us from the authority of darkness and has transferred us to the kingdom of his beloved Son, 14 in whom we have redemption and forgiveness of sins, 15 who is the image of the Alaha who is not seen and the firstborn of all created [ones]. 16 And in him everything that is in heaven and on earth was built, all that is seen and all that is not seen, whether thrones or lordships or rulers or authorities, everything [is] by way of him and was built in him. 17 And he is in front of all and everything stands in him. 18 And he is the head of the body, the church, for he is the beginning and the firstborn from the dead in order that he would be the first in all [things]. 19 For in him, he desired all fullness to live 20 and by way of him to reconcile everything to him. And he made peace by the blood of his cross by his hands, whether in earth or in heaven. 21 For you also, who previously were strangers and enemies in your minds because of your evil works, he has now made peace 22 by the body of his flesh and by his death, so that he would establish you before him, holy, without blemish, and without blame. 23 Since [this is so], continue in your faith, your foundation being firm, and be not shaken from the hope of the gospel that you heard [and] that was preached in all the creation that is under heaven, of which I, Paul, am a minister. 24 And I rejoice in the sufferings that are for you and I supply the need because of the adversities of Meshikha in my flesh on behalf of his body, which is the church, 25 of which I am a minister, according to the administration of Alaha that was given to me among you, that I should fully supply the word of Alaha, 26 the mystery that was hidden from ages and from generations, but now is revealed to his holy [ones]. 27 To them, Alaha wanted to make known what is the wealth of the glory of this mystery among the Gentiles, which is Meshikha who is in you, the hope of our glory, 28 [It is] him we preach and teach and make known to every man with all wisdom, so that we may present every man mature in Yeshue-Meshikha. 29 For in this also I am working hard and striving with the help of the power that was given to me.

COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 2
Now I want you to know the kind of struggle I have for you and for them who are in Laodicea and for the rest of those who have not seen my face in the flesh. 2 [The struggle is] that their hearts would be comforted and would be brought near in love to all the wealth of assurance and to the understanding of the knowledge of the mystery of Alaha the Father and of Meshikha, 3 in whom are hidden all the treasures of wisdom and of knowledge. 4 Now I say this, so that no one should deceive you by the persuasiveness of words. 5 For even if I am physically separated from you, nevertheless I am with you spiritually and I rejoice to see your orderliness and the steadfastness of your faith that is in Meshikha. 6 Therefore, as you have received Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord, walk in him, 7 your roots being strengthened and built up in him and established in the faith that you have learned, in which you should abound with thanksgiving. 8 Beware, so that no one will rob you by philosophy and by empty deception, according to the teachings of men and according to the elements of the world and not according to Meshikha, 9 in whom all the fullness of divinity lives bodily.10 And in him also you are absolutely completed, him who is the head of all rulers and authorities. 11 And in him you were circumcised with the circumcision that is not by our hands in the putting off of the flesh of sins, [but] by the circumcision of Meshikha. 12 And you were buried with him in immersion and in him you have risen with him, for you believed in the power of Alaha who raised him from the dead. 13 And you, who were dead in your sins and in the uncircumcision of your flesh, he has made alive with him and he has forgiven us all our sins. 14 And he has blotted out, by his commandments, the handwriting of our debts that was against us and he took it from the middle and fastened it to his cross. 15 And by the putting off of his body, he exposed rulers and authorities and shamed them openly in his person. 16 Therefore, no one should disturb you about food and drink or about the distinctions of feasts and of new moons and of Shabtha(s), 17 which are shadows of things that are to come. But the body is Meshikha. 18 And no one should desire, by [false] humility of mind, to make you guilty, in order to subject you to the worship of angels, by presuming about something that he has not seen. And he is puffed up fruitlessly in the mind of his flesh 19 and does not hold the head [in honor], from whom the whole body is fit together and established with joints and with members and grows [with] the growth of Alaha. 20 For if you died with Meshikha to the elements of the world, are you judged as though you live in the world? 21 [Those say], “Do not touch and do not taste and do not associate with [these].” 22 For these [things] are a custom that is corrupted and are the commands and teachings of men, 23 and they appear to have a word of wisdom with a face of humility and of the reverence of Alaha and of depriving the body, not about anything of value, but rather about those [things] that are a custom of the flesh.

COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 3
Therefore, if you have risen with Meshikha, seek what is above, where Meshikha sits at the right hand of Alaha. 2 Think what is above and not what is on the earth, 3 for you are dead and your life is hidden with Meshikha in Alaha. 4 And when Meshikha, who is our life, is Page 210 of 276

revealed, then you also will be revealed with him in glory. 5 Therefore, put to death your members that are of the earth, fornication and uncleanness and passions and evil desire and greed, which is the reverence of idols. 6 For because of these [things] the wrath of Alaha will come on the sons of disobedience. 7 And in these [things] also, you were previously walking, when you were occupied with them. 8 But now, cease all these [things], anger, fury, wickedness, reviling, unclean speech. 9 And do not lie to one another, but rather strip off the old man with all his practices10 and put on the new [man] that is renewed in knowledge in the likeness of his Creator, 11 where there is not Yehudaya and Armaya, not circumcision and uncircumcision, not Greek and barbarian, not servant and free[men], but Meshikha is all and in all men. 12 Therefore, as the chosen [ones] of Alaha, holy and beloved, put on mercies and loving-kindness and gentleness and humbleness of mind and quietness and long-suffering. 13 And be forbearing to one another and forgiving to one another. And if someone has a complaint against his associate, as Meshikha forgave you, so also you forgive. 14 And with all these [things], [put on] love, which is the girdle of maturity. 15 And the peace of Meshikha will govern your hearts, for to him you were called in one body. And be thankful to Meshikha, 16 that his word may live in you richly with all wisdom. And teach and instruct yourselves in psalms and in hymns and in songs of the Rukha and sing with grace in your hearts to Alaha. 17 And everything that you do in word and in work, do in the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and give thanks by way of him to Alaha the Father. 18 Wives, be subject to your husbands as is right in Meshikha. 19 Men, love your wives and do not be bitter against them. 20 Children, be obedient to your parents in everything, for so it is pleasing before our Lord. 21 Parents, do not anger your children, so that they will not be discouraged. 22 Servants, be obedient in everything to your masters of the flesh, not with what is seen by the eye as those who please men, but with a generous heart and in the reverence of Marya. 23 And all that you do, do with your whole self as to our Lord and not as to men. 24 And know that from our Lord you will receive a reward in the inheritance, for you serve Marya Meshikha. 25 But the evil-doer is rewarded according to what he did wrong and there is no respect of persons.

COLOSSIANS CHAPTER 4
Masters, serve equality and justice to your servants and know that you also have a Master in heaven. 2 Be steadfast in prayer and be vigilant in it and give thanks. 3 And pray also for us that Alaha will open a door of speech for us to speak the mystery of Meshikha, because of whom I am imprisoned, 4 that I may reveal him and speak of him, as it is right for me [to do]. 5 Walk with wisdom toward outsiders and buy out your opportunity. 6 And your speech at all times should be with grace, as though seasoned with salt. And know how you ought to give an answer to every man. 7 Now what concerns me, Tychicus, a beloved brother and faithful minister and our fellow-servant in Marya, will make known to you. 8 I have sent him to you for this [reason], that he would know what concerns you and would comfort your hearts, 9 with Onesimus, a faithful and beloved brother, who is one of you. they will make known to you what concerns us.10 Aristarchus, a captive with me, greets you and Mark, the cousin of Bar-Naba, concerning whom you received commandment that if he came to you, you should receive him, 11 and Yeshue who is called Justus. These who are from the circumcision and they only have assisted me in the kingdom of Alaha and they have been a comfort to me. 12 Epaphras greets you, who is one of you, a servant of Meshikha, laboring at all times for you in prayer, that you would stand, mature Page 211 of 276

[ones] and complete [ones] in all the will of Alaha. 13 For I witness about him that he has great zeal for you and for those who are in Laodicea and in Hierapolis. 14 Luke, our beloved physician, greets you and Demas. 15 Greet the brothers who are in Laodicea and Nymphas and the church that is in his house. 16 And when this letter is read among you, cause it to be read also in the church of the Laodiceans, and that which is written from Laodicea, read. 17 And tell Archippus, “Take care of the ministry that you have received in our Lord to fulfill it.” 18 This greeting [is] by my own hand, Paul. Remember my bonds. Grace [be] with you. Amen.

Paul and Silvanus and Timothy to the church of the Thessalonians, which is in Alaha the Father and in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha: Grace [be] with you and peace. 2 We give thanks to Alaha at all times for all of you and we remember you in our prayers continually. 3 And we recall before Alaha the Father the works of your faith and the labor of your love and the endurance of your hope that is in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 For we know your calling, my brothers, beloved of Alaha, 5 because our preaching to you was not only in words, but also with power and with the Rukha d’Qudsha and with true conviction. Also, you know how we were among you on your account. 6 And you became imitators of us and of our Lord, in that you received the word in great trial and in the joy of the Rukha d’Qudsha. 7 And you were an example to all the believers who are in Macedonia and in Achaia. 8 For from you the word of our Lord was heard, not only in Macedonia and in Achaia, but in every place your faith that is in Alaha was heard, so that it was not necessary to say anything about you. 9 For they report what kind of entrance we had to you and how you turned to Alaha from reverence of idols to serve the living and true Alaha,10 while you wait for his Son from heaven, Yeshue, whom he raised from the dead, who has delivered us from the wrath that is coming.

I THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 2
And you know, my brothers, that our entrance to you was not fruitless, 2 but first we suffered and were dishonored in Philippi, as you know, and then with a great struggle, with the boldness of our Alaha we spoke to you the gospel of Meshikha. 3 For our exhortation was not from deception, nor from uncleanness, nor with treachery. 4 But as we were approved of Alaha to be entrusted with his gospel, so we speak, not to please men, but [to please] Alaha, who searches our hearts. 5 For we never used flattering speech, as you know, nor with a plan of greediness. Alaha [is] witness. 6 And we did not seek praise from men, nor from you, nor from others, although we could have been honored [ones] as the apostles of Meshikha. 7 But we were meek among you, and as a nurse who loves her children, 8 so also we were loving and were desiring to give to you, not only the gospel of Alaha, but also ourselves, because you were beloved. 9 For you recall, our brothers, that we were laboring and toiling by the work of our hands, by night and by day, so that we would not burden one of you.10 You and Alaha are witnesses how we preached to you the gospel of Alaha, purely and uprightly, and we were without blame to all the believers. 11 As you know, we were entreating each one of you as a father [entreats] his children and we were comforting your heart 12 and were charging you that you should walk as is becoming to Alaha, who called you to his kingdom and to his glory. 13 Because of this also, we give thanks continually to Alaha that you received the word of Alaha that you received from us, not as the word of men, but as it is truly, the word of Alaha, and is effectively working in you who believe. 14 But you, my brothers, became imitators of the churches of Alaha that are in Page 213 of 276
1

Yehuda, they that are in Yeshue-Meshikha. For so you also suffered from your countrymen, as they also from the Yehudaye, 15 who killed our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and persecuted their own prophets and us and are not pleasing Alaha and are acting contrary to all men. 16 [These are they] who forbid us to speak with the Gentiles that they would have life, concluding their sins at all [other] times. But wrath will come on them to the fullest extent. 17 But we, our brothers, have been orphans away from you for a short time, in our presence, yet not in our heart. And we have been especially concerned to see your faces with great love. 18 And we wanted to come to you (I, Paul, once and again, yet Satan hindered me). 19 For what is our hope and our joy and the crown of our glory, except you, before our Lord Yeshue at his coming? 20 For you are our praise and our joy.

I THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 3
And because we could not hold out against [knowing], we were willing to remain in Athens alone 2 and to send to you Timothy, our brother and a minister of Alaha and our helper in the gospel of Meshikha, so that he would strengthen you and would inquire of you concerning your faith, 3 so that none of you should be disheartened by these trials, for you know that we are appointed to this. 4 For even while we were with you, we previously said to you that we were going to be tried, as you know happened. 5 Because of this also, I could not hold out against [it], until I sent to know of your faith, so that the Tempter would not tempt you and our effort would be fruitless. 6 But now, from when Timothy came to us from among you and told us about your faith and about your love and that you have a good memory of us continually and [that] you are longing to see us, as also we [long to see] you, 7 because of this, we were comforted by you, our brothers, concerning all our adversities and our trials, because of your faith. 8 And now we live, if you stand fast in our Lord. 9 For what thanks are we able to repay on behalf of you to Alaha concerning all the joy that we rejoice because of you,10 but that we petition Alaha earnestly, by night and by day, that we may see your faces and [that] we may make whole what your faith is lacking? 11 Now may Alaha our Father and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha direct our way to you. 12 And may he multiply and increase your love to one another and to everyone, even as we love you. 13 And may he establish your hearts without blame in holiness before Alaha our Father at the coming of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha with all his holy [ones].

I THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 4
Therefore, my brothers, we beg you and we entreat you in our Lord Yeshue, that as you received from us how you ought to walk and to please Alaha, that you would increasingly do more. 2 For you know those commandments we gave to you in our Lord Yeshue. 3 For this is the will of Alaha, your holiness, and that you should stay away from all fornication, 4 and [that] each one of you would know [how] to possess his vessel in holiness and in honor 5 and not with the passions of desire, as the rest of the Gentiles who do not know Alaha. 6 And no one should dare to transgress against and oppress his brother in this matter, because our Lord is the avenger Page 214 of 276
1

concerning all these [things], even as also we previously said and testified to you. 7 For Alaha did not call you to uncleanness, but to holiness. 8 So then, he who rejects [this] does not reject man, but Alaha who gave his sanctified Rukha to you. 9 Now concerning love of the brothers, you do not need me to write to you, for you yourselves are taught of Alaha to love one another.10 So also, you are serving all the brothers who are in all of Macedonia. But I beg you, my brothers, that you should increase in [love] 11 and be diligent to be quiet and to be occupied with your business. And work with your hands as we commanded you, 12 so that you would walk in a proper manner toward outsiders and you should not be dependent on anyone. 13 But I want you to know, my brothers, that you should not have sorrow concerning those who are asleep, even as others who have no hope. 14 For if we believe that Yeshue died and rose, so also Alaha will bring with him, by Yeshue, those who are asleep. 15 Now this we say to you, by the word of our Lord, that we who remain at the coming of our Lord who are living will not overtake those who are asleep, 16 because our Lord, with a command and with the voice of the archangel and with the trumpet of Alaha, will come down from heaven and the dead who are in Meshikha will rise up first. 17 And then we who remain who are living will be caught up with them as one in the clouds for the meeting of our Lord in the air and so we will always be with our Lord. 18 Therefore, comfort one another with these words.

I THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 5
Now concerning the times and the seasons, my brothers, you do not need me to write to you. 2 For you know truly that the day of our Lord will so come as a thief in the night, 3 when they say, “Peace and harmony.” And then suddenly, destruction will come on them as birth pains on a pregnant woman and they will not escape. 4 But you, my brothers, are not in darkness so that day should overtake you as a thief. 5 For all of you are sons of light and sons of the day. And you are not sons of the night, nor sons of darkness. 6 We should not sleep, therefore, as others, but we should be watchful and be wise, 7 for those who are asleep are asleep in the night and those who are drunk are drunk in the night. 8 But we who are sons of the day should be watchful in our mind and be clothed with the breastplate of faith and of love and should put on the helmet of the hope of life, 9 because Alaha has not appointed us to wrath, but to the possession of life in our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha,10 who died for us, that whether we are awake or asleep, we will live together with him. 11 Because of this, comfort one another and build one another up, as also you have done. 12 And we beg you, my brothers, recognize those who toil among you and stand before you in our Lord and teach you, 13 that they may be regarded by you with abundant love. And because of their work, come to agreement with them. 14 Now we beg you, my brothers, instruct the wrong-doers and encourage the fainthearted [ones] and bear the burden of weak [ones] and be long-suffering to everyone. 15 And beware that none of you should repay evil for evil, but always pursue good [things] to one another and to everyone. 16 Rejoice at all times 17 and pray unceasingly. 18 And in everything give thanks, for this is the will of Alaha in Yeshue-Meshikha for you. 19 Do not extinguish the Rukha. 20 Do not reject prophecies. 21 Search everything and hold that which is good 22 and flee from every evil affair. 23 Now may the Alaha of peace make all of you holy completely and may he keep your whole spirit and your life and your body without blame until the coming of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 24 Faithful is he who called you who will do [this]. 25 My brothers, pray for us. 26 Greet all our brothers with a holy Page 215 of 276

kiss. 27 I charge you by our Lord that this letter should be read to all the holy brothers. 28 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with you. Amen.

CHAPTER 1
Paul and Silvanus and Timothy, to the church of the Thessalonians that is in Alaha, our Father, and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha: 2 Grace [be] with you and peace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 We are indebted to give thanks to Alaha always for you, my brothers, as is right, because your faith grows abundantly and the love of each one of you increases for his associate, 4 so that we will also be boasting about you among the churches of Alaha concerning your faith and concerning your endurance in all your persecution and your trials that you are enduring. 5 [This is] the evidence of the upright judgment of Alaha, that you should be worthy of his kingdom, for which you suffer. 6 And surely it is upright before Alaha that he should repay oppression to your oppressors. 7 And you who are oppressed, he will make alive with us at the appearance of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who [will appear] from heaven with the power of his messengers, 8 when he will execute vengeance with the burning of fire on those who do not know Alaha and on those who do not acknowledge the gospel of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 9 For in the judgment, they will be repaid with eternal destruction from the presence of our Lord and from the glory of his power,10 after he comes to be glorified with his holy [ones] and shows his wonders in his faithful [ones], because our testimony about you will be believed in that day. 11 Because of this, we pray always for you that Alaha will count you worthy of your calling and will fill you with all desire for good [things] and [for] the works of faith by power, 12 that in you the name of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha will be glorified [and that] you also [will be glorified] in him, according to the grace of our Alaha and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha.

II THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 2
Now we beg you, my brothers, concerning the coming of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and concerning our own gathering to him, 2 that you should not be quickly shaken in your minds, nor be troubled, not by word, nor by a spirit, nor by a letter, as though from us, [saying] namely, “Behold, the day of our Lord has arrived.” 3 Will anyone deceive you in any way? Because [it will not come] except a rebellion should come first and the man of sin should be revealed, the son of destruction, 4 who is an opponent of [Alaha] and elevates himself above all that is called Alaha and that is reverenced, so that he will even sit in the temple of Alaha as Alaha and will portray himself as though he is Alaha. 5 Do you not remember that while I was with you I told you these things? 6 And now, you know what holds back [this day] that he should be revealed in its time. 7 For the mystery of wickedness has already begun to work, however, [it will work] by itself when that which now holds [it] back is taken away from the middle. 8 And then the unjust [one] will be revealed, whom our Lord Yeshue will consume by the breath of his mouth, and he will put a stop to him with the manifestation of his coming. 9 For the coming of that [one] is by the working of Satan, with all power and signs and lying wonders10 and with all the deception of Page 217 of 276

wickedness that is in the perishing [ones], because they did not receive the love of the truth by which they should have life. 11 Because of this, Alaha will send them the working of deception that they should believe the lie 12 and [that] all of them would be condemned, those who did not believe with truthfulness, but delighted in wickedness. 13 But we are indebted to give thanks to Alaha always for you, our brothers, beloved of our Lord, because Alaha chose you from the beginning to life by the holiness of the Rukha and by the faith of the truth. 14 For to these [things] he called you by our preaching to be a glory for our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 15 Therefore, my brothers, stand fast and hold firmly to the commandments that you learned, whether by word or by our letter. 16 Now our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and Alaha our Father, who loved us and gave us everlasting comfort and good hope by his grace, 17 comfort your hearts and establish [you] in every word and in every good work.

II THESSALONIANS CHAPTER 3
For now, our brothers, pray for us that the word of our Lord may run [its course] and be glorified in every place as [it is] with you 2 and that we may be delivered from evil and dishonest men, for not everyone has faith. 3 But Marya is faithful, who will keep you and rescue you from the Evil [one]. 4 And we are confident about you in our Lord that the things that we have commanded you, you have done [and] also, you will do. 5 And may our Lord direct your hearts to the love of Alaha and to the endurance of Meshikha. 6 And we command you, my brothers, in the name of our Lord yeshue-Meshikha, to stay away from every brother who walks very evilly and not according to the commandments that he received from us. 7 For you know how you ought to be imitators of us, for we did not walk very evilly among you. 8 But rather, we ate bread without an expense for any of you, but with toil and with labor, by night and by day, we worked, so that we would not burden any of you, 9 not because we are without authority, but that we would give you an example, in ourselves so that you would imitate us.10 For even when we were with you, we commanded you this, that everyone who does not want to work should also not eat. 11 For we hear that there are men among you who walk very evilly and are not doing anything except unprofitable [things]. 12 Now to those we command, and we beg them by our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, that they should work in quietness and eat their [own] bread. 13 Now you, my brothers, should not be weary of doing what is good. 14 And if anyone does not obey our words (these that are in this letter), he should be separated from you. And do not associate with him so that he may be ashamed. 15 Yet do not consider him as an enemy, but reprove him as a brother. 16 And the Lord of peace give you peace always in everything. Our Lord [be] with all of you. 17 The salutation [is] in my handwriting. I, Paul wrote [it], which is the sign that is in all my letters. So I write. 18 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with all of you, my brothers. Amen.

I TIMOTHY
CHAPTER 1
Paul, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha by the commandment of Alaha, our Life-giver, and of Meshikha Yeshue our hope, 2 to Timothy, a true son in the faith: Grace and mercy and peace from Alaha our Father and Meshikha Yeshue our Lord. 3 I begged you, when I went to Macedonia, to remain in Ephesus and to charge each one that they should not teach different doctrines 4 and [that] they should not pay attention to fables and to accounts of endless genealogies. These [things] increasingly bring about controversies and not edification in the faith of Alaha. 5 But the end of the commandment is love that is from a pure heart and from a good conscience and from the true faith. 6 And from these [things], some have erred and have turned aside to empty words, 7 in that they seek to be teachers of the Namusa, not understanding what they speak, nor about which they dispute. 8 But we know that the Namusa is good if a man conducts himself in it according to it lawfully, 9 knowing that the Namusa was not established for the upright [ones], but for the wicked and for the rebellious and for the ungodly and for the sinners and for the deceitful and for those who are not pure and for those who wound their fathers and for those who wound their mothers and for murderers10 and for fornicators and for homosexuals and for kidnappers of free men and for liars and transgressors concerning oaths and for everything that is contrary to sound teaching 11 of the gospel of the glory of the blessed Alaha, [with] which I am entrusted. 12 And I thank him who strengthened me, our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who counted me a faithful [one] and ordained me to his service, 13 me who previously was a reviler and a persecutor and a scorner, but I received mercy, because when I was ignorant, I acted without faith. 14 Now the grace of our Lord and the faith and love that are in Yeshue-Meshikha abounded in me. 15 The word is faithful and it is worthy to receive, that Yeshue-Meshikha came into the world to give life to sinners, of whom I am chief. 16 But because of this, he had mercy on me, that in me first, Yeshue-Meshikha would display all his long-suffering as an example to those who were going to believe in him to eternal life. 17 And to the King of the ages, to him who is incorruptible and invisible, who is one Alaha, [be] honor and glory, forever and ever. Amen. 18 This commandment I am entrusting to you, my son, Timothy, according to the first prophecies that were about you, that you should work this good work 19 in faith and in a good conscience. For those, who have rejected this, are destitute of faith, 20 like Hymenaeus and Alexander, those whom I have delivered to Satan to be disciplined, so that they would not be blaspheming.

I TIMOTHY CHAPTER 2
I beg you, therefore, that before everything you should offer petition to Alaha and prayer and intercession and thanksgiving on behalf of all men, 2 on behalf of kings and princes, that we may live a peaceful and restful life with all reverence for Alaha and purity, 3 for this is good and acceptable before Alaha, our Life-giver, 4 who wants all men to have life and to turn to Page 219 of 276

the knowledge of the truth. 5 For Alaha is one and the mediator of Alaha and of men is one, the man, Yeshue-Meshikha, 6 who gave himself [as] a ransom for everyone, a witness that arrived in its time, 7 [of] which I was ordained its preacher and its apostle. I speak [with] truthfulness and I do not lie, for I became a teacher of the Gentiles in the faith of the truth. 8 Therefore, I want men to pray in every place, lifting up their hands purely, without anger and without arguments. 9 So also, women [should dress] in a moderate style of clothing. Their adornment should be with modesty and with moderation, not with braiding [of the hair] or with gold or with pearls or with beautiful outer garments,10 but with good works, as it is proper for women who profess reverence for Alaha. 11 A wife should learn in quietness with all submission, 12 for I do not allow a wife to teach nor to be presumptuous over the husband, but she should be at peace. 13 For Adom was formed first and then Khawa, 14 and Adom did not err, but the woman erred and transgressed the commandment. 15 But she has life by way of her children, if they remain in faith and in love and in holiness and in sobriety.

I TIMOTHY CHAPTER 3
The word is faithful. For if a man desires the office of an elder, he desires good works. Now it is proper for an elder to be one in whom no blemish is found and is the husband of one woman, who [is] of a watchful mind and sober and orderly and loving of strangers and able to teach 3 and does not transgress concerning wine and is not swift to strike [with] his hand. But he should be humble and not quarrelsome and not loving of money 4 and should lead his house well and keep his children in submission with all purity. 5 For if he does not know how to lead his own house well, how is he able to lead the church of Alaha? 6 And his discipleship should not be recent, so that he should not be lifted up and fall into the judgment of Satan. 7 And also he ought to have a good testimony from those without, so that he should not fall into reproach and into the snares of Satan. 8 And so also, ministers should be pure and should not be double-tongued and should not be inclined to much wine and should not love corrupt profits, 9 but they should adhere to the mystery of the faith with a pure conscience.10 And these should be proven first and then they may serve, when they are without blame. 11 So also, the women should be sober and should be watchful in their minds and should be faithful in everything and should not be slanderers. 12 Ministers should be he who has one wife and leads his children and his house well. 13 For those who have ministered well obtain recognition for them selves and much boldness in the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha. 14 These [things] I am writing to you, although I am hoping to come to you soon, 15 and even if I should delay, so that you may know how you ought to behave in the house of Alaha, which is the church of the living Alaha. The pillar and foundation of truth 16 and truly great is this mystery of uprightness, which was revealed in the flesh and was justified spiritually and was seen by angels and was preached among the Gentiles and was believed in the world and was taken up in glory.

I TIMOTHY CHAPTER 4

Page 220 of 276

Now the Rukha plainly says that in the last times some will depart from the faith and will follow deceiving spirits and doctrines of demons, 2 those who deceive by false appearance and are speaking a lie and are seared in their conscience 3 and forbid to marry. And they keep away from foods, which Alaha created for use and for thanksgiving for those who believe and know the truth, 4 because everything that was created by Alaha is good and there is not anything that should be rejected, if it is received with thanksgiving, 5 for it is made holy by the word of Alaha and by prayer. 6 If you teach these [things] to your brothers, you will be a good minister of Yeshue-Meshikha, as you grow up in the words of faith and in the good teaching that you were taught. 7 Now withdraw from the foolish tales of old [women] and train yourself in uprightness. 8 For the training of the body profits a little [time], but uprightness profits in everything and has the promise of the life of this time and of the future. 9 The word is faithful and it is worthy to receive,10 for because of this, we labor and suffer blame, because we trust in the living Alaha, who is the Life-giver of all men, especially of the believers. 11 These [things] teach and command. 12 And no one should despise your youth, but be an example to the believers in word and in conduct and in love and in faith and in purity. 13 Until I come, be diligent in reading and in petition and in teaching. 14 And do not despise the gift that you have that was given to you by prophecy and by the laying on of the hand of the eldership. 15 Meditate on these [things] and be in them, that it may be known to everyone that you are going forward. 16 And watch yourself and your teaching and persevere in them. For as you do these [things], you will give life to yourself and to those who hear you.

I TIMOTHY CHAPTER 5
You should not reprove an elder, but should persuade him as a father and those who are younger as your brothers 2 and the elder women as mothers and those who are younger as your sisters with all purity. 3 Honor widows, who are truly widows. 4 And if there is a widow who has children or grandchildren, they should first learn that they should act rightly in their households and they should repay the obligations to their parents, for this is acceptable before Alaha. 5 Now she who truly is a widow and alone, her trust is in Alaha and she is faithful in prayers and in petitions by night and by day. 6 But she who serves luxury is dead while alive. 7 Command them these [things], so that they may be without blame. 8 For if [there is] a man who does not take care of those who are his own and especially those who are [of] the household of faith, this [one] has denied the faith and is more evil than those who do not believe. 9 Therefore, you should choose a widow [to honor] who is not less than sixty years [old], who was [married] to one man10 and has a reputation of good works, whether she brought up children or received strangers or washed the feet of holy [ones] or relieved troubled [ones] or walked in every good work. 11 But from those widows who are young, excuse yourself, for they may be wanton against Meshikha and seek to have husbands. 12 And their judgment is established, because they have set aside their former faith. 13 And they also learn laziness while circulating among the houses, and not only laziness, but also to talk too much and to distract themselves with fruitless [things] and to speak what is not proper. 14 Therefore, I want those who are young to marry and to bear children and to direct their homes and not give to the enemy even one cause for reproach. 15 For at this time some have begun to turn aside after Satan. 16 If any believing [man] or believing [woman] have widows, they should support them and they should not be a burden on the church, so that there may be a Page 221 of 276
1

sufficiency for those who are truly widows. 17 Those elders who conduct themselves well should be esteemed worthy of double honor, especially those who work hard in the word and in teaching, 18 for the scripture says: You should not muzzle the ox in the threshing and the laborer is worthy of his wage. 19 Do not accept an accusation against an elder, except by the mouth of two or three witnesses. 20 Reprove those who sin before everyone, so that the rest of the people would also have respect. 21 I charge you before Alaha and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and his chosen messengers that you observe these [things]. And your mind should not be preoccupied with anything and do not do anything with respect of persons. 22 Do not lay a hand quickly on anyone and do not participate in strange sins. Guard yourself with purity. 23 And from now on, do not drink water, but drink a little wine because of your stomach and because of your continuing infirmities. 24 There are men whose sins are well-known and precede them to the house of judgment and there are [some] whose [sins] follow after them. 25 So also, good works are well-known and those that are otherwise are not able to be hidden.

I TIMOTHY CHAPTER 6
Those who are under the yoke of bondage should hold their masters in all honor, so that the name of Alaha and his teaching will not be reviled. 2 And those who have faithful masters should not despise them, because they are their brothers. But rather, they should especially minister to them, because they are believers and beloved, in whose service they are refreshed. These [things] teach and require from them. 3 But if there is a man who teaches another doctrine and does not apply himself to the sound words of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha and to the doctrine of reverence for Alaha, 4 this [one] is proud, knowing nothing. But [he is] sick with controversy and with questioning about words, from which come envy and contention and reviling and the setting of evil in the mind 5 and the strife of men, those whose mind is corrupted and [who] are deprived of truthfulness. And they suppose that reverence for Alaha is gain. But you, avoid these [things], 6 for our own gain is great in the use of our sufficiency, because it is reverence for Alaha. 7 For we did not bring anything into the world and it is evident that we also cannot carry [anything] out of it. 8 Because of this, food and clothing are sufficient for us. 9 But those who want to grow rich fall into temptations and into snares and into many pleasures, which are foolish and are hurtful and are drowning men in corruption and loss.10 For the root of all evil [things] is the love of money. And there are some who have longed for it and have erred from the faith and have brought to themselves many miseries. 11 But you, oh man of Alaha, flee from these [things] and pursue after justification and after uprightness and after faith and after love and after patience and after meekness. 12 And struggle in the good contest of faith and obtain eternal life, to which you were called and confessed a good confession before many witnesses. 13 I am charging you before Alaha, who gives life to all, and Yeshue-Meshikha, who testified a good testimony before Pontius Pilate, 14 that you keep the commandment without spot and without blemish until the appearance of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 15 whom Alaha is going to show in its time, the blessed and only powerful [one], King of kings and Lord of lords, 16 who alone is incorruptible and lives in light, to whom no one is able to draw near and no one from men has seen, nor is even able to see, to whom [be] honor and authority, forever and ever. Amen. 17 Command the rich of this world that they should not be elevated in their minds and that they should not trust in wealth that is not trustworthy, but rather in the living Alaha, who gave us Page 222 of 276
1

everything richly for our rest. 18 And [command that] they should do good works and should increase in pleasing occupations and should be ready to give and to fellowship, 19 and they should lay up for themselves a good foundation for that which is to come, that they may obtain true life. 20 Oh Timothy, watch over what was entrusted to you and flee from fruitless reports and from the contrary principles of false knowledge, 21 for those who profess it have erred from the faith. Grace [be] with you. Amen.

II TIMOTHY
CHAPTER 1
Paul, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha, by the will of Alaha and by the promise of life that is in Yeshue-Meshikha, 2 to Timothy, a beloved son: Grace and mercy and peace from Alaha the Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 I give thanks to Alaha, whom I serve from my fathers with a pure conscience, that I continually remember you in my prayers by night and by day. 4 And I long to see you and I recall your tears, that I may be filled with joy 5 by the remembrance I have about your steadfast faith that lived first in your grandmother, Lois, and in your mother, Eunice, and I am persuaded is also in you. 6 Because of this, I remind you to stir up the gift of Alaha that you have by the laying on of my hand. 7 For Alaha has not given us a spirit of fear, but [a Rukha] of power and of love and of instruction. 8 Therefore, do not be ashamed about the testimony of our Lord, nor about me, his prisoner, but endure evil [things] connected with the gospel by the power of Alaha, 9 who gave us life and called us with a holy calling, not according to our works, but according to his will and his grace that was given to us by Yeshue-Meshikha from before the time of the ages10 and now has been revealed by the appearance of our Life-giver, Yeshue-Meshikha, who made death of no effect and made life and incorruptibility evident by the gospel, 11 of which I was appointed a preacher and an apostle and a teacher of the Gentiles. 12 Because of this, I endure these [things] and I am not ashamed, for I know in whom I have believed and I am persuaded that he is able by his hands to keep my deposit for me until that day. 13 You should continue the pattern of sound words, which you heard from me in the faith and in the love that is in Yeshue-Meshikha. 14 Keep the good deposit by the Rukha d’Qudsha that lives in us. 15 This you know, that all those who were in Asia have turned from me, among whom are Phygellus and Hermogenes. 16 May our Lord give mercies to the house of Onesiphorus, who refreshed me many times and was not ashamed of the chains of my bonds. 17 But also, when he came to Rome, he searched for me with diligence and found me. 18 May our Lord allow him to find mercies with our Lord in that day. And you know well how he ministered to me in Ephesus.
1

II TIMOTHY CHAPTER 2
You, therefore, my son, be strong in the grace which is in Yeshue-Meshikha. 2 And those [things] that you have heard from me by way of many witnesses, these entrust to faithful men, who are able by their hands to teach others also. 3 And endure evil [things] as a good worker of Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 No man works and is entangled with the matters of the world, so that he may please the one who chose him. 5 And if a man competes, he is not crowned, if he does not compete according to the rule. 6 The husbandman who labors ought to be the first fed from his fruits. 7 Consider closely what I say. May our Lord give you wisdom in everything. 8 Remember Yeshue-Meshikha, who rose from the dead who is from the seed of Dawid, according to my gospel, 9 in which I am suffering evil [things], even unto bonds, as though [I was] an Page 224 of 276
1

evil-doer. But the word of Alaha is not bound.10 Because of this, I endure everything on account of the chosen [ones], so that they may also find life that is in Yeshue-Meshikha, with glory that is forever. 11 The word is faithful. For if we died with him, we will also live with him. 12 And if we endure, we will also reign with him. But if we deny him, he will also deny us. 13 And if we do not believe in him, he continues in his faithfulness, for he is not able to deny himself. 14 Remind them of these [things] and give witness before our Lord, that they should not be disputing about words without profit to the overthrow of those who listen to them. 15 And you should be diligent to present yourself maturely before Alaha, a worker without shame, who is rightly proclaiming the word of truth. 16 And avoid empty words that have no usefulness in them, for they add more and more to the irreverence of those who are occupied with them. 17 And their word, as gangrene, has spread to many. And one of these is Hymenaeus and another, Philetus, 18 who have erred from the truth, saying that the resurrection of the dead has happened. And they are turning away the faith of some. 19 But the foundation of Alaha stands steadfast and it has this seal: And Marya knows those who are his own. And everyone who calls on the name of Marya should withdraw from wickedness. 20 Now in a great house, there are not only vessels of gold or of silver, but there are [vessels] also of wood and of pottery, some for honor and some for dishonor. 21 Therefore, if a man will cleanse himself from these [things], he will be a pure vessel for honor that is profitable for the use of his Lord and prepared for every good work. 22 Flee from all the desires of youth and pursue uprightness and faith and love and peace, with those who call on our Lord with a pure heart. 23 Avoid foolish controversies [with] those who are without instruction, for you know that they generate disputes. 24 Now a servant of our Lord should not dispute, but he should be meek to everyone and adept at teaching and long-suffering, 25 so that he may guide those who argue against him with meekness, so that Alaha will give them repentance and they will know the truth 26 and will recall [the truth] to themselves and will break away from the snare of Satan, by whom they were caught for his desire.

II TIMOTHY CHAPTER 3
But know this, that in the last days difficult times will come. 2 And men will be lovers of themselves and lovers of money, boastful, proud, revilers, those who are not obedient to their parents, ungrateful, wicked, 3 slanderers, slaves to desire, cruel, haters of good [things], 4 traitors, unrestrained, haughty, attached to desires, more than the love of Alaha, 5 those who have the form of reverence for Alaha, yet are far removed from his power. Push away from you those who are so. 6 For of them are they who creep from house to house and captivate women who are steeped in sins and are led away by various desires, 7 who are always learning and are never able to come to the knowledge of the truth. 8 But as Jannes and Jambres stood against Mushe, so they are also standing against the truth, one whose mind is corrupt and [who] rejects the faith. 9 But they will not go in front of them, for their folly is made known to everyone, as also theirs was made known.10 But you have followed after my teaching and after my ways and after my will and after my faith and after my long-suffering and after my love and after my patience 11 and after my persecution and after my sufferings. And you know those [things] I endured in Antioch and in Iconium and in Lystra, what persecution I endured. And from all of these my Lord delivered me. 12 Now all those who desire to live in reverence for Alaha in Yeshue-Meshikha will be persecuted. 13 But evil and deceiving men will add to their evil, while deceiving and Page 225 of 276
1

being deceived. 14 Now you remain in those [things] that you learned and were assured of, for you know from whom you learned [them], 15 and that from your youth you were taught the holy writings, which are able to make you wise for life by the faith of Yeshue-Meshikha. 16 Every writing that was written by the Rukha is profitable for teaching and for reproof and for correction and for instruction that is about uprightness, 17 so that the man of Alaha may be mature and complete for every good work.

II TIMOTHY CHAPTER 4
I charge you before Alaha and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who is ready to judge the dead and the living at the appearing of his kingdom. 2 Proclaim the word and stand with diligence in season and out of season. Admonish and reprove with all long-suffering and teaching, 3 for the time will come when they will not hear sound teaching, but according to their desires, they will multiply teachers to themselves in the itching of their hearing 4 and they will turn their ear[s] away from the truth and they will turn aside to fables. 5 But you, be vigilant in everything and endure evil [things] and do the work of an evangelist and complete your ministry. 6 For from now on, I am being poured out [as a drink offering] and the time that I should depart is coming. 7 I have fought a good contest and I have completed my course and I have kept my faith. 8 And now a crown of uprightness is reserved for me that my Lord, who is the upright judge, will reward me in that day, and not only me, but also those who love his appearing. 9 Be diligent to come to me quickly.10 For Demas has left me and loved this world and gone to Thessalonica, Crescens to Galatia and Titus to Dalmatia. 11 Only Luke is with me. Take Mark and bring him with you, for he is profitable to me for the ministry. 12 And I have sent Tychicus to Ephesus. 13 And when you come, bring the book-carrier that I left in Troas with Carpus and the books, especially the rolls of parchments. 14 Alexander, the silversmith, showed me many evil [things]. Our Lord will reward him according to his works. 15 Now also, you beware of him, for he is very puffed up against our words. 16 In my first defense, no man was with me, but all of them left me. Do not count this to them. 17 But my Lord stood by me and strengthened me, that by me, the preaching would be completed and all the Gentiles would hear that I was rescued from the mouth of the lion. 18 And my Lord will rescue me from every evil work and will give me life in his kingdom that is in heaven. To him [be] glory, forever and ever. Amen. 19 Greet Priscilla and Aquila and the house of Onesiphorus. 20 Erastus stayed in Corinth and I left Trophimus sick in the city of Miletus. 21 Be diligent to come before winter. Eubulus greets you and Pudens and Linus and Claudia and all the brothers. 22 Our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with your spirit. Grace [be] with us. Amen.

TITUS
CHAPTER 1
Paul, a servant of Alaha and an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha, according to the faith of the chosen [ones] of Alaha and the knowledge of the truth that is by reverence for Alaha, 2 concerning the hope of eternal life, which the true Alaha promised before the times of the age 3 and manifested his word in its time by way of our preaching, [with] which I was entrusted by the commandment of Alaha our Life-giver, 4 to Titus, a true son in the common faith: Grace and peace from Alaha the Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, our Life-giver. 5 Because of this, I had left you in Crete, that you would set in order those [things] that were lacking and [that] you would ordain elders in every city as I commanded you. 6 [He should be] one who is without blame and is the husband of one wife and has faithful children, who are not speaking evil and are not unruly with intemperance. 7 For it is required that an elder should be without blame as a steward of Alaha and should not be led by his own mind and should not be full of rage and should not be a transgressor concerning wine and should not be swift to strike [with] his hand and should not be a lover of corrupt profits. 8 But he should be a lover of strangers and he should be a lover of good [things] and he should be sober and he should be upright and he should be pure and keeping himself from passions 9 and being diligent concerning the teaching of the word of faith, so that he may also be able to encourage by his sound teaching and to reprove those who are quarrelsome.10 For there are many who are not submissive and their words are empty and they are deceiving the minds of men, especially those who are from the circumcision. 11 Their mouth[s] ought to be shut closely, for they are corrupting many families and are teaching what is not right because of corrupt profits. 12 One of them, their own prophet, said, “The Cretans are always liars, evil beasts and idle gluttons,” 13 and this testimony is truthful. Because of this, reprove them sharply that they should be sound in the faith 14 and [that] they should not yield to the fables of the Yehudaye and the commandments of men who hate the truth. 15 For everything is pure to the pure, but those who are corrupted and unbelieving do not have what is pure, but their mind is corrupted and their conscience. 16 And they profess to know alaha, but by their works they deny him and they are detestable and disobedient and rejecters of every good work.

TITUS CHAPTER 2
But you, speak what is suitable to sound teaching. 2 And teach the elders that they should be watchful in their minds and should be sober and should be pure and should be sound in faith and in love and in patience. 3 And also [teach] the elder women likewise that they should be in behavior as is suitable for reverence to Alaha and should not be slanderers and should not be enslaved to much wine and [that] they should be teachers of good [things] 4 and moderating those who are younger [women], so that they love their husbands and their children 5 and they should be moderate and holy and should be good caretakers of their houses and should be subject to their husbands, so that no one will profane the word of Alaha. 6 And likewise, request those Page 227 of 276
1

who are young [men] to be sober. 7 Now in everything, show yourself as an example in all good works. And in your teaching, you should have sound speech 8 that is moderate and not corrupt. And [let] no one despise it, so that he who stands against us will be ashamed, not being able to say anything hateful against us. 9 Servants should serve their masters in everything and should be pleasing and not be disputing10 and not stealing. But they should demonstrate their integrity in everything, so that in everything they may adorn the teaching of Alaha, our Life-giver. 11 For the grace of Alaha, the Life-giver of all, is revealed to all men 12 and instructs us to deny irreverence and the passions of the world and to live in this world with moderation and with justice and with reverence for Alaha, 13 looking for the blessed hope and for the manifestation of the glory of the great Alaha and our Life-giver, Yeshue-Meshikha, 14 who gave himself for us, so that he could deliver us from all wickedness and would purify for himself a new people who are zealous in good works. 15 Speak these [things] and entreat and reprove with all authority and let no one despise you.

TITUS CHAPTER 3
And remind them that they should obey and should be subject to rulers and to authorities and that they should be prepared for every good work 2 and they should not revile anyone and should not be contentious, but rather they should be humble and they should demonstrate their kindness to all men in everything. 3 For we were also previously without sense and we were disobedient and we were erring and we were serving various passions and we were occupied with wickedness and with envy and we were being hateful. We were even hating one another. 4 But when the kindness and compassion of Alaha, our Life-giver, was revealed, 5 not by works of justification that we did, but by his own mercies, he gave us life by the washing of the birth from above and by the renewing of the Rukha d’Qudsha, 6 which he poured out on us abundantly by way of Yeshue-Meshikha, our Life-giver, 7 that we would be justified by his grace and would be heirs in the hope of eternal life. 8 The word is faithful. And these [things] I want you also to affirm to them, so that those who have believed in Alaha may be diligent to perform good works. These [things] are good and profitable for men. 9 But withdraw from foolish questioning and from accounts of genealogies and from contentions and from disputes of the Saphrey. For there is no profit in them and they are fruitless.10 Withdraw from a heretical man after you have instructed him once and again. 11 And know that he who is so is perverse and sinful and he has condemned himself. 12 When I send to you Artemas or Tychicus, be diligent to come to me at Nicopolis, for I have decided to winter there. 13 But concerning Zenas, the Saphra, and concerning Apollos, be diligent to escort them well [on their journey], so that they should lack nothing. 14 And those who are our own should also learn to perform good works in matters that are pressing, so that they will not be without fruit. 15 All those who are with me greet you. Greet all those who love us in the faith. Grace [be] with all of you. Amen.

PHILEMON
CHAPTER 1
Paul, the prisoner of Yeshue-Meshikha, and Timothy, a brother, to Philemon, beloved and a worker who is with us, 2 and to our beloved Apphia, and to Archippus, a worker who is with us, and to the church that is in your house: 3 Grace [be] with you and peace from Alaha our Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 I thank my Alaha always and I remember you in my prayers, 5 since I heard of your faith and the love that you have toward our Lord Yeshue and toward all the holy [ones], 6 that the fellowship of your faith may yield fruit in works and in the knowledge of all the good [things] that you have in Yeshue-Meshikha. 7 For we have great joy and comfort, because by way of your love the bowels of the holy [ones] are refreshed. 8 Because of this, I have great boldness in Meshikha to command you [to do] those [things] which are just. 9 But because of love, I earnestly beg you, I, Paul, who am old, as you know, and now also am a prisoner of Yeshue-Meshikha.10 And I am begging you concerning my son, whom I have born in my bonds, Onesimus, 11 in whom at one time you had no profit, but now is very profitable both to you and also to me. 12 And I have sent him to you. So now, receive him as one born by me. 13 For I wanted to keep him with me that he should minister to me instead of you during [my] bonds for the gospel. 14 But I did not want to do anything without your counsel, so that your goodness would not be with compulsion, but by your [free] will. 15 Now perhaps, even because of this, he went away for a time, so that you may keep him forever, 16 from now on, not as a servant, but [as] more than a servant, my own beloved brother, how much more your own, both in the flesh and in our Lord. 17 Therefore, if you are a partner with me, receive him as [you would] me. 18 And if he has harmed you or he owes [you] anything, count this to me. 19 I, Paul, have written with my hands [that] I will repay. I will not say to you that you also owe your life to me. 20 Yes, my brother, I [want] to be refreshed by you in our Lord. Refresh my bowels in Meshikha. 21 Because I am confident that you will obey me, I have written to you and I know that you will do more than I say. 22 And one [more thing] also, prepare for me a guest house, for I hope that by your prayers I will be given to you. 23 Epaphras, a captive who is with me in Yeshue-Meshikha, greets you, 24 and Mark and Aristarchus and Demas and Luke, my helpers. 25 The grace of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha [be] with your spirit. Amen.

HEBREWS
CHAPTER 1
In all ways and in all forms, Alaha spoke previously with our fathers by the prophets. 2 And in these last days, he has spoken to us by his Son, whom he appointed heir of everything and by whom he made the ages, 3 who is the radiance of his glory and the image of his being and almighty by the power of his word. And in his person, he accomplished the cleansing of our sins and sat down at the right hand of majesty in the high places. 4 And this [one] is greater than the angels in every way, even as the name that he inherited is greater than theirs. 5 For to which of the angels did Alaha ever say: You are my son, this day I have fathered you, and again, I will be a father to him and he will be a son to me? 6 And again, when he brought the firstborn into the world, he said: Let all the angels of Alaha worship him. 7 But about the angels he spoke so: He made his angels a wind and his ministers a flaming fire. 8 But concerning the Son he said: Your throne, Alaha, [is] forever. An upright scepter [is] the scepter of your kingdom. 9 You love uprightness and hate wickedness. Because of this, Alaha, your Alaha, has anointed you with the oil of gladness more than your companions.10 And again: From the beginning you have laid the foundations of the earth and heaven, [which] are the work of your hands. 11 They will pass away, yet you will endure, and all of them will grow old as a garment 12 and as an overcoat you will roll them up. They will be changed, yet you will be as you are and your years will not end. 13 And to which of the angels did he ever say: Sit at my right hand until I place your enemies [as] a footstool under your feet? 14 Behold, are they not all spirits of service who are sent in service on account of those who are about to inherit life?
1

HEBREWS CHAPTER 2
Because of this, we ought to be especially cautious in what we have heard, so that we will not fall. 2 For if the word that was spoken by way of angels was confirmed and all who heard it and transgressed against it received a reward with uprightness, 3 how will we escape, if we despise those [things] that are our life, those that began to be spoken by our Lord and were confirmed in us by those who heard, 4 Alaha being a witness about them with signs and with wonders and with various miracles and with distributions of the Rukha d’Qudsha that were given according to his will? 5 For he did not subject the age that is to come, about which we speak, to angels. 6 But as the scripture witnesses and says: What is man that you remember him and the Son of Man that you visit him? 7 You humbled him lower than the angels. You placed on his head glory and honor and gave him authority over the work of your hands 8 and you subjected everything under his feet. Now in that he subjected everything to him, he did not leave out anything that was not subjected. But now, we do not yet see that everything is subjected to him. 9 But we see him, who was humbled lower than the angels, to be [this] Yeshue, because of the suffering of his death. And glory and honor are placed on his head, for by the grace of Alaha, he tasted death in place of everyone.10 For it was proper for him, by whose hand everything [was] Page 230 of 276
1

and for whose sake everything [was] and [who] brought many sons into glory, that he should perfect the prince of their life by his suffering. 11 For he who makes holy and those who are made holy are all of one. Because of this, he is not ashamed to call them his brothers, 12 saying: I will announce your name to my brothers and I will praise you within the church. 13 And again: I will be confident about him, and again, behold, I and the children that Alaha has given me. 14 For because the sons share in flesh and blood, he also in the same manner shared of the same, that by his death he would put a stop to him who held the authority of death, who is Satan, 15 and would release those who by fear of death were subjected to bondage all their lives. 16 For he did not assume [a nature] from the angels, but he assumed [a nature] from the seed of Avraham. 17 Because of this, it is right that he should be made like his brothers in everything, so that he would be a merciful and faithful high priest in the things of Alaha and would make atonement for the sins of the people. 18 For in that which he [himself] suffered and was tempted, he is able to help those who are tempted.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 3
Therefore, my holy brothers, who are called with a calling that is from heaven, consider this apostle and high priest of our confession, Yeshue-Meshikha, 2 who was faithful to him who made him, as [was] Mushe with all his house. 3 For the glory of this [man] is much greater than that of Mushe, just as the honor of the builder of the house [is] much greater than [that of] his building. 4 For every house is built by someone, but he who builds all is Alaha. 5 And Mushe, as a servant, was faithful in all his house, for a witness of those [things] that were going to be, [that] were spoken by way of him. 6 Now Meshikha, as the Son, [is] over his house. And we are his house, if we hold fast the boldness and the boasting of his hope to the end. 7 Because the Rukha d’Qudsha said, Today if you will hear his voice, 8 do not harden your hearts to anger him as the rebels and as [in] the day of temptation in the wilderness, 9 when your fathers tempted and tested me [and] saw my works [for] forty years.10 Because of this, I was wearied with that generation and I said, “[This] is a people whose heart wanders and they do not know my ways,” 11 so that I swore in my anger that they would not enter into my rest. 12 Watch, therefore, my brothers, so that an evil heart that does not believe will not be in any of you and you should go away from the living Alaha. 13 But examine yourselves all days until the day that is called, “The day,” so that none of you will be hardened by the deception of sin. 14 For we take part with Meshikha, if we persist from the beginning even to the end in this true covenant, 15 as it is said: Today if you will hear his report, do not harden your hearts to anger him. 16 For who were those who heard and angered him? Not all those who came out of Egypt by way of Mushe [angered him]. 17 And with whom was he wearied [for] forty years, but with those who sinned and whose bones fell in the wilderness? 18 And about whom did he swear that they would not enter into his rest, but about those who were not persuaded? 19 We see that they were not able to enter, because they did not believe.
1

HEBREWS CHAPTER 4

Page 231 of 276

Therefore, we should fear, so that while the promise of an entrance into his rest is firm, none of you will be found to fall short when [it is time] to enter. 2 For we also were brought the gospel, as they were, but the word did not profit those who heard, because it was not mixed with faith by those who heard it. 3 But we who believe are entering into rest. But as he said: As I swore in my anger, “They will not enter into my rest.” For behold, the works of Alaha were from the beginning of the world. 4 As he said about the Shabtha: Alaha rested on the seventh day from all his works. 5 And here again, he said: They will not enter into my rest. 6 Therefore, because there was a place that each one should enter and those first [ones] who were brought the gospel did not enter since they were not persuaded, 7 again he set another day after a long time, as it was written above, for Dawid said: Today if you will hear his voice, do not harden your hearts. 8 For if Yeshue (Joshua), the son of Nun, had given them rest, he would not have spoken afterwards about another day. 9 Therefore, it is established for the people of Alaha to be given a rest.10 For he who enters into his rest has also rested from his works, as Alaha [rested] from his. 11 Therefore, we should be diligent to enter into that rest, so that we will not fall in the likeness of those who were not persuaded. 12 For the word of Alaha is living and completely effective and sharper than a two-edged sword and enters all the way to the separation of soul and of spirit, and of the joints and of the marrow and of the bones, and judges the reasonings and the thoughts of the heart. 13 And there is no created [thing] that is hidden before him, but everything is naked and evident before of the eyes of him to whom we give an account. 14 Therefore, because we have a great high priest, Yeshue-Meshikha, the Son of Alaha, who went up to heaven, we should persist in confession of him. 15 For we do not have a high priest who is not able to feel our weakness, but one who was tempted in everything like us, [yet] without sin. 16 Therefore, we should boldly come near the throne of his grace to receive mercies and to find grace for help in time of adversity.

1

HEBREWS CHAPTER 5
For every high priest who is ordained of men for men, concerning those [things] that are of Alaha, to offer offerings and sacrifices for sins, 2 he who is able to humble himself and to feel with those who do not know and [who] err, because he also is clothed with weakness. 3 And because of this, it is necessary for the people, so also for himself, that he should offer [an offering] for his sins. 4 And no man takes the honor for himself, except he who was called by Alaha, as [was] Ahrun. 5 So also, Meshikha did not glorify himself to become the high priest, but he who said to him: You are my son. Today I have fathered you. 6 As he said also in another place: You are a priest forever in the likeness of Malkizedeq. 7 Also, while he was clothed with flesh, he offered petition and intercession with strong crying and with tears to him who was able to make him alive from death and he was heard. 8 And although he was a Son, from the fear and the sufferings that he bore, he learned obedience. 9 And so he was matured and became for all those who obey him the cause of eternal life.10 And he was named of Alaha, the high priest in the likeness of Malkizedeq. 11 Now concerning this Malkizedeq, we have a great speech to say, yet it is difficult to explain it, because you are weak in your hearing. 12 For you ought to be teachers because of the time you have had in teaching, but now again you are needing to learn what are the first principles of the beginning of the words of Alaha. And you have need for milk and not Page 232 of 276
1

for solid food. 13 But everyone whose food is milk is not persuaded in the word of uprightness, because he is a baby. 14 But solid food belongs to the mature, those who, because they are trained, have exercised their senses to distinguish good and evil.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 6
Because of this, we should leave the starting point of the word of Meshikha and we should come to maturity. Or will you again lay another foundation for repentance from dead works and for the faith that is in Alaha 2 and for the doctrine of immersion and of the laying on of a hand and for the resurrection from the dead and for eternal judgment? 3 If Marya permits, we will do this. 4 But they are not able, those who once have gone down into immersion and have tasted the gift that is from heaven and have received the Rukha d’Qudsha 5 and have tasted the good word of Alaha and the power of the age that is to come, 6 to sin again and to be renewed to repentance from the beginning and to crucify and to disparage the Son of Alaha from the beginning. 7 For the earth, which drinks the rain that comes to it many times and produces the green herb that is useful to those because of whom it was cultivated, receives a blessing from Alaha. 8 But if it produces thorns and thistles, it is rejected and is not far away from a curse, but rather its end is a fire. 9 Now concerning you, my brothers, we are persuaded of those [things] that are proper and [that] are approaching life, even though we speak so.10 For Alaha is not wicked, that he forgets your works and your love that you have shown in his name, for you have ministered and do minister to the holy [ones]. 11 But we want each one of you to show this diligence to the completion of your hope up to the end 12 and to not be discouraged, but to be imitators of those who by faith and long-suffering have become heirs of the promise. 13 For when Alaha promised Avraham, because he had no one who was greater than himself by whom he could swear, he swore by himself 14 and said: I will certainly bless you and I will greatly multiply you. 15 And so he was long-suffering and received the promise. 16 For men swear by that which is greater than them and concerning every controversy that happens among them, the certain end of it is by oaths. 17 Because of this, Alaha especially wanted to show to the heirs of the promise that his promise would not change, so he bound it with oaths, 18 that by two things that are unchangeable in which Alaha is not able to lie, we who have sought refuge in him may have great comfort and may hold fast to the hope that was promised to us, 19 which we have as an anchor that holds our soul, so that it is not shaken and it enters within the veil, 20 where Yeshue previously entered for us and became a priest forever in the likeness of Malkizedeq.
1

HEBREWS CHAPTER 7
Now this Malkizedeq was king of Shalim, a priest of the Most High Alaha. And he met Avraham returning from the slaughter of the kings and blessed him. 2 And Avraham separated out to him tithes of everything that was with him. Now his name is interpreted, “king of uprightness,” and again, “king of Shalim,” that is, “king of peace,” 3 whose father and mother are not written in the genealogies, nor the beginning of his days, nor the completion of his life. But Page 233 of 276
1

in the likeness of the Son of Alaha, his priesthood remains forever. 4 Now consider how great this [man was], to whom Avraham the patriarch gave tithes of the first [things]. 5 For those of the sons of Lewi who received the priesthood have the commandment of the Namusa, that they should receive tithes from the people, from their brothers, when they also came from the loin[s] of Avraham. 6 But this [man], who is not written in their genealogies, took tithes from Avraham and blessed him who had received the promise. 7 And without controversy, he who is less is blessed by him who is greater than him. 8 And here men who die receive tithes. But there he [is] about whom the scripture testifies that he is alive. 9 And as one may say, by way of Avraham, even Lewi who received the tithes also paid tithes.10 For he was yet in the loin[s] of his father when he met Malkizedeq. 11 Therefore, if perfection is by way of the priesthood of the Lewaya, by which the Namusa was established for the people, why was it necessary that another priest should be raised up in the likeness of Malkizedeq? Then he [would have] said, “He will be in the likeness of Ahrun.” 12 But in the same way as a change took place in the priesthood, so a change also took place in the Namusa. 13 For he about whom these [things] were spoken was born of another tribe, from which no man ever ministered at the altar. 14 For it is revealed that our Lord rose up from Yehudah, from a tribe about which Mushe did not say anything concerning the priesthood. 15 And yet it is further known in that he said that another priest will rise up in the likeness of Malkizedeq, 16 who was not according to the Namusa of fleshly commandments, but was according to the power of life that is endless. 17 For he testified about him: You are a priest forever in the likeness of Malkizedeq. 18 Now the change that happened to the first commandment [was] because of its lack of power and because it had no profit. 19 For the Namusa did not perfect anything. But a hope that is greater than it entered in its place, by which we are drawn near to Alaha. 20 And he confirmed it to us with oaths. 21 For they became priests without oaths, but this [one] with oaths, as he said to him by way of Dawid: Marya has sworn and will not lie, that you are a priest forever in the likeness of Malkizedeq. 22 [In] all of this is this covenant better, for Yeshue was the security in it. 23 And those priests were many, because they died and were not allowed to continue. 24 But this [one], because he remains forever, his priesthood does not pass away. 25 And he is able to give life forever to those who come near to Alaha by way of him, for he is always alive and sends up prayer for them. 26 For a priest like this [one] is also right for us, [one who is] pure, without evil and without impurity, one who is separated from sins and elevated higher than heaven 27 and has no need daily, like the high priests, to first offer sacrifices for his sins and then for the people, for this he did one time, in that he offered himself. 28 For the Namusa established weak men [as] priests, but the word of the oaths that was after the Namusa [established] the Son [as] perfect forever.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 8
Now the first [point] of all these [things is that] we have a high priest who is seated on the right hand of the throne of the majesty in heaven. 2 And he is a minister of the sanctuary and of the tabernacle of truth that Alaha pitched and not man. 3 For every high priest is ordained to offer offerings and sacrifices. Because of this, it was right for this [one] to have something to offer also. 4 And if he were on earth, he would not even be a priest, because there are priests who offer offerings as in the Namusa, 5 those who minister for a type and for shadows of those [things] that are in heaven, as was said to Mushe while he was making the tabernacle: See and make Page 234 of 276
1

everything according to the type that was shown to you in the mountain. 6 And now, Yeshue-Meshikha has received a ministry that is more excellent than that, as also that covenant in which he was made the mediator is more excellent. So [it is] with the promises that are more excellent than what was given. 7 For if the first [covenant] was without fault, there would be no place for this second. 8 For he found fault with them and said: Behold, the days come, says Marya, when I will complete for the household of Israyel and for the household of Yehudah, a new covenant, 9 not like that covenant that I gave to their fathers in the day that I held [them] by their hand and brought them out of the land of Egypt. Because they did not remain in my covenant, I also rejected them, says Marya.10 And this [is] the covenant that I will give to the household of Israyel after those days, says Marya. I will put my Namusa in their minds and I will write it on their hearts and I will be Alaha to them and they will be a people to me. 11 And a man will not teach his fellow-citizen or even his brother and say, “Know Marya,” because all will know me, from the youngest of them up to the oldest. 12 And I will free them from their wickedness and I will not remember their sins again. 13 By that which he called new, he made the first old, and that which is outdated and old is near to corruption.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 9
Now in the first [covenant] there were ordinances of service and an earthly sanctuary. 2 For the first tabernacle that was made had a candlestick and a table and show-bread, and it was called the sanctuary. 3 And the inner tabernacle that was behind the second veil was called the holy of holies. 4 And in it there was the censer of gold and the ark of the covenant that was completely overlaid with gold and it had a pot of gold that had the manna and the rod of Ahrun that sprouted and the tablets of the covenant, 5 and on top of it, cherubim of glory that were overshadowing the mercy seat. But there is not time to speak about each one of these [things] that were so arranged. 6 And into the outer tabernacle the priests were always entering and performing their service. 7 But into the inner tabernacle once a year the high priest entered alone with the blood that he offered for himself and for the wrong-doing of the people. 8 Now by this, the Rukha d’Qudsha was making known that the way to the holy [things] was not yet revealed, as long as the first tabernacle was standing. 9 This was a symbol for that time, in which offerings and sacrifices were offered that were not able to perfect the conscience of him who offered them,10 but [were] only in food and drink and in washings of various kinds that are commandments of the flesh that were established until the time of a reformation. 11 Now Meshikha who has come [was] a high priest of the good [things] that he did. And he entered the great and perfect tabernacle that was not made by hands and was not of these created [things]. 12 And he did not enter with the blood of goats or of calves, but with his own blood, he entered the sanctuary one time and obtained redemption forever. 13 For if the blood of goats and of calves and the ash of a heifer was sprinkled on those who were defiled and it made them holy to the cleansing of their flesh, 14 then how much more will the blood of Meshikha, who by the eternal Rukha offered himself without spot to Alaha, cleanse our conscience from dead works that we may serve the living Alaha? 15 Because of this, he became the mediator of the new covenant, so that by his death he would become the deliverance for those who have transgressed against the first covenant, that those who were called to the eternal inheritance should receive the promise. 16 For where there is a covenant, it shows the death of him who made it, 17 but it is established only Page 235 of 276
1

concerning a dead [person], because as long as he who made it is alive, there is no usefulness in it. 18 Because of this, neither was the first [covenant] established without blood. 19 For when the whole commandment had been commanded by Mushe to all the people according to the Namusa, Mushe took the blood of a heifer and water, with wool of scarlet and hyssop, and he sprinkled [it] over the scrolls and over all the people 20 and said to them: This is the blood of that covenant that is commanded to you by Alaha. 21 He also sprinkled part of the blood over the tabernacle and over all the vessels of the service, 22 because everything is cleansed by blood in the Namusa, and without the shedding of blood there is no forgiveness. 23 For it was necessary that these that are a type of the heavenly [things] should be purified with those [things], and these heavenly [things] by sacrifices that are more excellent than those. 24 For Meshikha did not enter the sanctuary that was made by hands that was a type of that true [one], but he entered into heaven to appear before the presence of Alaha for us. 25 Neither [was it necessary] to offer himself many times, as the high priest did when he entered the sanctuary every year with blood that [was] not his own. 26 Otherwise, it would be required that he should suffer many times since the beginning of the age. But now in the end of the age, he has offered himself one time by his sacrificing to abolish sin. 27 And as it is appointed to men that they should die one time, and after their death [is] the judgment, 28 so also Meshikha was offered one time. And in his person he sacrificed [for] the sins of many and he will appear a second time without sins for the life of those who wait for him.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 10
For the Namusa had a shadow of good [things] to come, not the substance of the things themselves. Because of this, although these same sacrifices were offered every year, they were never able to perfect those who offered them. 2 For if they had perfected [them], then doubtless they would have stopped their offerings, because their conscience would no longer trouble them with sins once they have been cleansed. 3 But by the sacrifices, they brought their sins to remembrance every year, 4 for the blood of bulls and of goats is not able to cleanse sins. 5 Because of this, when he entered the world he said, “You are not pleased with sacrifices and offerings, but you have clothed me with a body. 6 And you have not asked for burnt offerings that are for sins.” 7 Then I said: Behold, I come. For in the beginning of the writings it is written about me, I will do your will, [oh] Alaha. 8 Above he said: You do not desire sacrifices and offerings and burnt offerings that are for sins, those that are offered according to the Namusa. 9 And after that he said: Behold, I have come to do your will, [oh] Alaha. By this he annulled the first, so that he would establish the second.10 For in this, his will, we are made holy by the offering of the body of Yeshue-Meshikha one time. 11 For every high priest who stood and served daily offered these same sacrifices that were never able to cleanse sins. 12 But this [one] offered one sacrifice for sins and sat down at the right hand of Alaha forever. 13 And he remains [there] from now on, until his enemies will be placed [as] a footstool under his feet. 14 For with one offering he perfected those who were made holy by him forever. 15 Now the Rukha d’Qudsha also [is] a witness to us for he said: 16 This is the covenant that I will give to them after those days, says Marya. I will place my Namusa in their minds and I will write it on their hearts, 17 and I will not remember their wickedness and their sins. 18 Now where there is forgiveness of sins, an offering for sins is not required. 19 We have, therefore, my brothers, boldness in the entering of the sanctuary by the blood of Yeshue 20 and a way of life that is now made new for us Page 236 of 276

by the veil that is his flesh. 21 And we have a high priest over the house of Alaha. 22 Therefore, we should come near with a steadfast heart and with the confidence of faith, our hearts being sprinkled and pure from an evil conscience and our body washed with pure water. 23 And we should persist in the confession of our hope and we should not waver, for he is faithful who promised us. 24 And we should gaze on one another with an encouragement to love and good works. 25 And we should not forsake our assembly, as is the custom for some, but we should desire [to be with] one another, especially the more you see that day approach. 26 For if by his will a man should sin after he has received knowledge of the truth, there is no longer a sacrifice that may be offered for sins, 27 but a terrible judgment is prepared and the zeal of fire that will devour the adversaries. 28 For if he who transgressed against the Namusa of Mushe died at the mouth of two or three witnesses without mercy, 29 how much more do you suppose will he receive capital punishment, who has trampled on the Son of Alaha and has counted the blood of his covenant, by which he was made holy like that of any man, and has despised the Rukha of grace? 30 We know him, who said: Vengeance is mine and I will repay, and again, Marya will judge his people. 31 There is a great fear to fall into the hands of the living Alaha. 32 Remember, therefore, the first days, those in which you received immersion and endured a great contest of sufferings, with reproach and with adversities, 33 and that you were spectacles and also were associated with men who endured these [things]. 34 And you were sorry for those who were imprisoned and you endured the robbery of your possessions with joy, because you knew that you had a possession in heaven that is greater and does not pass away. 35 Therefore, do not lose the boldness that you have, for it will have a great reward. 36 For endurance is necessary for you to do the will of Alaha and to receive the promise: 37 Because it is a little, even a very short time, that he who comes will come and he will not delay. 38 Now the upright will live by my faith and if he should be discouraged, I will not be pleased with him. 39 But we are not of the drawing back that leads to loss, but of the faith that obtains for us our life.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 11
Now faith is the persuasion concerning those [things] that are in hope, as if they had in fact happened, and the evidence of those [things] that are not seen. 2 And in this there is a testimony about the ancient [ones]. 3 For by faith we understand that the ages were prepared by the word of Alaha and [that] those [things] that are seen were from those [things] that are not seen. 4 By faith, Habeil offered a sacrifice that was more excellent than that of Qayen to Alaha, and because of it, there is a testimony about him that he was upright. And Alaha testified to his offering and because of it, although [he is] dead, he speaks. 5 By faith, Khenuk was removed and did not taste death. And he was not found, because Alaha had removed him, for before he removed him, there was a testimony about him that he pleased Alaha. 6 Now without faith, no one is able to please Alaha. For he who comes near to Alaha is required to believe that he is and [that] he is a rewarder of those who seek him. 7 By faith, Nukh, when it was told to him about those [things] that are not seen, feared and made for himself an ark for the life of his household, by which he condemned the world and became heir of the uprightness that is by faith. 8 By faith, Avraham, when he was called to leave for a place that he was going to receive for an inheritance, obeyed and went out, not knowing where he was going. 9 By faith, he was a settler in the land that was promised to him as in a foreign country and he lived in tents with Iskhaq and Yaquv, his Page 237 of 276
1

fellow-heirs of the promise,10 for he was waiting for a city that had a foundation, whose craftsman and maker is Alaha. 11 By faith also, Sera, who was barren, received strength to receive seed and when her years were past, she gave birth, because she was convinced that he who had promised her was faithful. 12 Because of this, from one who was failing in old age, many [people] were born, as the stars in heaven and as the sand on the shore of the sea that has no number. 13 These all died in faith and did not receive their promise, but they saw it from a distance and rejoiced in it and confessed that they were strangers and settlers on the earth. 14 Now those who say these [things] demonstrate that they seek their city. 15 And if they were seeking that city from which they came out, they had an opportunity to return again [and] to go to it. 16 But now it is evident that they were longing for a better [city] than that, for the [one] that is in heaven. Because of this, Alaha was not ashamed to be called their Alaha, for he has prepared a city for them. 17 By faith, Avraham in his trial offered Iskhaq and lifted up his only [son] on the altar, whom he had received by promise, 18 for it was said to him: In Iskhaq your seed will be called. 19 And he reasoned in himself that Alaha was able even to raise [him] from the dead, and because of this, he was given back to him [as] in a parable. 20 By faith regarding what was going to be, Iskhaq blessed Yaquv and Isuw. 21 By faith, when he was dying, Yaquv blessed each one of the sons of Yauseph and worshipped [leaning] on the top of his staff. 22 By faith, Yauseph, when he was dying, remembered the departure of the sons of Israyel and directed [them] concerning his bones. 23 By faith, the parents of Mushe hid him after he was born [for] three months, because they saw that he was a special child and they were not afraid of the commandment of the king. 24 By faith, Mushe, when he was a man, insisted that he should not be called a son of the daughter of Pharaoh. 25 And he chose to be in adversity with the people of Alaha and, not even for a short time, to be merry in sin. 26 And he considered that the wealth of the reproach of Meshikha was more excellent than the treasures of Egypt, for he looked at the payment of the reward. 27 By faith, he left Egypt and was not afraid of the fury of the king. And he endured as one who has seen Alaha, who is not visible. 28 By faith, he kept the Feast of Petskha and the sprinkling of blood, so that he who destroyed the firstborn should not approach them. 29 By faith, they crossed over the Yama-Desup, as on dry ground, in which the Egyptians were drowned when they dared to enter it. 30 By faith, the walls of Irikhu fell after they had been surrounded [for] seven days. 31 By faith, Rakhav, the harlot, was not destroyed with those who did not obey, because she received the spies in peace. 32 And what more can I say? For the time is [too] short for me to tell about Gedeun and about Baraq and about Shemshun and about Naphtakh (Yaphtakh) and about Dawid and about Shemuyel and about the rest of the prophets, 33 those who by faith overcame kingdoms and worked [with] uprightness and received the promises and shut the mouth[s] of lions 34 and quenched the power of fire and were delivered from the edge of the sword and were strengthened of weaknesses and became mighty in battle and routed the armies of the enemies 35 and gave [back] to women their children by raising of the dead. And others died in tortures and did not expect to escape, so that they would have the better resurrection. 36 Now others entered into jeering and beatings, others were delivered to prisons and to captivities, 37 others were stoned, others were sawed apart, others died by the edge of the sword, others wandered about clothed with the skins of lambs and of goats and were needy and troubled and wearied, 38 men of whom the world was not worthy. And they were as forgotten [ones] in the wilderness and in the mountains and in the caves and in the holes of the earth. 39 And all these, about whom there is a testimony by their faith, did not receive the promise, 40 because Alaha had considered beforehand our benefit, that they should not be perfected without us. Page 238 of 276

HEBREWS CHAPTER 12
Because of this also, we, who have all these witnesses that surround us like a cloud, should unfasten all our burdens from us, even the sin that is always prepared for us, and we should run with patience this race that is set for us. 2 And we should look at Yeshue, who was the initiator and finisher of our faith, who for the joy there was for him endured the cross and discounted the shame and sat down at the right hand of the throne of Alaha. 3 See, therefore, how much he endured from sinners who are contrary to themselves, so that you should not be weary or your soul become faint. 4 You have not yet come to [shedding of] blood in the contest that is against sin. 5 And you have forgotten the instruction, which says to you as to children: My son, do not disregard the discipline of Marya, nor let your soul faint when you are reproved by him. 6 For Marya disciplines him whom he loves and scourges the sons with whom he is pleased. 7 Therefore, endure discipline, because Alaha is dealing with you as with sons. For what son is there whom his father does not discipline? 8 And if you are without the discipline with which everyone is disciplined, you have become strangers and not sons. 9 And if our fathers of the flesh disciplined us and we respect them, how much more then ought we to obey our spiritual Father and live?10 For those for a short time disciplined us according to what they wanted, but Alaha [disciplines us] for our benefit, so that we will share in his holiness. 11 Now at the time, no discipline is thought to be [a matter] of joy, but of sorrow. But in the end it bears the fruit of peace and of justification to those who are trained by it. 12 Because of this, strengthen your weak hands and your trembling knees 13 and make straight paths for your feet, so that the leg that is limping will not stumble, but be healed. 14 Run after peace with everyone and after holiness, without which a man does not see our Lord. 15 And be watchful, so that no one will be found among you who lacks the grace of Alaha, or so that a root of bitterness will not produce a flower and harm you and by it, many should be corrupted, 16 or [so that] no one will be found among you who is a fornicator and a careless [one], such as Isuw, who sold his birthright for one meal. 17 For you know that also afterwards he wanted to inherit the blessing, but was rejected, for he did not find a place of repentance, although he begged for it with tears. 18 For you have not come near to the fire [of the mountain] that burned and was tangible, nor even to the darkness and mist and storm, 19 nor to the sound of the trumpet and the voice of words, which those who heard asked that it should not continue to be spoken to them. 20 For they were not able to bear what they were commanded: If even an animal should come near to the mountain, it should be stoned. 21 And the sight was so terrible that Mushe said: I am afraid and I am trembling. 22 But you have come near to the mountain of Tsehyun and to the city of the living Alaha, to the Urishlem that is in heaven, and to the multitudes of numbers of angels 23 and to the church of the firstborn, who are written in heaven, and to Alaha, the judge of all, and to the spiritual [things] of the upright [ones] who are matured, 24 and to Yeshue, the mediator of the new covenant, and to the sprinkling of his blood that speaks more than that of Habeil. 25 Watch, therefore, so that you will not refuse [to hear] him who speaks to you. For if those who refuse him who speaks with them on earth are not delivered, how much more we, if we refuse him who speaks with us from heaven, 26 whose voice shook the earth? But now he has promised and said: Again, once more, I will shake, not only the earth, but also heaven. 27 Now this that he said, “Once more,” indicates a change of those [things] that are shaken, because they are [things that are] made, so that those Page 239 of 276
1

that are unshakable may remain. 28 Therefore, because we have received a kingdom that is unshakable, we should hold fast to the grace, by which we may serve and may please Alaha, with reverence and with fear. 29 For our Alaha is a devouring fire.

HEBREWS CHAPTER 13
Love of the brothers should continue in you. 2 And do not forget [to have] compassion to strangers, for by this some have been worthy to receive angels, being unaware [of it]. 3 Remember those who are imprisoned, as if you are imprisoned with them. Remember those who are troubled, because you [also] are clothed with flesh as a man. 4 Marriage is honorable in all and their bed is pure, but Alaha will judge fornicators and adulterers. 5 Your mind should not love money, but what you have should be sufficient for you. For Marya has said: I will not leave you and I will not let go of you. 6 And we can say confidently: My Marya is my helper. I will not be afraid. What does a man do to me? 7 Remember your leaders who have spoken the word of Alaha with you. Consider the result of their manners of life and imitate their faith. 8 Yeshue-Meshikha is [the same] yesterday and today and forever. 9 Do not be led away by strange and diverse teachings, for it is good that we strengthen our hearts with grace and not with things to eat, because those who have walked in them have not been benefited.10 And we have an altar from which those who serve in the tabernacle have no right to eat. 11 For the animals, those whose blood the high priests brought into the sanctuary for sins, their flesh was burned outside of the camp. 12 Because of this also, Yeshue, so that he would make holy his people by his blood, suffered outside of the city. 13 And also we, therefore, should go out to him outside of the camp, bearing his reproach. 14 For we have no city that remains here, but we expect one to come. 15 And by way of him, we should always offer up the sacrifices of praise to Alaha, which is the fruit of lips that give thanks to his name. 16 And do not forget loving-kindness and sharing with the poor, for with these sacrifices a man pleases Alaha. 17 Be convicted by your leaders and obey them, for they watch for your lives as men who give an accounting of you, so that with joy they may do this and not with groanings, because that is not profitable for you. 18 Pray for us, for we trust that we have a good conscience, that in everything we want to conduct ourselves well. 19 I am begging you to do this especially, that I may be returned to you quickly. 20 Now may the Alaha of peace, who brought up from the dead the great Shepherd of the flock by the blood of the everlasting covenant, who is Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord, 21 mature you in every good work to do his will and to perform in us what is pleasing before him, by way of Yeshue-Meshikha, to whom [be] glory forever and ever. Amen. 22 And I am begging you, my brothers, to be long-suffering in [this] word of encouragement, because I have written to you in few [words]. 23 And know that our brother Timothy is set free, and if he comes soon, I will see you with him. 24 Greet all your leaders and all the holy [ones]. All who are from Italy greet you. 25 Grace [be] with all of you. Amen.

JAMES
CHAPTER 1
Yaquv, a servant of Alaha and of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, to the twelve tribes that are scattered among the nations: Peace. 2 You should have all joy, my brothers, when you enter into various and numerous trials, 3 for you know that the experience of faith causes you to obtain patience. 4 Now patience should have a full work that you may be mature and complete and not lacking in anything. 5 Now if any of you lacks wisdom, he should ask [for it] from Alaha, who gives generously to all and does not reproach and it will be given to him. 6 But he should ask in faith, not doubting, for he who doubts is like the waves of the sea that the wind stirs up. 7 And that man should not expect to receive anything from Marya, 8 who doubts in his mind and is troubled in all his ways. 9 And the humble brother should boast in his lifted position10 and the rich in his humility, because as the flower of an herb, likewise he passes away. 11 For the sun will rise with its heat and will dry up the herb and its flower will fall and the beauty of its appearance will be destroyed. So also the rich [man] withers in his ways. 12 Blessed [is] the man who endures trials, so that when he is examined, he may receive the crown of life that Alaha promised to those who love him. 13 No one should say when he is tempted, “I am tempted by Alaha,” for Alaha is not tempted with evil [things] and does not tempt anyone. 14 But each man is tempted by his [own] desire and he desires and is dragged away 15 and this desire conceives and produces sin. And sin, when it is matured, produces death. 16 Do not err, my beloved brothers. 17 Every good and complete gift [is] from above, coming down from the Father of lights, with whom there is not any inconstancy, not even a shadow of change. 18 It is he [who] desired and fathered us by the word of truthfulness that we would be the first[fruit] of his created [ones]. 19 And you, my beloved brothers, everyone of you should be quick to hear and slow to speak and slow to be angry. 20 For the anger of man does not serve the justification of Alaha. 21 Because of this, put away from you all uncleanness and the abundance of wickedness and receive with meekness the word that is implanted in our nature that is able to give life to your souls. 22 And be doers of the word and not hearers only and do not deceive yourselves. 23 For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer of it, this [one] is like him who sees his face in a mirror, 24 for he sees himself and passes on and forgets what kind [of man] he was. 25 And everyone who looks into the fulfilled Namusa of liberty and remains in it is not a hearer of a report that is forgotten, but a doer of deeds. And this [one] will be blessed in his deed. 26 And if a man supposes that he serves Alaha and he does not hold his tongue, but the heart of this [man] deceives him, [then] his service is unprofitable. 27 For the service that is pure and holy before Alaha the Father is this, to visit orphans and widows in their troubles and to keep oneself without spot from the world.

JAMES CHAPTER 2
My brothers, do not hold to the faith of the glory of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha with respect of persons. 2 For if a man should enter your assembly with rings of gold or with beautiful Page 241 of 276
1

garments and a poor man should enter with filthy garments, 3 and you look at that one clothed with beautiful garments and say to him, “Sit here [in] a good [place],” and to the poor man you say, “Stand back or sit here before the footstool,” 4 behold, are you not discriminating among yourselves and have you [not] become expounders of evil reasonings? 5 Hear, my beloved brothers, was it not the poor of the world, but [who are] rich in faith [that] Alaha chose to be heirs in the kingdom that Alaha promised to those who love him? 6 But you have rejected the poor. Behold, do not rich [men] elevate themselves over you and drag you to court? 7 Behold, do they not reproach the good name that was called on you? 8 And if you fulfill the Namusa of Alaha in this, as it is written: You should love your neighbor as yourself, you are doing well. 9 But if you are respecting persons, you commit sin and you are reproved by the Namusa as transgressors of the Namusa.10 For he who keeps the whole Namusa and offends in one [thing] is found guilty of the whole Namusa. 11 For he who said: Do not commit adultery, said, do not kill. Now if you do not commit adultery, but you kill, you have become a transgressor of the Namusa. 12 So speak and so act, as people who are going to be judged by the law of liberty. 13 For judgment will be without mercy on that one who has not practiced mercy. By mercy, you will be elevated above judgment. 14 What is the profit, my brothers, if someone says, “I have faith,” and has no works? Is his faith able to give him life? 15 And if a brother or a sister should be naked and lacking food for the day 16 and one of you says to them, “Go in peace, be warm and be satisfied,” and you do not give them what is necessary for the body, what is the profit? 17 So also, faith alone without works is dead. 18 For a man will say to you, “You have faith,” and to me, “I have works.” Show me your faith without works and I will show you my faith by my works. 19 You believe that Alaha is one. You do well! Even the demons believe and tremble. 20 Now do you want to understand, oh frail man, that faith without works is dead? 21 Was not our father Avraham justified by works when he offered Iskhaq his son on the altar? 22 You see that his faith aided his works and [that] by works, his faith was matured. 23 And the scripture was fulfilled that said: Avraham believed in Alaha and it was counted to him for justification, and he was called the friend of Alaha. 24 You see that by works a man is justified and not by faith alone. 25 So also, was not Rakhav the harlot justified by works when she took in the spies and sent them out by another way? 26 As the body without the spirit is dead, so also faith without works is dead.

JAMES CHAPTER 3
You should not have many teachers among you, my brothers, but know that we are liable [to have] a greater judgment. 2 For we all offend [in] many [things]. Anyone who does not offend in word, this [one] is a mature man who is also able to subject his whole body. 3 For behold, we place bits in the mouths of horses, so that they may be tamed by us and we turn their whole body. 4 Also, the mighty boats, although harsh winds drive them, are turned by a small piece of wood to the place that the pilot wants to see. 5 So also, the tongue is a small member and it elevates itself. Also, a small fire causes large forests to burn. 6 And the tongue is a fire and the world of sin is like a forest. And the tongue, although it is [one] among the members, marks our whole body and sets on fire the successions of our generations that roll on as wheels and it also burns with fire. 7 For all the natures of animals and of birds and reptiles, of the sea and of dry land, are subjected to the nature of mankind. 8 But the tongue, no one is able to subdue. This evil, when it is not restrained, is full of the poison of death. 9 With it we bless Marya and Father and Page 242 of 276
1

with it we curse men, who are made in the likeness of Alaha.10 And from the same mouth proceed blessings and cursings. My brothers, it is not right that these [things] be done so. 11 Can sweet and bitter water come out of one fountain? 12 Or can a fig tree, my brothers, produce olives, or a vine, figs? So also, you cannot make salty water sweet. 13 Who is wise and instructed among you? He should show his works with praiseworthy actions, with humble wisdom. 14 But if you have bitter envy or contention in your hearts, do not elevate yourselves above the truth and lie, 15 because this wisdom does not come down from above, but is earthly, from the reasonings of the soul and from demons. 16 For where there is envy and contention, there also [is] confusion and everything that is evil. 17 Now the wisdom that is from above is pure and full of peace and humble and obedient and full of mercy and good fruits and is without division and does not respect persons. 18 And the fruit of justification is sown in quietness by those who serve peace.

JAMES CHAPTER 4
From where are wars and arguments among you? Is it not from the desires that war in your members? 2 You desire and you do not have. And you perish and are zealous, yet it does not come into your hands. And you strive and cause wars, yet you have not, because you have not asked. 3 You ask and do not receive, because you ask wrongly, so that you may nourish your desires. 4 Adulterers, do you not know that the friendship of this world is in opposition to Alaha? Therefore, he who wants to be a friend of this world becomes an opponent of Alaha. 5 Or do you think that the scripture fruitlessly said: The spirit that lives in us desires with envy? 6 But our Lord has given abundant grace to us. Because of this, he said: Alaha humbles the proud and gives grace to the humble. 7 Therefore, be subject to Alaha and stand against Satan and he will flee from you. 8 And come near to Alaha and he will come near to you. Cleanse your hands, [you] sinners. Set apart your hearts, doubters of self. 9 Humble yourselves and mourn. And your laughter will be changed to mourning and your joy to sorrow.10 Humble yourselves before Marya and he will elevate you. 11 Do not speak against one another, my brothers, for he who speaks against his brother or judges his brother, speaks against the Namusa and judges the Namusa. And if you judge the Namusa, you are not a doer of the Namusa, but its judge. 12 There is one lawgiver and judge, who is able to give life and to destroy. But who are you that you are judging your neighbor? 13 Now what will we also say about those who say, “Today or tomorrow we will go to a certain city and we will work there [for] one year and we will do business and increase?” 14 And they do not know what will happen tomorrow. For what is our life, except a vapor that is seen a little while and [then] vanishes and is gone? 15 Instead, they should say, “If Marya wills and we live, we will do this or that.” 16 They boast in their pride. All boasting like this is evil. 17 And he who knows good and does not do it, to him it is sin.

JAMES CHAPTER 5
Oh rich [men], wail and weep for the miseries that will come on you, 2 for your wealth is corrupted and is rotten and your garments have been eaten by a moth. 3 And your gold and Page 243 of 276
1

your silver have tarnished and their tarnish will be a witness against you and it is going to eat your flesh. You have gathered a fire for you for the last days. 4 Behold, the wage of the laborers who have reaped your lands, which you have withheld, cries out. And the crying of the reapers has entered the ears of Marya d’Tsavauth. 5 For you have lived in pleasure on the earth and have been greedy and have nourished your bodies as in the day of slaughter. 6 You have condemned and killed the Just [one] and he did not stand against you. 7 But you, my brothers, be long-suffering until the coming of Marya, as the farmer who waits for the precious fruit of his ground and is long-suffering about it, until he receives the early and latter rain. 8 So also be long-suffering and establish your hearts, for the coming of our Lord draws close. 9 Do not murmur against one another, my brothers, so that you should not be judged, for behold, judgment stands before the door.10 Take the prophets [as] an example, my brothers, for long-suffering with respect to your trials, those who spoke in the name of Marya. 11 For behold, we give a blessing to those who have endured. You have heard of the endurance of Iyuv and have seen the result that Marya brought to pass for him, because Marya is merciful and compassionate. 12 Now above everything, my brothers, do not swear, neither by heaven, nor by earth, not even by [any] other oath. But rather, your word should be, “Yes, yes, and no, no,” so that you should not be condemned under judgment. 13 And if one of you should be in a trial, he should pray, and if he is glad, he should sing psalms. 14 And if one is sick, he should call for the elders of the church and they should pray for him and anoint him [with] oil in the name of our Lord. 15 And the prayer of faith will heal him who is sick and our Lord will raise him, and if [any] sins were committed by him, they will be forgiven. 16 Now confess your faults to one another and pray for one another to be healed, for great is the power of prayer that a just man prays. 17 Eliya was also a passionate man like us and he prayed that the rain would not fall on the earth. And it did not fall [for] three years and six months. 18 And again he prayed and the heaven gave rain and the earth produced its fruit. 19 My brothers, if one of you errs from the way of truthfulness and someone causes him to repent from his error, 20 he should know that he who turns back a sinner from the error of his way will give life to his soul from death and will blot out a multitude of his sins.

I PETER
CHAPTER 1
Peter, an apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha, to the chosen [ones] and settlers who are scattered in Pontus and in Galatia and in Cappadocia and in Asia and in Bithynia, 2 those who were chosen by the foreknowledge of Alaha the Father by the holiness of the Rukha to be to the obedience and the purifying by sprinkling of the blood of Yeshue-Meshikha: Grace and peace be multiplied to you. 3 Blessed be Alaha, the Father of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, who by his great mercy has fathered us anew to the hope of life by the resurrection of Yeshue-Meshikha, 4 and to an incorruptible and undefiled and unfailing inheritance that is prepared for you in heaven, 5 being kept by the power of Alaha and by faith for the life that is prepared to be revealed in the last times, 6 in which you will rejoice forever. Even though in this time you are discouraged a little by the various trials that have happened to you, 7 [it is] so that the testing of your faith may appear more precious than refined gold that is refined by fire, for the glory and honor and praise at the appearing of Yeshue-Meshikha. 8 You have not seen him, yet love, and by his faith, you rejoice with glorious joy that is unspeakable, 9 that you would receive the reward of your faith, the life of your souls.10 [It is] that life that the prophets investigated when they prophesied about the grace that was to come that has been given to you. 11 And they searched for what time [that] the Rukha d’Meshikha that was living in them showed and testified, when the sufferings of Meshikha and his glory that followed would come to pass. 12 And it was revealed to all who were seeking that they were not seeking for themselves, but they were prophesying these [things] for us that now are revealed to you, by way of those [things] that we announced by the Rukha d’Qudsha that was sent from heaven, into which [things] even the angels desired to investigate. 13 Because of this, gird up the loins of your thinking and be completely watchful and hope for the joy that will come to you at the appearing of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha 14 as obedient children. And do not associate again with your former desires that you ignorantly desired. 15 Rather, be holy in all your ways, as he who called you is holy, 16 because it is written: Be holy, even as I am holy. 17 And if you call on the Father, before whom there is no respect of persons and [who] judges everyone according to his works, conduct yourself with reverence during this time of your dwelling in a foreign country, 18 knowing that you were not redeemed with silver that is corruptible, nor with gold, by your empty works that you received from your fathers, 19 but with the precious blood of the lamb, who has no spot or blemish, who is Meshikha. 20 He was previously appointed to this before the foundations of the world and was revealed in the end of times for you, 21 who by way of him have believed in Alaha, who raised him from the dead and gave him glory, that your faith and your hope would be in Alaha. 22 Your lives are becoming holy by the obedience of the truth and becoming full of love without respect of persons, so that you may love one another out of a pure and mature heart. 23 Like a man, you were born anew, not of seed that is corruptible, but of that which is not corruptible, by the living word of Alaha that stands forever. 24 Because, all flesh [is] grass and all its beauty as a flower of the field. The grass dries up and the flower withers, 25 yet the word of our Alaha stands forever. And this is the word that was preached to you.

I PETER CHAPTER 2
Therefore, put away from you all wickedness and all deceit and respect of persons and envy and accusation. 2 And be like young infants and desire the word, as for pure and spiritual milk by which you are nourished to life, 3 since you have tasted and seen that Marya is good. 4 The one to whom you are drawn is the living stone that men have rejected, yet with Alaha [is] chosen and honored. 5 And you also, as living stones, are built up and are spiritual temples and holy priests to offer sacrifices that are acceptable before Alaha by way of Yeshue-Meshikha. 6 For it is told in the scripture: Behold, I lay in Tsehyun an approved and precious stone in the head of the corner and he who believes on him will not be ashamed. 7 Therefore, this honor is given to you who believe. But to those who are not convinced, 8 He is a stone of stumbling and a rock of offense. And they stumbled at him, in that they were not persuaded by the word to which they were appointed. 9 Now you are a chosen generation that serves as a priest for the kingdom, a holy people, a redeemed assembly, to declare the praises of him who called you from darkness to his excellent light,10 you who previously were not counted a people, but now [are] the people of Alaha. There were even no mercies on you, but now mercies are poured out on you. 11 My beloved [ones], I beg you, as strangers and as settlers, be separate from all the desires of the body, those that wage a war against the soul. 12 And your conduct should be proper before all men, [so that] those who speak evil words against you may see your good works and may praise Alaha in the day of testing. 13 And be subject to all men because of Alaha, to kings because of their authority 14 and to judges because they are sent by him for the punishment of wrong-doers and for the praise of the workers of good [things]. 15 For so is the will of Alaha, that by your good works you would shut the mouth of the foolish who do not know Alaha. 16 [You are] as free men, and not as men whose freedom is made a veil to them for their wickedness, but as servants of Alaha. 17 Honor everyone. Love your brothers and reverence Alaha and honor kings. 18 And those who are servants among you, be subject to your lords with reverence, not only to the good and to the humble, but also to the hard and difficult, 19 for they will have grace before Alaha, who because of a good conscience endure sorrows that come on them wrongfully. 20 But what praise will they have who endure pressures because of their transgressions? But when you do what is good and they pressure you and you endure, then your praise is great with Alaha. 21 For to this you were called, because even Meshikha died for us and left us this example that you should walk in his footsteps: 22 He did not commit sin, neither was deceit found in his mouth, 23 who was reviled, yet did not revile, and was suffering, yet did not threaten, but delivered his case to the judge of uprightness. 24 And he carried all our sins and lifted them in his body to the cross, so that being dead to sin, we would have life by his justification, for by his wounds you were healed. 25 For you were wandering like sheep, yet you are now returned to the shepherd and overseer of your souls.

I PETER CHAPTER 3
So also, wives, be subject to your husbands, so that those who are not persuaded by the word will be restored without difficulty by your good behavior, 2 when they observe that you Page 246 of 276
1

behave with reverence and with modesty. 3 And do not adorn yourselves with outer adornments of the braiding of your hair or of ornaments of gold or of costly clothes. 4 But adorn yourselves with the hidden man of the heart with a humble spirit, without corruption, an adornment that is costly before Alaha. 5 For so also previously, holy women who trusted in Alaha adorned themselves and were subject to their husbands, 6 as Sera was subject to Avraham and called him, “My lord,” whose daughters you are by good works, when you are not troubled by any fear. 7 And you men, likewise, live with your wives with knowledge. And hold them with honor as delicate vessels, because they will also inherit the gift of eternal life with you, for you should not be hindered in your prayers. 8 Now the conclusion [is] that all of you should be in agreement and you should suffer with those who suffer and be compassionate to one another and you should be merciful and humble. 9 And you should not repay anyone evil for evil, nor abuse for abuse, but in contrast to these [things], bless, for you were called to this, so that you may inherit a blessing.10 Therefore, he who desires life and loves to see good days should keep his tongue from evil and his lips should speak no deceit. 11 He should turn away from evil and do good and should seek peace and pursue it, 12 because the eyes of Marya [are] on the just [ones] and his ears to hear them and the face of Marya [is] against evil [ones]. 13 And who is he who can do evil to you, if you are zealous of good [things]? 14 And if you should suffer on account of uprightness, you are blessed. And do not be afraid of those who frighten you and do not be troubled. 15 But make holy Marya Meshikha in your hearts and be ready to make a defense to all who ask you a word concerning the hope of your faith, with meekness and with fear, 16 having a good conscience, so that those who speak about you as about evil men will be ashamed, as men who belittle your good behavior that is in Meshikha. 17 For it is profitable to you that you suffer evil [things] while you do good works (if therefore it is the will of Alaha) and not while you do evil [things]. 18 For even Meshikha died one time for our sins, the just [one] for sinners, that he would bring you to Alaha. And he died bodily, but lives spiritually. 19 And he preached to those souls who were held captive in Sheol, 20 those who previously were disobedient in the days of Nukh, when [in] the long-suffering of Alaha he commanded an ark to be made, in hope of their repentance, yet only eight souls entered it and were kept alive on the water. 21 For you also live in the same type by immersion (not when you wash the body of filth, but when you confess Alaha with a pure conscience) and by the resurrection of Yeshue-Meshikha, 22 who was raised up to heaven and is at the right hand of Alaha and angels and authorities and powers are subject to him.

I PETER CHAPTER 4
If Meshikha therefore suffered for you in the flesh, you also should arm yourselves with this mind, for whoever dies in his flesh has ceased from all sins, 2 so that from now on, he should not live for the desires of men for as long as he is in the body, but for the will of Alaha. 3 For the time that has passed by is sufficient when you served in the will of the pagans, in excess and in drunkenness and in filthiness and in revelry and in the service of demons. 4 And behold, now they marvel and criticize you, in that you do not burn with passion with them in that former excess. 5 They will give an account to Alaha, who is going to judge the dead and the living. 6 For because of this, it was announced also to the dead, so that they should be judged as men in the flesh and [that] they should live in Alaha spiritually. 7 But the end of all approaches. Because of this, be sober and be watchful in prayer. 8 And before everything, have keen love for one another, Page 247 of 276
1

for love covers a multitude of sins. 9 And be compassionate to strangers without murmuring.10 And everyone of you should minister the gift that he received from Alaha to his friends, as good stewards of the diverse grace of Alaha. 11 All who speak should speak according to the word of Alaha and all who serve [should serve] as from the strength that Alaha has given to him, so that in all you do, Alaha will be glorified by way of Yeshue-Meshikha, whose glory and honor is forever and ever. Amen. 12 My beloved [ones], do not be amazed at the trials that have come to you, as though something strange had happened to you, because they are for your experience. 13 But rejoice because you share in the sufferings of Meshikha, that so you will also rejoice and be glad at the appearing of his glory. 14 And if you are reproached on account of the name of the Meshikha, you are blessed, because the glorious Rukha d’Alaha rests on you. 15 Only none of you should suffer as a murderer or as a thief or as a worker of evil [things]. 16 But if he suffers as a the Christ, he should not be ashamed, but he should glorify Alaha in this name. 17 For it is the time when judgment will begin from the house of Alaha and if it begins with us, what is the end of those who are disobedient to the gospel of Alaha? 18 And if the just scarcely will live, where will the wicked and the sinner be found? 19 Because of this, those who suffer according to the will of Alaha should commend to him their souls by good works, as to a faithful Creator.

I PETER CHAPTER 5
Now I ask of the elders who are among you, I, an elder, your friend and a witness of the sufferings of Meshikha and a participant of his glory that is going to be revealed, 2 feed the flock of Alaha that has been committed to you and perform [it] spiritually, not by necessity, but willingly, not for corrupt profits, but from your whole heart, 3 You should not be as lords of the flock, but as a good example for them, 4 so that when the chief of the shepherds is revealed, you will receive a crown of glory from him that will not fade. 5 And you, young ones, be subject to your elders and be clothed diligently with humbleness of mind toward one another, because Alaha is opposed to those who elevate themselves, but he gives grace to the humble. 6 Therefore, humble yourselves under the mighty hand of Alaha, so that he will elevate you in the time that is right. 7 And throw all your care on Alaha, because he is concerned for you. 8 Be watchful and remember, because your enemy, Satan, roars as a lion and walks about and seeks whom he may swallow. 9 Therefore, stand against him, being steadfast in faith and know that these sufferings also happen to your brothers who are in the world. 10 Now the Alaha of grace who has called us to his eternal glory by way of Yeshue-Meshikha, who has given us, while we endure these few trials, to be strengthened and to be made steadfast and to be established by him forever, 11 to him [be] glory and dominion and honor, forever and ever. Amen. 12 These few [things], as I think of [them], I wrote to you by way of Silvanus, a faithful brother. And I am persuading and bearing witness that this is the true grace of Alaha in which you stand. 13 The chosen church that is in Babel and Mark, my son, greet you. 14 Greet one another with a holy kiss. Peace [be] with all those who are in Meshikha. Amen.

II PETER
CHAPTER 1
Shimon Peter, a servant and apostle of Yeshue-Meshikha, to those who have been made worthy of the equally precious faith with us by the justification of our Lord and our Savior, Yeshue-Meshikha: 2 Grace and peace be multiplied to you in the acknowledgment of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 3 [It is] he who has given all these [things] of divine power, for life and the reverence of Alaha, by way of the acknowledgment of him who called us into his glory and excellence. 4 For by him he has given you great and precious promises, that by way of these, you would be sharers of the divine nature, having escaped from the corruption of the desires that are in the world. 5 Now while you are applying all this diligence, add to your faith, excellence, and to excellence, knowledge, 6 and to knowledge, self-control, and to self-control, endurance, and to endurance, reverence of Alaha, 7 and to reverence of Alaha, brotherly kindness, and to brotherly kindness, love. 8 For when these are found in you and increase, they establish you [as] neither worthless, nor without fruit in the acknowledgment of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 9 For he in whom these [things] are not found is blind so that he does not see, because he has forgotten the cleansing of his former sins.10 And concerning that, be especially diligent, my brothers, that by way of your good works, you would make your calling and your approval certain, for when you do these [things], you will never falter. 11 For so an entrance will be readily given to you to the eternal kingdom of our Lord and our Savior, Yeshue-Meshikha. 12 And concerning this, I did not give up reminding you continually about these [things], although you also know [them] well and are settled concerning this truth. 13 And I think that it is right that as long as I am in this body, I should stir you up by remembrance, 14 since I know that the absence of my body will be soon, as also our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha has made known to me. 15 And I am concerned that you will also continually have [this care], that even after my departure, you will have remembrance of these [things]. 16 For it was not following after sayings that were formed with skill [that] we made known to you the power and the coming of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, but after we were spectators of his majesty. 17 For after he received honor and glory from Alaha, the Father, when a voice came to him that [was] like this from glory, splendid in its greatness, “This is my beloved son, in whom I am pleased,” 18 we also heard this voice from heaven that came to him, when we were with him on the holy mountain. 19 And we also have a word of prophecy that is certain, which you do well when you look at it (as to a lamp that shines in a dark place until the day should dawn and the sun should rise) in your hearts, 20 knowing this first, that all prophecy was not a sending out of its own writing. 21 For prophecy never came by the will of man, but as they were being led by the sanctified Rukha, men of Alaha spoke sanctified [words].

II PETER CHAPTER 2
But there were also false prophets among the people, as also false teachers will be among you, who will introduce heresies of destruction and deny the Lord who bought them, Page 249 of 276
1

bringing on themselves swift destruction. 2 And many will follow their uncleanness, because of whom the way of truth will be reproached. 3 And with fraud and with babbling words they will exploit you, whose previous condemnation has not stopped and whose destruction does not sleep. 4 For indeed Alaha did not spare the angels who sinned, but cast them down in chains of darkness into the low [regions] and delivered them to be kept for the judgment of torment. 5 And he did not spare the former world, but protected Nukh, the eighth [person], a preacher of uprightness, when he brought a flood over the world of the wicked. 6 And when he burned the cities of Sedum and of Amura and condemned them by an overthrow, setting an example to the wicked who were to come, 7 he also delivered just Lut, who was oppressed by the unclean conduct of those who were lawless, 8 for as that upright [man] was living among them, in seeing and in hearing day after day, his just soul was tormented by [their] lawless works. 9 Marya knows how to deliver from trial those who reverence him, but he will keep the unjust for the day of judgment, when they will be tormented,10 especially those who follow after the flesh with the desire of defilement and rebel against lordship. [These are] daring [ones] and proud [ones], because they are not troubled when they blaspheme against the glory, 11 whereas angels that are greater than them in power and in might do not bring on themselves the judgment of blasphemy from Marya. 12 But these, as dumb animals [that] are by nature for slaughter and corruption, while blaspheming those [things] they do not know, will be corrupted in their own corruption, 13 being those who have wickedness [as] the wage of wickedness. To them, making merry that happens in the daytime is considered pleasure. [These are] defiled and full of blemishes, for they indulge themselves, while they are making merry in their idleness, 14 having eyes that are full of adultery and sins that do not come to an end, enticing people that are unstable and having a heart that is practiced in fraud, children of a curse, 15 who, having left the straight way, have swerved and gone in the way of Belam, the son of Bayur, who loved the wage of wickedness. 16 And the reproof that he had for his transgression [was] an ass, without a voice, who spoke with the voice of men [and] restrained the foolishness of the prophet. 17 These [men] are wells without water, clouds that are driven by a whirlwind, those for whom the blackness of darkness is reserved. 18 For while they speak vehement [words] of emptiness, they entice [again] with unclean desires of the flesh, those who had fled for a short time from these [men] who are living in error. 19 And they promise them liberty, while they are slaves of corruption, for by what a man is overcome, to this he is also enslaved. 20 For if, after they have fled from the pollutions of the world by the acknowledgment of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, even our Savior, when they are entangled again in the same [and] are overcome, their end will be worse than the beginning. 21 For it would have been better for them not to have known the way of justification, than having known [it], to turn backwards from the holy commandment that was committed to them. 22 But these [sayings] of a true proverb have happened to them, “A dog has returned to his vomit and the sow that was washed to wallowing in mud.”

II PETER CHAPTER 3
This second letter, my beloved [ones], I write to you now, in which I stir up by remembrance your proper thinking, 2 so that you will recall the words that were spoken before by the holy prophets and the commandment of our Lord and our Savior by way of the apostles, 3 knowing this first, that at the end of days mockers will come who will mock, walking according Page 250 of 276
1

to their own desires 4 and saying, “Where is the promise of his coming? For since our fathers have slept, everything continues the same from the beginning of the creation.” 5 For this is forgotten by them willingly, that the heaven[s] were from before, and the earth rose up out of the water and by way of water, by the word of Alaha. 6 Then by way of these [waters] the world overflowed with water and was destroyed. 7 But the heaven and the earth that are now are kept in store by his word, being reserved for fire on the day of the judgment and of the destruction of wicked men. 8 Now this one [thing] do not forget, my beloved [ones], that one day to Marya is as a thousand years and a thousand years as one day. 9 Marya does not delay in his promises as men consider delay, but he is long-suffering because of you, in that he does not want anyone to be destroyed, but rather [that] everyone should come to repentance.10 But the day of Marya will come as a thief, in which the heaven[s] will suddenly pass away and the elements, while burning, will dissolve and the earth and the works that are in it will not be found. 11 Since therefore all these [things] will be dissolved, how ought you to be in your conduct? [You should be] holy [ones] and with reverence for Alaha, 12 while you expect and you desire the coming of the day of Alaha, in which the heaven[s], being tried by fire, will be dissolved and the elements, while burning, will melt. 13 But we expect a new heaven and a new earth, according to his promise, in which justification will live. 14 Because of this, my beloved [ones], while you expect these [things], be diligent to be found by him without spot and without blemish in peace. 15 And you should consider the long-suffering of Marya [as] redemption, even as also our beloved brother Paul wrote to you according to the wisdom that was given to him. 16 As in all his letters, he speaks in them about these [things] (in which there are some [things] hard to understand) that those who are without instruction and are unstable pervert, as they also [pervert] the writings of the rest to their own loss. 17 You therefore, my beloved [ones], since you know [these things] beforehand, guard yourselves, so that you should not fall from your commitment, following after the error of those who are lawless. 18 But grow in grace and in the knowledge of our Lord and our redeemer, Yeshue-Meshikha, and of Alaha the Father, to whom [be] glory, both now and always, even for the days of eternity. Amen.

I JOHN
CHAPTER 1
We preach to you that which was from the beginning, which we have heard and seen with our eyes, sensed and touched with our hands, which is the word of life. 2 And life was revealed and we saw [it] and testify and preach to you the eternal life that was with the Father and was revealed to us. 3 And what we have seen and heard, we also make known to you, so that you would have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Yeshue-Meshikha. 4 And these [things] we write to you, so that our joy that is in you would be full. 5 And this is the gospel that we heard from him and we preach to you, that Alaha is light and there is no darkness in him at all. 6 And if we say that we have fellowship with him and walk in darkness, we are liars and we do not proceed in the truth. 7 But if we walk in the light as he is in the light, we have fellowship with one another and the blood of Yeshue his Son cleanses us from all of our sins. 8 And if we say that we have no sin, we deceive ourselves and the truth is not in us. 9 And if we confess our sins, he is faithful and just to forgive us our sins and to cleanse us from all our wickedness.10 And if we say that we do not sin, we make him a liar and his word is not with us.
1

I JOHN CHAPTER 2
My sons, I am writing these [things] to you so that you do not sin. Yet if someone should sin, we have a defense attorney with the Father, Yeshue-Meshikha, the Just [one]. 2 For he is the payment for our sins and not on behalf of ours only, but also on behalf of [the sins of] the whole world. 3 And by this we perceive that we know him, if we keep his commandments. 4 For he who says, “I know him,” and does not keep his commandments is a liar and the truth is not in him. 5 But he who keeps his word, in this [one] truly the love of Alaha is completed, for in this we know that we are in him. 6 He who says, “I am in him,” ought to conduct himself according to his own conduct. 7 My beloved [ones], I am not writing a new commandment to you, but an old commandment that you have had from the beginning. And the old commandment is the word that you have heard. 8 Again, I am writing a new commandment to you that is true in him and in you, because the darkness has passed and the true light has begun to be seen. 9 Therefore, he who says that he is in the light and hates his brother is in darkness until now. 10 But he who loves his brother remains in the light and there is no stumbling in him. 11 But he who hates his brother is in darkness and walks in darkness and does not know where he is going, because the darkness has blinded his eyes. 12 I am writing to you, sons, because your sins are forgiven on account of his name. 13 I am writing to you, fathers, because you have known him who is from the beginning. I am writing to you, young men, because you have overcome the Evil [one]. I have written to you, young boys, because you have known the Father. 14 I have written to you, fathers, because you have known him who was from the beginning. I have written to you, young men, because you are strong and the word of Alaha lives in you and you have overcome Page 252 of 276
1

the Evil [one]. 15 Do not love the world and not anything that is in it, for he who loves the world does not have the love of the Father. 16 For everything that is in the world, the desire of the body and the desire of the eyes and the boasting of the world, is not from the Father, but is from the world itself. 17 And the world and its desire pass away, but he who does the will of Alaha remains forever. 18 My sons, it is the last time and according to what you have heard, a false Meshikha will come. Even now there are many false Meshikha(s) and from this we know that it is the last time. 19 They have gone out from us, but they are not of us, for if they had been of us they would have stayed with us, but they went out from us that it would be known that they were not of us. 20 And you have an anointing from the holy [one] and are distinguishing between everyone. 21 I have not written to you because you do not know the truth, but because you do know it and because no falsehood is of the truth. 22 Who is a liar, except he who denies that Yeshue is Meshikha? This one is a false Meshikha. He who denies the Father also denies the Son. 23 And he who denies the Son, also does not believe in the Father. He who confesses the Son, also confesses the Father. 24 And what you have heard previously should remain with you, for if what you have heard previously remains with you, you will also remain in the Father and in the Son. 25 And this is the promise that he has promised to us, eternal life. 26 And these [things] I have written to you on account of those who seduce you. 27 And you also, if the anointing that you have received from him remains with you, will not need anyone to teach you. But as the anointing is from Alaha, it teaches you about everything and it is the truth and there is no falsehood in it. And as he has taught you, remain in him. 28 And now, my sons, remain in him, so that when he is revealed, we will not be ashamed before him, but we will have boldness at his coming. 29 If you know that he is just, know that also everyone who does a just [thing] is from him.

I JOHN CHAPTER 3
And see how great [is] the love of the Father toward us, because he has called us, even made us, sons. Because of this, the world does not know us, because it did not even know him. 2 My beloved [ones], now we are the sons of Alaha and it does not yet appear what we are going to be, but we know that when he is revealed, we will be in his likeness and we will see him as he is. 3 And everyone who has this hope concerning him purifies himself, as he is pure. 4 Now he who commits sin performs wickedness, for all sin is wickedness. 5 And you know him who was revealed to take away our sins and there was no sin in him. 6 And everyone who remains in him does not sin and everyone who sins has not seen him and does not know him. 7 My sons, no man should deceive you. He who does a just [thing] is just, as also Meshikha is just. 8 He who performs sin is from Satan, because from the beginning Satan was a sinner. And because of this, the Son of Alaha appeared to destroy the works of Satan. 9 Everyone who is born of Alaha does not practice sin, because his seed is in him and he is not able to sin, because he is born of Alaha.10 By this the sons of Alaha are separated from the sons of Satan. Everyone who does not do a just [thing] and does not love his brother is not from Alaha. 11 For this is the commandment that you have heard previously, that you should love one another, 12 not as Qayen, who was from the Evil [one] and killed his brother. And because of what did he kill him? Because his works were evil and those of his brother were just. 13 And do not wonder, my brothers, if the world hates you. 14 We know that we have moved from death to life in this, that we love our brothers. Page 253 of 276
1

He who does not love his brother remains in death. 15 For everyone who hates his brother is a murderer and you know that everyone who is a murderer is not able to remain in eternal life. 16 In this we know his love toward us, for he gave himself for us. And it is also right for us to give ourselves for our brothers. 17 And whoever has property of the world and sees his brother who has a need and withholds his compassion from him, how is the love of Alaha in him? 18 My sons, do not love one another with words and with the tongue, but with works and in truth. 19 And in this we recognize that we are from the truth and we will persuade our heart[s] before he comes. 20 Because if our heart condemns us, how much greater [is] Alaha than our heart? And he knows everything. 21 My beloved, if our heart does not condemn us, our faces are open before Alaha, 22 and everything that we ask, we will receive from him, because we keep his commandments and do pleasing [things] before him. 23 And this is his commandment, that we believe on the name of his Son, Yeshue-Meshikha, and love one another as he commanded us. 24 And he who keeps his commandments is kept by him and he lives in him. And by this we understand that he lives in us, from his Rukha that he gave to us.

I JOHN CHAPTER 4
My beloved [ones], do not believe all the spirits, but discern whether the spirits are from Alaha, because many false prophets have gone out in the world. 2 By this the Rukha d’Alaha is known, [for] every spirit that confesses that Yeshue-Meshikha has come in the flesh is from Alaha. 3 And every spirit that does not confess that Yeshue has come in the flesh is not from Alaha, but this [spirit] is from the false meshikha, about whom you have heard that he would come and is now already in the world. 4 Now you children, are of Alaha and you have overcome them, because greater [is] he who is in you than he who is in the world. 5 And these are from the world. Because of this, they speak from the world and the world hears them. 6 But we are from Alaha and he who knows Alaha hears us and he who is not from Alaha will not hear us. By this we know the Rukha of truth and the spirit of deception. 7 My beloved [ones], we should love one another, because love is from Alaha and everyone who loves is born of Alaha and knows Alaha, 8 because Alaha is love. And everyone who does not love, does not know Alaha. 9 By this the love of Alaha toward us is known, because Alaha sent his unique Son into the world that we would have life by him.10 In this is love, not that we loved Alaha, but [that] he loved us and sent his Son [as] a payment for our sins. 11 My beloved [ones], if Alaha so loved us, we also ought to love one another. 12 No one has ever seen Alaha, but if we love one another, Alaha remains in us and his love is completed in us. 13 And by this we know that we remain in him and he remains in us, because he has given us his Rukha. 14 And we have seen and testify that the Father sent his Son [as] the Redeemer for the world. 15 Everyone who confesses Yeshue, that he is the Son of Alaha, Alaha remains in him and he remains in Alaha. 16 And we believe and we know the love that Alaha has toward us, for Alaha is love, and everyone who remains in love remains in Alaha. 17 And in this his love is completed with us, so that we would have boldness in the day of judgment, because as he was, so are we in this world. 18 There is no fear in love, but complete love throws out fear, because fear is dangerous. Now he who fears is not completed in love. 19 Therefore, we should love Alaha, because he first loved us. 20 But if someone should say, “I love Alaha,” yet hates his brother, he is a liar. For he who does not love his brother, whom he has seen, how can he love Alaha, whom he has not seen? 21 And we have Page 254 of 276

received this commandment from him, that everyone who loves Alaha should also love his brother.

I JOHN CHAPTER 5
Everyone who believes that Yeshue is Meshikha is fathered of Alaha and everyone who loves the one fathering loves also the one who is fathered by him. 2 And by this we know that we love the children of Alaha, when we love Alaha and do his commandments. 3 For this is the love of Alaha, that we should keep his commandments. And his commandments are not difficult, 4 because everyone who is born of Alaha has overcome the world and this is the victory that overcomes the world, our faith. 5 For who is he who overcomes the world, but he who believes that Yeshue is the Son of Alaha? 6 This is he who came by way of water and blood, Yeshue-Meshikha. He was not by water alone, but by water and blood. 7 And the Rukha bears witness, for the Rukha is truth. 8 And there are three witnesses, Rukha and water and blood and the three of them are as one. 9 If we receive the testimony of men, how much more the testimony of Alaha that is greater? And this is the testimony of Alaha that he testified concerning his Son. 10 Whoever believes in the Son of Alaha has this testimony in himself. Everyone who does not believe has made Alaha a liar, in that he did not believe the testimony that Alaha testified concerning his Son. 11 And this is the testimony, that Alaha has given us eternal life and the life is in his Son. 12 Everyone who holds fast to the Son also holds fast to life. And everyone who does not hold fast to the Son of Alaha does not have life. 13 These [things] I have written to you, those who believe in the name of the Son of Alaha, that you would know that you have eternal life. 14 And we have this confidence toward him, for everything that we ask of him according to his will, he hears us. 15 And if we are persuaded that he hears us concerning what we request of him, we are confident that we have already received our requests that we requested of him. 16 If someone should see his brother when he sins a sin that is not guilty of death, he should ask and life will be given to those who do not sin as to death. For there is a sin of death, [but] I do not say that anyone should pray for this [sin]. 17 For all wickedness is sin and there is a sin that is not of death. 18 And we know that everyone who is born of Alaha does not sin, for he who is born of Alaha guards himself and the Evil [one] does not come near him. 19 We know that we are of Alaha and all the world is seated in wickedness. 20 And we know that the Son of Alaha has come and has given us knowledge that we would know the true [one] and be in him, in the true [one], in his Son, Yeshue-Meshikha. This is the true Alaha and eternal life. 21 My sons, keep yourselves from idolatry.

II JOHN
CHAPTER 1
The elder, to the chosen lady and to her children, those whom I love in truth, and not I alone, but all those who know the truth, 2 because of the truth that remains in us and is with us forever: 3 Grace be with us and mercy and peace from Alaha the Father and from our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, the Son of the Father, in truth and in love. 4 I rejoiced greatly that I found some of your children walking in truth, as we received commandment from the Father. 5 And now I persuade you, [my] lady, not as though I am writing a new commandment to you, but that which we had from the beginning, that we love one another. 6 And this is love, that we should walk according to his commandments. This is the commandment as you heard from the beginning that you should walk in it. 7 For many deceivers have gone out into the world, those who do not confess that Yeshue-Meshikha has come in the flesh. This [one] is a deceiver and against Meshikha. 8 Be watchful of yourselves, so that you do not lose that for which you worked, but rather [that] you may be paid the full reward. 9 Everyone who transgresses and does not remain in the teaching of Meshikha does not have Alaha. He who remains in his teaching, this [one] has both the Father and the Son.10 If anyone comes to you and does not bring this teaching, do not receive him in the house and do not say to him, “Joy to you,” 11 for he who says to him, “Joy to you,” is sharing in his evil works. 12 Since I have many [things] to write to you, I do not want [to write] with paper and ink, but I am hoping to come to you and to speak mouth to mouth, that our joy may be complete. 13 The children of your sister, a chosen [one], greet you. Grace [be] with you. Amen.

III JOHN
CHAPTER 1
The elder, to Gaius, a beloved [one], whom I love in truth: 2 Our beloved [one], in everything I pray for you that you would prosper and would be healthy, even as your life prospers. 3 For I rejoiced greatly when the brothers came and testified about your integrity, even as you walk in integrity. 4 For I have no greater joy than this, than to hear that my children walk in integrity. 5 Our beloved [one], you are doing in faith what you perform toward the brothers and especially those who are strangers, 6 who have given testimony concerning your love before all the church, to whom you are doing well, because you supply them according to what is proper to Alaha. 7 For they went out on behalf of his name, taking nothing from the Gentiles. 8 Therefore, we ought to receive those who are like these that we may be helpers for the truth. 9 I wanted to write to the church, but he who loves to be first among them, Diotrephes, did not receive us.10 Because of this, if he comes, I will remember his works that he did, that he tore us down with evil words. And when these [things] did not satisfy him, he did not receive the brothers and he hindered and threw out of the church those who were receiving [them]. 11 Our beloved [one], do not imitate evil, but good. He who does good is of Alaha. He who does evil has not seen Alaha. 12 About Demetrius, there is a testimony from everyone and from the church and from the truth. And also we bear [him] testimony and you know that our testimony is true. 13 I have many [things] to write to you, but I do not want to write to you with ink and pen, 14 but I am hoping to see you soon and we will speak mouth to mouth. 15 Peace be with you. The friends greet you. Greet the friends, everyone by his name.

JUDE
CHAPTER 1
Yehudah, a servant of Yeshue-Meshikha, and the brother of Yaquv, to the called nations, who are loved by Alaha, the Father, and are kept in Yeshue-Meshikha: 2 Mercy and peace and love be multiplied to you. 3 My beloved [ones], while I am being completely diligent to write to you about our own salvation that is common, there is a need for me to write to you, persuading you to contend in the struggle on behalf of the faith that was once delivered to the holy [ones]. 4 For men have gained entrance, who from the beginning were previously described in this condemnation, wicked men who turn the grace of our Alaha to uncleanness and deny him who is the only Lord Alaha and our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha. 5 And I want to remind you, although you all know [it], that Alaha, having rescued the people from Egypt at one time, at a second [time] destroyed those who did not believe. 6 And the angels who did not keep their first estate, but left their own dwelling, he has reserved in chains, unknown, under darkness, for the judgment of the great day. 7 [It is] as Sedum and Amura and the cities of the surrounding area, which committed fornication in the same manner as these and followed other flesh, [which] are placed under a demonstration of fire that is eternal, being condemned to judgment. 8 In the same manner also, these who are fantasizing in dreams are indeed polluting the flesh and rejecting lordship and blaspheming against the glory. 9 Now Mikael, the archangel, who, when he was debating with the Accuser, spoke about the body of Mushe, did not dare to bring on him the judgment of blasphemy, but said, “Marya will rebuke you.”10 And these [men] are blaspheming about those [things] that they do not know. And in those [things] that they are familiar with naturally as dumb animals, in these they are corrupted. 11 Woe to them, for they have gone in the way of Qayen, and after the error of Belam they have burned with passion for reward, and by the stubbornness of Qurakh they are destroyed. 12 They are those who in their idleness feast in excess, as they are defiled, feeding themselves without fear. [They are] clouds without rain that are moved by the winds, trees whose produce has ceased, that are without fruit, that die a second time and are pulled up from their roots, 13 raging waves of the sea that by way of their foam demonstrate their shame, wandering stars, for which the blackness of darkness is reserved forever. 14 And Khenuk, who was the seventh from Adom, also prophesied of these, saying, “Behold, Marya will come with multitudes of holy [ones] 15 to execute judgment on all and to reprove all people because of all these works that they have impiously practiced and because of all the hardened words that the impious sinners have spoken.” 16 These are they who murmur and complain about all matters, walking according to their own desires. And their mouth speaks shocking [things] and they flatter the appearances of people on account of profits. 17 But you, my beloved [ones], remember the words that were spoken before by the apostles of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha, 18 because they told you that at the end of the times there would be those who were mocking, who would follow wickedness according to their own desires. 19 They are those who are marked out, natural [men] who do not have the Rukha. 20 But you, my beloved [ones], be built up anew in your holy faith by the Rukha, sanctified while [you] pray. 21 And we should keep ourselves in the love of Alaha, looking for the mercy of our Lord Yeshue-Meshikha for our life that is eternal. 22 And indeed, snatch some of them out of the fire. 23 And when they repent, have compassion on them with fear, hating even the garment that is spotted by the flesh. 24 Now Page 258 of 276
1

to him who is able to keep us faultless and without spot and to establish [us] without blemish, 25 the only Alaha, our Redeemer, by way of Yeshue-Meshikha our Lord, in the presence of his glory with joy, to him [be] glory and dominion and honor and majesty, both now and in all ages. Amen.

REVELATION
CHAPTER 1
The revelation of Yeshue-Meshikha that Alaha gave to him to show to his servants what is right to happen soon. And he made [this] known when he sent by way of his angel to his servant Yukhanan, 2 who gave witness to the word of Alaha and to the witness of Yeshue-Meshikha, all that he saw. 3 Blessed [be] he who reads and those who hear the words of this prophecy and keep those [things] that are written in it, for the time has drawn near. 4 Yukhanan, to the seven churches that [are] in Asia: Grace [be] to you and peace from him who is and was and comes and from the seven spirits that are before his throne 5 and from Yeshue-Meshikha, the faithful witness, the firstborn of the dead and the ruler of the kings of the earth, who loved us and released us from our sins by his blood 6 and made us a priestly kingdom to Alaha, even his Father. To him [be] glory and dominion, forever and ever. Amen. 7 Behold, he comes with clouds and all eyes will see him, even those who pierced him, and all the tribes of the earth will mourn concerning him. Yes and amen. 8 “I am Aleph and Tau,” says Marya Alaha, “He who is and was and comes, who is the Almighty.” 9 I, Yukhanan, your brother and companion with you in the trial and in the endurance that is in Yeshue, was on the island that is called Patmos because of the word of Alaha and because of the witness of Yeshue-Meshikha.10 And I was [seeing] spiritually on the first day of the week and I heard from behind me a loud voice as a trumpet 11 that said, “These [things] that you see, write in a book and send to the seven churches, to Ephesus and to Smyrna and to Pergamos and to Thyatira and to Sardis and to Philadelphia and to Laodicea.” 12 And I turned to know the voice that spoke with me and when I turned, I saw seven lampstands of gold. 13 And in the middle of the lampstands [was one] like the form of a man clothed with an ephod and his breasts girded with a girdle of gold. 14 Now his head and his hair [were] white like wool and like snow, and his eyes [were] like a flame of fire 15 and his feet [were] in the form of Lebanese brass that is burned in a furnace and his voice [was] like the sound of many waters. 16 And he had in his right hand seven stars and a sharp spear came out of his mouth and his appearance [was] like the sun showing its power. 17 And when I saw him, I fell at his feet as [one] dead. And he laid his right hand on me, saying, “Fear not. I am the first and the last 18 and he who is alive and was dead. And behold, I am alive forever and ever. Amen. And I have the key of death and of Sheol. 19 Therefore, write what you saw and these [things] that are and are going to happen after these, 20 the mystery of the seven stars that you saw in my right [hand] and the seven lampstands. The seven stars are the angels of the seven churches and the seven lampstands of gold that you saw are the seven churches.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 2
“And to the angel of the church of Ephesus, write, “So says he who holds the seven stars in his hand, he who walks among the lampstands of gold. 2 I know your works and your labor and your endurance and that you are not able to bear evil [ones]. And you have tested those Page 260 of 276
1

who say about themselves that they are apostles and are not and you have found them [to be] liars. 3 And you have endurance and you bear a burden because of my name and you have not become weary. 4 But I have [something] against you, because you have left your former love. 5 Remember from where you came and do the former works, but if not, I will come to you and I will remove your lampstand, unless you repent. 6 But this you have, that you hate the works of the Nicolaitans, those that I hate.” 7 He who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches. And to him who overcomes, I will allow [him] to eat of the tree of life which is in the paradise of Alaha.” 8 “And to the angel of the church of Smyrna, write, “So says the first and the last, he who was dead and lives. 9 I know your trial and your poverty (but you are rich) and the reproach from those who say of themselves [that they are] Yehudaye when they are not Yehudaye, but the assembly of Satan.10 Do not be afraid of anything, of those [things] that you are going to suffer. Behold, the Accuser is going to throw some of you into the detention hall, so that you may be tried and you will have torment [for] ten days. Be faithful [ones] until death and I will give to you the crown of life.” 11 He who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches. “He who overcomes will not be hurt by the second death.”“ 12 “And to the angel that is in the church of Pergamos, write, “So says he who has the sharp sword of two edges. 13 I know where you live, the place of the throne of Satan. And you hold fast to my name and you have not denied my faith, even in the days [when] you were watched and my faithful witness (because every witness of mine is faithful) was killed among you. 14 But I have a few [things] against you. You have there those who hold the doctrine of Belam, who taught Balaq to set a stumbling stone before the sons of Israyel to eat the sacrifices of idols and to commit fornication. 15 So also you have those who adhere in the same manner to the doctrine of the Nicolaitans. 16 Repent therefore. And if not, I will come to you immediately and I will wage war with them with the sword of my mouth.” 17 And he who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches. “To him who overcomes, I will give from the manna that is hidden and I will give to him a white pebble and on the pebble a new name written that no man knows, except him who receives.”“ 18 “And to the angel that is in the church that is in Thyatira, write, “So says the Son of Alaha, he who has eye[s] like a flame of fire and his feet like Lebanese brass. 19 I know your works and your love and your faith and your service and your endurance and your last works are greater than the former [ones]. 20 But I have much against you, because you allowed your wife, Izavel, who says concerning herself that she is a prophetess and teaches and deceives my servants, to commit fornication and to eat sacrifices of idols. 21 And I gave her a time for repentance and she does not desire to repent of her fornication. 22 Behold, I will cast her into a coffin and those who commit adultery with her into great torment, unless they repent of their works. 23 And I will kill her sons with death and all the churches will know that I am searching the emotions and the heart and I will give to all of you according to your works.” 24 I say to you, to the rest who are in Thyatira, all those who do not have this teaching, those who have not known the deep [things] of Satan (as they say), “I will not place another burden on you. 25 Therefore, that which you have, hold fast until I come. 26 And he who overcomes and keeps my works, to him I will give authority over the nations 27 To rule them with a rod of iron and as vessels of a potter, they will be broken. For thus I received from my Father. 28 And I will give him the star of the morning.” 29 He who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 3

Page 261 of 276

“And to the angel that is in the church of Sardis, write, “So says he who has the seven spirits of Alaha and the seven stars. I know your works and the name that you have and that you live and that you are dead. 2 And be watchful and establish the rest of those who are going to die, for I have not found that your works are complete before Alaha. 3 Remember how you heard and you received. Beware and repent. And if you do not watch, I will come to you as a thief and you will not know [in] what hour [he] comes to you. 4 But I have a few names in Sardis, those who have not defiled their clothes and walk before me in white and are worthy. 5 He who overcomes will be so dressed with white clothes and I will not blot out his name from the scroll of life and I will confess his name before my Father and before his angels.” 6 He who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches.” 7 “And to the angel of the church of Philadelphia, write, “So says the holy [one], the true [one], he who has the keys of Dawid, the one who opens and no one shuts and [who] shuts and no one opens. 8 I know your works and behold, I have set before you an open door that no one is able to shut, because you have little strength and you have kept my word and you have not denied my name. 9 And behold, I will give those from the assembly of Satan, who say concerning themselves that they are Yehudaye and they are not, but they lie, behold, I will make them to come and to worship before your feet and to know that I have loved you.10 Because you have kept the word of my patience, I will keep you from the trial that is going to come on all the earth to try all the inhabitants of the earth. 11 I am coming quickly. Hold fast what you have, so that no man will take your crown. 12 And I will make him who overcomes a pillar in the temple of Alaha and he will not go outside again and I will write on him the name of my Alaha and the name of the new city, Urishlem, that comes down from my Alaha, and my own new name.” 13 And he who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches.” 14 “And to the angel of the church of Laodicea, write, “So says the true [one], the faithful and true witness and the first[fruit] of the creation of Alaha. 15 I know your works. You are neither cold nor hot. You ought to be either cold or hot. 16 And you are lukewarm and neither cold nor hot. I am going to vomit you from my mouth, 17 because you have said that you are rich, “and I have grown rich and I am not in need of anything,” and you do not know that you are weak and miserable and poor and naked. 18 I counsel you to buy gold from me that is tried by fire, so that you may become rich, and white garments to clothe yourself, so that the shame of your nakedness should not be revealed. And apply eye salve to the eyelids, so that you may see. 19 I reprove and I correct those whom I love. Be zealous, therefore, and repent. 20 Behold, I stand at the door and knock. If anyone hears my voice and will open the door, I will enter and I will eat supper with him and he with me. 21 And to him that overcomes, I will allow [him] to sit with me on my throne, even as I overcame and sat with my Father on his throne.” 22 He who has ears should hear what the Rukha says to the churches.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 4
After these [things], I looked and behold, [there was] an open door in heaven. And the voice that I heard [was] like a trumpet speaking with me saying, “Come up here and I will show you what must happen after these [things].” 2 And immediately I was [seeing] spiritually. And behold, a throne was placed in heaven and [someone] was sitting on the throne. 3 And he who was sitting [was] like the appearance of a stone of jasper and of sardius, and the rainbow around Page 262 of 276
1

the throne [was] like the appearance of emeralds. 4 And around the throne [were] twenty-four thrones. And on the thrones, twenty-four elders were sitting, clothed in white garments. And on their heads [were] crowns of gold. 5 And thunderings and lightning bolts and shouts came out from the thrones and seven burning lights [were] before the throne that are the seven spirits of Alaha. 6 And before the throne [was] a sea of glass like crystal. And between the throne and around the throne [were] four living creatures full of eyes in front and behind. 7 The first living creature was like a lion and the second living creature [was] like a calf and the third living creature had a face as a man and the fourth living creature [was] like an eagle that was flying. 8 Each one of the four living creatures stood and had from its claws and upward, six wings full of eyes around [it] and from within. And they have no rest, day or night, saying, “Holy, holy, holy, Marya Alaha Almighty, he who was and is and comes.” 9 And when the four living creatures give glory and honor and thanksgiving to him who sits on the throne and to him who truly lives forever and ever,10 the twenty-four elders would fall down before him who sits on the throne and worship him who truly lives forever and ever. And they would throw their crowns before the throne, saying, 11 “Worthy is our Lord and our Alaha to receive glory and honor and power, because you created all, and by way of your will, they came to be and were created.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 5
And I saw on the right hand of him who sat on the throne a book inscribed from within and from without and sealed with seven seals. 2 And I saw another strong angel who proclaimed with a loud voice, “Who is worthy to open the book and to loosen its seals?” 3 And there was no one who was able, in heaven or on earth or under the earth, to open the book and to loosen its seals and to see it. 4 And I was weeping very much, because there was no one who was found who was worthy to open the book and to loosen its seals. 5 And one of the elders said to me, “Do not weep. Behold, the lion from the tribe of Yehudah, the root of Dawid, has conquered. He will open the book and its seals.” 6 And I saw in the middle of the throne and of the four living creatures and of the elders a lamb that stood as if it was being sacrificed. And it had seven horns and seven eyes that are the seven spirits of Alaha that are sent to all the earth. 7 And he came and took the book from the hand of him who sat on the throne. 8 And when he took the book, the four living creatures and the twenty-four elders fell down before the lamb, each one of them having a harp and a bowl of gold filled with perfumes, which are the prayers of the holy [ones], 9 who were praising a new praise-hymn and saying, “You are worthy to take the book and to loosen its seals, because you were sacrificed and you bought us with your blood for Alaha from all the tribes and nations and peoples.10 And you made them a kingdom for our Alaha and priests and kings and they will reign on the earth.” 11 And I saw and I heard [a sound] like the voice of many angels around the throne and of the living creatures and of the elders. And their number was a multitude of multitudes and a thousand of thousands. 12 And they were saying with a loud voice, “Worthy is the sacrificed Lamb to receive power and wealth and wisdom and strength and honor and glory and blessing 13 and the whole creation that is in heaven and on the earth and under the earth and is in the sea and all that is in them.” And I heard them saying to him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb, “Blessing and honor and praise and dominion, forever and ever.” 14 And the four living creatures were saying, “Amen.” And the elders fell down and worshipped.

REVELATION CHAPTER 6
And I saw when the Lamb opened one of the seven seals and I heard one of the four living creatures that spoke as the sound of thunderings, “Come and see.” 2 And I heard and I saw and behold, [there was] a white horse and he who sat on it had an archery bow and a crown was given to him and he went out a conqueror, both conquering and to conquer. 3 And when he opened the second seal, I heard the second living creature, saying, “Come.” 4 And a red horse went out and it was given to him who sat on it to take peace from the earth that they would slaughter one another and there was given to him a large sword. 5 And when the third seal was opened, I heard the third living creature, saying, “Come.” And behold, [there was] a black horse and he who sat on it had a balance in his hand. 6 And I heard a voice from among the living creatures, saying, “A measure of wheat for a denarius and three measures of barley for a denarius and do not hurt the wine and the oil.” 7 And when he opened the fourth seal, I heard the voice of the living creature, saying, “Come.” 8 And I saw a pale horse and the name of him who sat on it [was] Death and Sheol followed him. And authority was given to him over one-fourth of the earth to kill by the sword and by famine and by death and by the wild animal of the earth. 9 And when he opened the fifth seal, I saw under the altar the people that were killed because of the word of Alaha and because of the testimony of Yeshue that they had.10 And they cried with a loud voice and said, “How long, Marya, holy and true, do you not judge and require our blood of the inhabitants of the earth?” 11 And there was given to each one of them a white robe and it was said that they should rest for a short period of time until it should be completed, even their fellows and their brothers who were going to be killed, as also they [had been]. 12 And I saw when he opened the sixth seal and there was a great earthquake. And the sun was as sackcloth of black hair and the whole moon was as blood. 13 And the stars of heaven fell on the earth, as a fig tree that casts its unripe figs when it is shaken by a powerful wind. 14 And heaven was parted, as scrolls that are rolled out, and every mountain and every island were moved out of their place[s]. 15 And the kings of the earth and the great and the rulers of thousands and the rich and the strong [ones] and all the servants and the free men hid themselves in caves and in the rocks of the mountains. 16 And they were saying to the mountains and the rocks: Fall on us and hide us from the face of the Lamb, 17 because the great day of their anger has come and who is able to stand?
1

REVELATION CHAPTER 7
And after this, I saw four angels standing on the four corners of the earth and holding back the four winds, so that the wind would not blow on the earth, nor on the sea, nor on any tree. 2 And I saw another angel who came up from the rising of the sun and he had the seal of the living Alaha. And he cried out with a loud voice to the four angels to whom it was given to hurt the earth and the sea. 3 And he said, “Do not hurt the earth nor the sea, not even the trees, until we seal the servants of Alaha on their foreheads.” 4 And I heard the number of the sealed [ones], one hundred and forty-four thousand from all the tribes of Israyel, 5 from the tribe of Yehudah, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Ruveil, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Gad, twelve Page 264 of 276
1

thousand, 6 from the tribe of Ashir, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Naphtali, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Menashe, twelve thousand, 7 from the tribe of Shimon, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Isakar, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Lewi, twelve thousand, 8 from the tribe of Zebulun, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Yauseph, twelve thousand, from the tribe of Benyamin, twelve thousand sealed [ones]. 9 And afterwards, I saw a large crowd, which no one was able to number, from every nation and tribe and peoples and languages, that stood before the throne and before the Lamb and were clothed with white robes and [with] palm branches in their hands.10 And they were crying out with a loud voice and saying, “Deliverance to our Alaha and to him who sits on the throne and to the Lamb.” 11 And all the angels were standing around the throne and the elders and the four living creatures. And they fell down before the throne on their faces, 12 saying, “Amen. Glory and blessing and wisdom and thanks giving and honor and power and strength [be] to our Alaha, forever and ever. Amen.” 13 And one of the elders answered and said to me, “Who are those who are clothed with white robes and from where did they come?” 14 And I said to him, “My lord, you know.” And he said to me, “They are those who came from great torment and have washed their robes and whitened them in the blood of the Lamb. 15 Because of this, they are before the throne of Alaha and serve him day and night in his temple. And he who sits on the throne will dwell with them. 16 They will not hunger and not thirst and the sun will not fall on them and not any heat, 17 because the Lamb who is in the middle of the throne will feed them and will guide them to life and to the fountains of water and will wipe away all the tears from their eyes.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 8
And when he opened the seventh seal, there was silence in heaven for about half an hour. And I saw seven angels who were standing before Alaha. Seven trumpets were given to them. 3 And another angel came and stood by the altar and he had a censer of gold. And much incense was given to him to offer with the prayers of all the holy [ones] on the altar that is before the throne. 4 And the smoke of the incense went up with the prayers of the holy [ones] from the hand of the angel before Alaha. 5 And the angel took the censer and filled it from the fire on the altar and threw [it] on the earth and there were thunderings and shouts and lightning bolts and an earthquake. 6 And the seven angels who [had] the seven trumpets on them prepared themselves to sound. 7 And that first [angel] sounded and there was hail and fire mingled with water and [these] were thrown on the earth. And a third of the earth was burned and a third of the trees were burned and all the grass of the earth was burned. 8 And the second [angel] sounded and it was as a huge mountain that was burning. It fell into the sea and a third of the sea became blood. 9 And a third of all the created [ones] that are in the sea that have life died and a third of the ship[s] were destroyed.10 And the third [angel] sounded and a large star fell from heaven that was burning as a flame and it fell on a third of the rivers and on the fountains of waters. 11 And the name of the star was called Wormwood and a third of the waters became as wormwood and a great number of men died, because the waters were made bitter. 12 And the fourth [angel] sounded and a third of the sun was struck and a third of the moon and a third of the stars and a third of them became dark. And the day did not show [for] a third part of it and the night likewise. 13 And I heard one eagle flying in heaven that said, “Woe, woe, woe, to the inhabitants of the earth, because of the sound of the trumpets of the three angels that are going to sound!”

REVELATION CHAPTER 9
And the fifth [angel] sounded and I saw a star that fell from heaven on the earth and the key of the pits of the abyss was given to him. 2 And smoke went up from the pits, as the smoke of a large furnace that was heated up. And the sun was darkened and the air [also] from the smoke of the pits. 3 And from the smoke, locusts went out on the earth and the authority that belongs to the scorpions of the earth was given to them. 4 And it was told to them that they should not harm the grass of the earth or any herb, not even the trees, but only the men who did not have the seal of Alaha on their foreheads. 5 And it was given to them that they should not kill them, but [that] they should be tormented [for] five months. And their torment [was] like the torment of a scorpion when it falls on a man. 6 And in those days, men will seek death and will not find it. And they will earnestly desire to die and death will flee from them. 7 And the form of the locusts [was] like horses that are prepared for battle. And on their heads [it was] like a crown with the form of gold and their faces [were] like the face of a man. 8 And they had hair like the hair of women and their teeth [were] like [those] of lions. 9 And they had a breastplate like a breastplate of iron and the sound of their wings [was] like the sound of the chariots of many horses that are running to battle.10 And they had tails like a scorpion and stings in their tails and their authority [was] to hurt men [for] five months. 11 And there was a king over them, the angel of the abyss, whose name in Evraith [is] Abaddon, and in Aramaic, his name is “Breaker.” 12 One woe is past. Behold, there are still two woe[s]. 13 After these [things], the sixth angel sounded and I heard one voice from the four horns of the altar of gold that was before Alaha 14 that said to the sixth angel that had the trumpet, “Release the four angels that are bound at the great river Pherath.” 15 And the four angels were released, who were prepared for an hour and for a day and for a month and for a year to kill a third of mankind. 16 And the number of the hosts of the cavalry was two thousand thousands. I heard their number. 17 And so I saw the horses in the vision and those sitting on them had a breastplate of fire and chalcedony and sulfur. And the heads of the horses [were] like the heads of lions and from their mouth[s] came out fire and sulfur and smoke. 18 And by these three plagues, a third of mankind was killed, even by the fire and by the sulfur and by the smoke that came out of their mouth[s], 19 because the power of the horses [was] in their mouth[s] and also in their tails. 20 And the rest of the men who were not killed by these plagues did not repent of the work of their hands that they should not worship demons and images of gold and of silver and of brass and of wood and of stone, those that are not able to see, nor to hear or to walk. 21 And they did not repent of their murders or of their sorceries or of their fornication.

REVELATION CHAPTER 10
And I saw another angel who came down from heaven and was clothed with a cloud and a rainbow of heaven [was] on his head and his appearance [was] like the sun and his legs [were] like pillars of fire. 2 And he had in his hand a little open book and he placed his right foot Page 266 of 276
1

on the sea and the left on the land. 3 And he cried out with a loud voice as a roaring lion. And when he had cried out, the seven thunders spoke with their voices. 4 And when the seven thunders spoke, I was preparing to write. And I heard a voice from heaven of the seven, saying, “Seal up what the seven thunders have said and do not write it.” 5 And the angel that I saw standing on the sea and on the dry land, who lifted his hand to heaven, 6 even he swore by him who lives forever and ever, he who created the heaven and that which is in it and the earth and that which is in it, that there should not be any more time. 7 But in the days of the seventh angel, when he is about to sound, the mystery of Alaha will be completed that he announced to his servants, the prophets. 8 And I heard a voice from heaven again speaking with me and saying, “Go [and] take the little book that is in the hand of the angel who stands on the land and on the sea.” 9 And I came near to the angel, telling him to give the little book to me. And he said to me, “Take and eat it and it will be bitter to your stomach, but in your mouth it will be like honey.”10 And I took the little book from the hand of the angel and I ate it. And it was in my mouth sweet as honey. And when I ate it, my stomach became bitter. 11 And he said to me, “You must prophesy another time about the nations and peoples and languages and many kings.”

REVELATION CHAPTER 11
And a reed was given to me like a rod and the angel stood and said, “Rise up and measure the temple of Alaha and the altar and those who worship in it, 2 and leave out the court within the temple and do not measure it, because it is given to the Gentiles and they will trample down the holy city [for] forty-two months. 3 And I will give my two witnesses [authority] to prophesy, one thousand, two hundred and sixty days, being clothed with sackcloth. 4 These are two olive [trees] and two lampstands who stand before the Lord of the whole earth. 5 And [if] one seeks to harm them, fire comes out of their mouth[s] and consumes their enemies. And [if] anyone wishes to harm them, so they must be killed. 6 And these have authority to shut heaven, so that rain will not fall in the days of their prophecy. And they have authority to turn the waters to blood and to strike the earth with all plagues, as much as they desire. 7 And when they have completed their testimony, the creature who came up from the sea will wage war with them and will conquer them and will kill them. 8 And their corpses [will be] on the streets of the great city that is spiritually called Sedum and Egypt, where their Lord was crucified. 9 And some of the peoples and tribes and languages and nations see their corpses [for] three and a half days and they will not allow their corpses to be placed in graves.10 And the inhabitants of the earth will rejoice over them and will be glad and they will send gifts to one another, because of the two prophets who tormented the inhabitants of the earth.” 11 And after three and a half days, the living Rukha from Alaha entered into them and they rose up on their feet and the Rukha of life fell on them and great fear was on those who saw them. 12 And they heard a loud voice from heaven that said to them, “Come up here.” And they went up to heaven in a cloud and their enemies gazed at them. 13 And in that hour there was a huge earthquake and one-tenth of the city fell and they were killed in the earthquake. The names of the men [were] seven thousand and the remainder were in fear and gave praise to Alaha who is in heaven. 14 Behold, two woe[s] have come and behold, the third woe comes quickly. 15 And the seventh angel sounded and there were loud voices in heaven, saying, “The kingdom of the age has become [the kingdom] of our Alaha and of his Meshikha and he reigns forever and ever.” 16 And the twenty-four elders, who were Page 267 of 276
1

sitting before Alaha on their thrones, fell on their faces and worshipped Alaha, 17 saying, “We praise you, Marya Alaha Almighty, who is and was, because you have taken your great power and you have reigned. 18 And the nations were angry, yet your anger has come and the time of the dead that they should be judged. And you will give a reward to your servants, the prophets, and to the holy [ones] and to those who reverence your name, the small with the great. And you will corrupt those who corrupted the earth. 19 And the temple was opened in heaven and the ark of his covenant was seen in the temple. And there were lightning bolts and thunderings and shouts and an earthquake and large hail.

REVELATION CHAPTER 12
And a great sign was seen in heaven, a woman clothed with the sun and the moon under her feet and a crown of twelve stars on her head, 2 and [she was] pregnant and crying and laboring in childbirth, also being in pain to give birth. 3 And another sign was seen in heaven, and behold, [I saw] a great dragon of fire that had seven heads and ten horns and seven crowns on its heads. 4 And its tail drew away a third of the stars that were in heaven and threw them on the earth. And the dragon was standing before the woman who was about to give birth, so that when she gave birth, he would devour her son. 5 And she gave birth to a male child who was going to rule all the nations with a rod of iron and her son was caught up to Alaha and to his throne. 6 And the woman fled to the wilderness, where she had a place that was prepared there by Alaha, so that they would nourish her [for] one thousand, two hundred and sixty days. 7 And there was a war in heaven and Mikael and his angels were warring with the dragon, and the dragon and his angels warred. 8 And they did not prevail and no place was found for them in heaven. 9 And the great dragon was thrown out, that chief serpent, who is called the Accuser and Satan, who deceived the whole earth. And he was thrown out on the earth and his angels were thrown out with him.10 And I heard a loud voice from heaven saying, “Behold, there is deliverance and power and the kingdom of our Alaha, because the Despiser of our brothers is thrown out, who despised them, night and day, before our Alaha. 11 And they overcame by the blood of the Lamb and by way of the word of his testimony and they did not love their own lives, until death. 12 Because of this, rejoice, [oh] heaven and those who live in them! Woe to the earth and to the sea, because the Accuser, who has great fury, has come down to them, knowing he has a short time.” 13 And when the dragon saw that he was thrown on the earth, he persecuted the woman who gave birth to the male child. 14 And two wings of a large eagle were given to the woman, so that she would fly to the wilderness to her place to be fed there [for] a time, times, and half of a time, from before the face of the serpent. 15 And the serpent threw water as a river out of his mouth after the woman, so that the water would cause her to be carried away. 16 And the earth helped the woman and the earth opened its mouth and swallowed the river that the dragon threw out of its mouth. 17 And the dragon was furious about the woman and he went to wage war with the rest of her seed, those who keep the commandments of Alaha and have the testimony of Yeshue.

REVELATION CHAPTER 13
Page 268 of 276

And I stood on the sand of the sea. And I saw a creature coming up from the sea that had ten horns and seven heads, and on his horns, ten crown headbands, and on his head, the name of blasphemy. 2 And the creature that I saw was like a leopard and his feet [were] like those of a bear and his mouth [was] like that of lions. And the dragon gave him his power and his throne and great authority. 3 And one of his heads [was] as wounded to death and the deadly wound was healed and the whole world was amazed at the creature. 4 And they worshipped the dragon who gave authority to the creature and they worshipped the creature, saying, “Who is like this creature and who is able to make war with him?” 5 And a mouth was given to him for speaking great [things] and blasphemy and authority was given to him to act [for] forty-two months. 6 And he opened his mouth to blaspheme in the presence of Alaha, to blaspheme the name and the dwelling of those who dwell in heaven. 7 And it was given to him to wage war with the holy [ones] and to conquer them and authority was given to him over all the tribes and peoples and languages and nations. 8 And all the inhabitants of the earth will worship him, those who are not written in the book of life of the slain Lamb before the foundations of the world. 9 He who has ears should hear.10 He who leads into captivity will go into captivity and he who kills with the sword will be killed with the sword. Here is the faith and the patience of the holy [ones]. 11 And I saw another creature coming up from the earth and he had two horns like a lamb and he was speaking as the dragon. 12 And he will exercise all the authority of the first creature before him and he will cause the earth and those who live in it to worship the first creature, whose deadly wound was healed. 13 And he will do great signs, such as, he will make fire to come down from heaven on the earth before men. 14 And he will seduce those who are living on the earth by way of the signs that are given to him to do in the presence of the creature, telling those who are living on the earth to make an image for the creature who had the wound of the sword and lived. 15 And it was given to him to give breath to the image of the creature and to cause all who would not worship the image of the creature to be killed, 16 and to cause all, small and great, rich and poor, lords and servants, to be given a mark on their right hands or on their foreheads, 17 so that no one could buy or sell again, except those who had the mark of the name of the creature or the number of his name. 18 Here is wisdom. And he who has understanding should count the number of the creature, for it is the number of a man, six hundred and sixty-six.

REVELATION CHAPTER 14
And I saw, and behold, a lamb was standing on the mountain of Tsehyun and with him [were] one hundred and forty-four thousand who had his name and the name of his Father written on their foreheads. 2 And I heard a sound from heaven as the sound of many waters and as the sound of great thunder. The sound that I heard [was] as a harpist who strikes on his harps. 3 And they were praising as a new praise song before the throne and before the four living creatures and before the elders. And no one was able to learn the praise song, except the one hundred and forty-four thousand purchased [ones] from the earth. 4 These are they who have not defiled themselves with women, for they are virgins, they who followed the Lamb everywhere he would go. These were purchased from mankind, the first[fruit] to Alaha and to the Lamb, 5 in whose mouth falsehood was not found, for they are without blemish. 6 And I saw another angel flying in the middle of heaven and he had the everlasting gospel with him to preach to the Page 269 of 276
1

inhabitants of the earth and to all the people and nations and tribes and language[s], 7 saying with a loud voice, “Fear Alaha and give him glory, because the hour of his judgment has come, and worship him who made heaven and earth and the sea and the fountains of waters.” 8 And another, a second [angel], followed him and said, “Babel, the great, has fallen, has fallen, she who gave all the nations to drink of the fury of her fornication.” 9 And another, a third angel, followed them, saying with a loud voice, “He who worshipped the creature and his image and took his mark on his forehead10 will also drink of the wine of the fury of Marya that is poured without mixture into the cup of his anger. And he will be tormented with fire and with sulfur before the holy angels and before the Lamb 11 and the smoke of their torment will rise forever and ever. And they will not have relief, day or night, those who were worshipping the creature and his image and who took the mark of his name.” 12 Here is the patience of the holy [ones], who keep the commandments of Alaha and the faith of Yeshue. 13 And I heard a voice from heaven saying, “Write. Blessed [are] the dead who depart in our Lord from now on. “Yes,” says the Rukha, because they will rest from their labors.” 14 And behold, [there was] a white cloud and on the cloud sat [one] like the Son of Man and he had on his head a crown of gold and in his hand [was] a sharp sickle. 15 And another angel came out from the temple and cried out with a loud voice to him who sat on the cloud, “Send your sickle and harvest, because the hour to harvest has come.” 16 And that [one] who sat on the cloud cast out his sickle on the earth and the earth was harvested. 17 And another angel came out from the temple that is in heaven and a sharp sickle was on him. 18 And another angel came out from the altar, who had authority over fire and cried out with a loud voice to him who had the sharp sickle, “Send your sharp sickle and gather the clusters of the vineyard of the earth, because of the ripeness of her grapes.” 19 And the angel cast out his sickle on the earth and gathered the vineyard of the earth and he cast [it] into the great winepress of the fury of Alaha. 20 And the winepress was trodden outside the city and blood came out from the winepress to the bridles of the horses for one thousand and two hundred furlongs.

REVELATION CHAPTER 15
And I saw another sign in heaven, great and marvelous, angels who had the seven last injuries, for in them the fury of Alaha is completed. 2 And I saw as a sea of glass mingled with fire and those who had conquered over the creature and over his image and over the number of his name were standing on top of the sea of glass and they had the harps of Alaha. 3 And they were praising the praise song of Mushe, the servant of Alaha, and the praise song of the Lamb and were saying, “Great and wondrous [are] your works, Marya Alaha Almighty, upright and true [are] your works, King of the ages. 4 Who will not fear you, Marya, and glorify your name? Because you alone are innocent, because all the nations will come and will worship before you, because you are right.” 5 And after these [things], I looked and the temple of the tabernacle of witness was opened in heaven. 6 And the seven angels came out from the temple, who had the seven injuries, being clothed with pure and shining linen cloth and girded on their breasts [with] a girdle of gold. 7 And one of the four living creatures gave to the seven angels seven bowls filled with the fury of Alaha, who is alive forever and ever. Amen. 8 And the temple was filled with the smoke of the glory of Alaha and with his power and there was no one who was able to enter the temple until the seven injuries of the seven angels were completed.

REVELATION CHAPTER 16
And I heard a loud voice from the temple that said to the seven angels, “Go and pour the seven bowls of the fury of Alaha on the earth.” 2 And the first went and poured his bowl on the earth and an evil and painful ulcer came on the men who had the mark of the creature and [on] those who were worshipping his image. 3 And the second angel poured his bowl into the sea and the sea became as dead and every living creature died in the sea. 4 And the third angel poured his bowl into the rivers and into the fountains of waters and they became blood. 5 And I heard the angel of the waters saying, “You are just, who is and was, and innocent, for you have judged these, 6 because they have shed the blood of the prophets and the holy [ones]. And you have given them blood to drink, [which] they deserve.” 7 And I heard [another] at the altar who said, “Yes, Marya Alaha Almighty, true and just [are] your judgments.” 8 And the fourth angel poured his bowl on the sun and it was given to him to scorch men with fire. 9 And men were scorched by the great heat and they reviled the name of Alaha, who has authority over these injuries, and they did not repent, to give him glory.10 And the fifth angel poured his bowl on the throne of the creature and his kingdom became dark and they were biting their tongues from pain. 11 And they reviled the name of the Alaha of heaven because of their pains and because of their ulcers and they did not repent of their works. 12 And the sixth angel poured his bowl on the great river, Pherath, and its water dried up to prepare the road for the kings from the east. 13 And I saw [coming] out of the mouth of the dragon and out of the mouth of the creature and out of the mouth of the false prophet, three unclean spirits, like frogs, 14 for they are the spirits of demons that do signs, that are going against the kings of the inhabited earth to gather them for the battle of that great day of Alaha Almighty. 15 Behold, he comes as a thief. Blessed [is] he who watches and keeps his garments, so that he should not walk naked and they should see his shame. 16 And he gathered them to a place that is called Magdu in Evraith. 17 And the seventh angel poured his bowl into the air and a loud voice came out of the temple from before the throne that said, “It is [done].” 18 And there were lightning bolts and thunderings and there was a huge earthquake, the like of which had not happened since men had been on the earth, for so great was this shaking. 19 And the great city became three parts and the cities of the nations fell, and Babel the great was remembered before Alaha to give to her the cup of the wine of his fury and of his anger. 20 And every island fled away and the mountains were not found. 21 And large hail, as a talent, came down from heaven on men and the men reviled Alaha because of the injury of the hail, because the injury of it was very great.

REVELATION CHAPTER 17
And one of the seven angels who had the seven bowls came and spoke with me, saying, “Follow me. I will show you the judgment of the harlot who sits on many waters, 2 with whom the kings of the earth fornicated and all the inhabitants of the earth became drunk from the wine of her fornication.” 3 And he led me to the wilderness spiritually and I saw a woman who was sitting on the red creature that was full of the names of blasphemy that had seven heads and ten Page 271 of 276
1

horns. 4 And the woman was clothed with purple and scarlet [garments] that were gilded with gold and precious stones and pearls and she had a cup of gold in her hand and it was full of the abomination and pollution of her fornication. 5 And on her forehead it was written, “Mystery, Babel the great, mother of harlots and of pollutions of the earth.” 6 And I saw that the woman was drunk from the blood of the holy [ones] and from the blood of the witnesses of Yeshue. And I wondered [with] great wonder when I saw her. 7 And the angel said to me, “Why do you wonder? I will tell you the mystery of the woman and of the creature that carries her that has seven heads and ten horns. 8 The creature that you saw was and is not [and] is going to come up from the sea and go to destruction. And [those] living on the earth will wonder, whose names are not written in the scroll of life from the foundations of the world, when they see the creature that was and is not and approaches. 9 Here [is] understanding for him who has wisdom. The seven heads are seven mountains on which the woman sits.10 And there are seven kings, five have fallen and one is [and] the other has not yet come. And when he comes, he must continue [for] a little while. 11 And the dragon and the creature that was and is not, even he is the eighth and is one of the seven and goes to destruction. 12 And the ten horns that you saw are ten kings who have not yet received a kingdom, but they take authority as kings [for] one hour with the creature. 13 These have one will, and they give their own power and authority to the creature. 14 These will make war with the Lamb and the Lamb will conquer them, because he is Lord of l
